Watch: Full Trailer for SXSW Selected B-Movie Horror 'Big Ass Spider'

September 24, 2013

Big Ass Spider

Following a debut at SXSW 2013 in the Midnighters section, Big Ass Spider, a Ray Harryhausen-esque monster movie where a massive spider attacks Los Angeles, is coming to theaters and VOD. The unlikely heroic duo of a blue-collar exterminator (Greg Grunberg) and Latino security guard (Lombardo Boyar) must save the day when a giant spider escapes from a military lab and rampages across the City of Angels. It's got all the makings of a ridiculous B-movie, but the special effects look pretty decent, and the action looks like a lot of fun. We just wish the film was R-rated instead of PG-13 for maximum horror craziness.

Here's the full theatrical trailer for Mike Mendez's Big Ass Spider via Deadline:

Big Ass Spider is directed by Mike Mendez and written by Gregory Gieras. When a giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampages across the city of Los Angeles, it is up to one clever exterminator and his security guard sidekick to kill the creature before the city is destroyed. Greg Grunberg, Lombardo Boyar, Clare Kramer, Ray Wise, Lin Shaye, Patrick Bauchau all star in the film which premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier this year and hits VOD and limited theaters on October 18th. Look cool?

Is anyone getting tired of the same, lame jokes in EVERY movie? This doesn't look funny, or ridiculous, or fun, but just another movie for suckers who will go see anything if the studios can get them with a trailer.

I doubt anyone will ever watch this in a cinema, or on DVD, this is streaming sites only.

And for free or a buck it will most likely be quite fun.

Brian Sleider on Sep 24, 2013


Deffo Brian, it will probably be a laugh, Greg Grunberg is pretty funny.

When they can't come up with one funny line in a trailer that hasn't been done a hundred times before, how can it possibly be any good. Stop throwing your money at lousy movies and demand Hollywood make better films, comedies and otherwise. If people accept this crap, they will just keep throwing it at you. Raise your standards and we all will win.

They'll keep throwing crap movies out whether I watch them on tv or not Chuckee. 99% of movies made each year are borderline rubbish.

Carpola on Sep 25, 2013


I'll see half of it when it plays on TV.

For every 'Pacific Rim' and 'Cloverfield' and 'Super 8' we NEED a 'Big Ass Spider'... I for one say well done, bring it on.

Looks super fun! And there's already been a couple of fun horror flicks for this to join this year along with "Bad Milo" and "Hell Baby".... SO bring it on!!!
