Aims for satire and settles for stale shtick.

Greg Grunberg helps keep things light in a Corman-esque monster movie.

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.

Audience Reviews for Big Ass Spider!

Amusing B movie horror comedy that is surprisingly well made film considering its budget. This genre is lots of fun when it's done right, and with this film, we get just that. The film had a few weak parts, but overall it does succeed as an entertaining comedy horror film. The cast do good work here, and I thought that it was a return to form for these types of movies. If you enjoy sheer ridiculousness in films, then this is a film for you. There are times where I felt that the films potential didn't reach its fullest, but for what we get, this is still a good, entertaining ride. If you enjoy low budget horror flicks, then give this one a shot. The film has plenty of elements to make it worth seeing, but at times, the script could have been polished a bit. However that's to be expected from films like this, and you really can't expect anything great here. Big Ass Spider has its flaws, but the idea is quite good, and it is a fun, and highly entertaining return to films like Arachnophobia and Eight Legged Freaks, which are better, but this film manages to have that essence of what made those movies appealing. For a low budget affair, this film is very creative in terms of special effects and story. The film also has plenty of funny bits throughout and manages to join the genre as a fun, and silly movie that is exactly what you need to see with a group of friends. Don't expect a great film; just expect a good film, one that manages to entertain you with its ridiculous premise and fun humor.

'Big Ass Spider!'. As absurd and fun as the name suggests! B-grade goodness meant for a midnight screening with an audience.
