In an age when the grindhouse doesn't really exist anymore, it seems that Big Ass Spider! is made solely for a solitary snickering viewing.

Mike Mendez's film is closer to recent sci-fi cable TV movies like Sharknado than the sleazy exploitation fare of the '70s.

"Big Ass Spider!" has a big ass problem: It thinks you're better than the material.

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.

The relative lack of filler is another factor that sets Big Ass Spider! apart from other members of its ilk.

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.

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.

A hilarious and wildly entertaining b-movie romp that knows exactly what kind of movie it's supposed to be.

This is squirmy, hilarious fun.

...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.

The most pressing mental involvement that Mike Mendez's silly, scary guilty pleasure requires is - where does one place the inflection?

Judged solely on the scale of Giant Spider Cinema, the slick and silly Big Ass Spider ranks surprisingly high.

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.

Revels in its silliness, and has a good time with its premise, creating a fun monster movie...
January 6, 2014
Director Mike Mendez brings his homage to those wacky creepy-crawly flicks of yesteryear to life with enough energy for several films.

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

It's the kind of movie you wish they still had drive-ins for.
