If you read through yesterday’s announcement of the Midnight features lined up for March’s SXSW Film Festival, one film title may have caught your eye. Nestled in among the serious entries is the film called Big Ass Spider!, from director Mike Mendez… and yeah, it’s about a giant spider.
I really don’t know what to say about the film beyond that. Well, perhaps this: the trailer for the movie demonstrates that Mendez made this movie with a free-for-all spirit that leaves room for gags based on memes, video games, monster movies, and just about anything else you can think of. I don’t know if I needed the stale bed intruder joke, but there’s plenty of other material here that looks like a good time.
Afraid of spiders? Might want to avoid the video below.
Big Ass Spider premieres in March at SXSW in Austin, TX.
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 entire city is destroyed. BIG ASS SPIDER! (aka MEGA SPIDER)
