A movie like BIG ASS SPIDER should be gory and funny. Mike Mendez's little movie is set in LA. The effects don't look great, but the thing here is that the movie doesn't seem to be taking itself too seriously and that's definitely a huge plus.
The plot for the movie sounds like this:
“A giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampage the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to a team of scientists and one clever exterminator to kill the creature before the city is destroyed.”
Yes, it's as cheesy as it sounds, but it looks like a good movie to eat popcorn like a maniac, doesn't it? We'll let the trailer do the talking.
BIG ASS SPIDER will debut on SXSW March 8th.
