I will admit I may be a biased with my review but I will say that this film is really, really fun ride. If you like to laugh and love creature features, you are going to enjoy this film. It is a totally entertaining buddy comedy about an exterminator and a security guard who team up to take down the world's largest spider. Set in LA, the film moves really fast and gives you lots of funny and suspenseful moments. I recommend you take a look. It is not Men in Black in terms of budget, but it makes up for it on so many other levels.

Big Ass Spider is a great movie. Well written, beautifully produced and directed. Scary and Hilarious! I loved Lloyd Kaufman's cameo. He is one of my favorite directors.... -Lloyd Kaufman

Just because I star in this movie does not mean that I am biased. I watched it with a completely open mind. My mind was completely opened and I was completely drunk. It's one of the best movies ever made. We had a blast making it and I really hope you enjoy it. @GregGrunberg

It's a movie called "Big Ass Spider!" Guess what it's about. You get three guesses, and the first two guesses don't count.

And yes, I had to watch it. With a title like "Big Ass Spider!," who could possibly resist? It's pretty much exactly the movie that that amazing title promises -- a modern B-movie creature feature, centering on a monstrous spider that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. And while you might initially suspect that it's a SyFy-style disaster, it's also a very well-made film.

It opens in the middle of a scene you'd expect of such a movie -- a blimp-sized spider destroying a skyscraper, while helicopters buzz around helplessly. Exterminator Alex Mathis (Greg Grunberg) watches helplessly, while Storm Large's hauntingly pretty cover of "Where Is My Mind?" plays.

Skip back to a day before. In the middle of an autopsy, a rat-sized spider crawls out of a corpse and attacks the mortician. Alex happens to be there getting a spider-bite treated, so he's willing to handle the giant spider if they drop his bill. Along with security guard Jose (Lombardo Boyar), he ventures into the depths of the hospital... only to find that the spider has gotten much, much bigger. Also, it can melt off your face.

Then a Special Forces unit shows up to take over the hospital, trying to find and lock down the spider before it can get any bigger. Big shock: they fail, and the spider becomes larger and larger, killing countless people as it goes. It falls to Alex, with his encyclopedic knowledge of spiders and their ways, to find a way to take it down before it has a bunch of spider babies!

"Big Ass Spider!" basically wants to be a modern version of those 1950s creature movies with giant bugs and spiders.

My wife and I watched this movie Big Ass Spider last night Directed by Mike Mendez and written by Gregory Gieras. It had a great cast including Ray Wise, Greg Grunberg, Lin Shaye, Patrick Bauchau, Clare Kramer and many more. This movie was well written, well directed and great effects. We love spider movies and some we have seen was rather shotty and looked like it was done with a home video camera. This movie is different. This one was very well filmed. We laughed all the way through this movie. I am looking forward to any other films Mike has done. I have seen a couple of his films in the past, The Covent and Gravedancers an both was great. This movie and the other two i have mentioned and saw is indeed a great addition to your video library. My wife added this to the preview. to be nearly 2 hours I don't get back?" It has the goofy title like Pumpkinhead but turns out to be a really good movie. The Mexican security guard just makes it, he's hysterical and the rapport between him and the main character is great. You have to listen close or you'll miss the off the cuff statements. I can't complain about the graphics either, they were pretty darned good, better than I was expecting. I also had at least one "oh hell no" moment as I hate spiders no matter what size. Yechhhh.....

Delightful B-Movie Sports Accomplished Camp Sensibilities: Fun For the Whole Family!

Confession: I love B movies when (and usually only when) they’re well made. What that means to me is that all of the particulars associated to said B movie – the writer, the cast, the crew – are “in” on it. From the outset, they realize that their movie may not have the chance to legitimately compete with the latest Michael Bay gloss-fest, the next effects-laden miracle from Peter Jackson, or anything Steven Spielberg chooses to put his name on (even when he’s phoning it in). Well-made B movies are genius: they’re a celebration of exactly what film could be when everyone in it decides to just ‘have fun with it.’ It doesn’t mean that the material gets disrespected; rather, it means that the various players realize their only shot at greatest is breaking through the glass ceiling of critics in favor of finding that soft, soft place in the hearts of movie fans everywhere.

With a name like BIG ASS SPIDER!, one really should know what one’s getting into right away. Thankfully, it delivers almost everything it could: a celebration of things that go bump in the night with a handful of laughs along the way.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

L.A. – aka Los Angeles – is about to face its most dire challenge yet. No, it isn’t an earthquake. It isn’t a tsunami. It isn’t the Obama Administration.
