With a title like "Big Ass Spider" there isn't much left to the imagination yet the great chemistry between Grunberg and Boyar and the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously make this movie stand out from others like it.
started off great. and some really funny intentional comedy with a stupid tone. but then it seemed to try to take itself seriously, which made me take it seriously and is the reason i didn't like this more. this could have been a great B-movie. the hispanic guy was really funny. (1 viewing)
Similar to something like Sharktopus, Big Ass Spider uses what little it has within its very small budget and makes the most of it. Though it's still only for the b movie enthusiast there's enough energy on screen and affection for the genre to keep it well above the standards set by SyFy and Asylum.
haha, i thought this movie was great! i laughed more at this than i do most comedy movies -- & as far as giant animals go, this one wasn't bad. not bad at all. i think it's a great light-hearted "scary" movie. A+
I love this movie it is hilarious! I wouldn't call it a horror movie..which me and my mom found it in that category...but as we kept watching it, it got funnier and funnier..i would TOTALLY recommend this movie to others.
Calling "Big Ass Spider!" one of the best Creature Features of recent years might not be too high a praise, but there's some value to be found in the film's balances, and a Lloyd Kaufman cameo never goes astray either.
