We have been sharing images for well over a year now for director Mike Mendez'(The Convent, Gravedancers) creature feature, Mega Spider. The film is about to have its world premiere at the SXSW Festival, and the film has also been re-titled as the much more crowd friendly Big Ass Spider, because, in all fairness, it is a pretty big ass spider!
The first trailer has finally landed, and you can enjoy all the B-movie goodness below!
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.
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 Big Ass Spider!
