With a movie called "Big Ass Spider!" you kind of know what you're in for.
Somehow ... feels like a letdown, in part for its lack of surprise or invention.
The makers of this humorless horror comedy seemed to think that the mere existence of a gigantic, humanity-threatening spider would be enough.
Director Mike Mendez brings his homage to those wacky creepy-crawly flicks of yesteryear to life with enough energy for several films.
[Blu-ray Review] No one will be confusing "Big Ass Spider!" for anything more than it isa silly sci-fi comedy about a giant spider on the looseand that's okay.
It's a lively, slick little film with a clear ambition to revive the thrills and chills of the subgenre, with particular attention to consistency and gaiety.
The most pressing mental involvement that Mike Mendez's silly, scary guilty pleasure requires is - where does one place the inflection?
With a 30-rack of brewskis and some equally demented friends, Big Ass Spider could be one rockin' midnight movie experience worth a good laugh.
...oesn't deserve to be treated as one of those awful, misbegotten projects that can only be enjoyed ironically. It's a genuinely nice little movie and the people involved with it ought to have the opportunity to make more movies.
Revels in its silliness, and has a good time with its premise, creating a fun monster movie...
"Big Ass Spider!" has a big ass problem: It thinks you're better than the material.
All the pacing of a classic monster movie is here, though director Mike Mendez is a bit more generous with revealing his carnivorous critter than some (I assume the budget was fairly small, but he gets value out of it).
It is a low-budget production, but genre fans should still adore this anarchic monster movie.
If you are a fan of the big monster genre Big Ass Spider! is a great film to waste a Friday night on.
