As if you needed proof that Mike Mendez’s new film Mega Spider was gonna be anything less than amazing, some new artwork was revealed at AFM which proves just how great this new creature feature will be! Giant Spiders? Pah!! This is a Mega Spider dear people and check out the size of the darned thing in the artwork at the bottom of this post!
The film is written by Gregory Gieras and stars Ray Wise, Greg Grunberg, Lin Shaye, Clare Kramer, Lloyd Kaufman and Alexis Peters. Mike Mendez is no stranger to horror, previously directing The Convent, Killers and Grave Dancers. A new synopsis was also revealed at AFM:
Surviving extermination by nuclear eradication, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is now growing at an exponential rate and making its way toward downtown Los Angeles. Hot on its spindly heels is a crack military unit with absolute authority, lead by an obsessively driven commander and his beautiful but lethal sidekick.
Unfortunately for them, this mutant spider has an array of deadly defenses including the ability to virtually disappear through camouflage. But the creature’s real adversary quickly turns out to be a hot-shot local exterminator armed only with cocky attitude, some fast one-liners and his home-made gadgets. Joining forces with the military team, this blue-collar hero sets out to exterminate what has now become a monstrous 10-story tall MEGA SPIDER.
