Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers, The Convent)’s once titled Mega Spider has now been appropriately retitled as BIG ASS SPIDER, and has a debuted its first look with a trailer that shows the monstrous arachnid destroying Los Angeles. BIG ASS SPIDER will make its premiere at the South By Southwest film festival, and should receive a limited release before hitting video and streaming services.
I’m digging the humor in the trailer, and glad it’s not veering into a tongue-in-cheek mockbuster like the kind that plagues the SyFy channel. Be on the lookout for an effect that homages RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, which is pure win in my book. Check it out below!
