The poison, which is the Spider's first attack, will take off huge amounts of HP so heal up with a potion. Smack away at it, using spells or weapons to kill it.

As you progress, zombies will rise from their graves to hinder you, but they're not that strong. Beware of their traps which will instantly kill you if you trigger them. Steer clear of that smooth stepping stone or you'll die.

Go go go, Draugrs will step out of graves to try to get you, kill them, then pull this chain to open the door and progress into a cavern where some more draugrs will wait.

At the entrance to the Temple, a lone Restless Draugr will be here. He does a LOT of damage, so I recommend caution.
