How would you say "the spider is hanging from the wall"?

Which would, in fact, be the right way to say it. You cannot hang on something, unless it lies horizontally.

I still think the English translation is not correct. Unless the spider is just hanging out...

If I say "the spider is hanging over the wall" is it wrong? Why?

Being 'on' is not the same as being 'over'. One can hang on from under or from the side.
