Big Ass Spider – Mike Mendez (2013) Review
Once upon a time i was a teenager looking for thrills and went to an old cinema called The Phoenix and saw my first grown up horror film Prophecy (1979) , that was a let down a toxic mutant hairless teddy bear well i laughed my way through it, i am sad as it was a John Frankenheimer film and i guess expected more after the likes of French Connection II and Birdman of Alcatraz so i was searching for more creature features Jaws (1975) was excellent and well crafted , but here i could digress into Frogs, Night Of The Lepus etc.
On the social legend that is Twitter i heard of a film mysterious and interesting about spiders not your Arachnaphobia kind but big, bigger , biggest and had an ass as well
what a shocker so i discovered Big Ass Spider , Gregory Gieras not a screenwriter i am familiar with had written this tale would it outrun Sharknado i had to find out, alas no cinema near me carried it but i got my hands on it as a DVD with an amazing hologram cover i was ecstatic to say the least.
The story line could of been overwrought and contrived no it was not, it had drama , danger and humor a casserole of scary delight awaited me Mike Mendez delivered the action swiftly and without troubling it with excess fat , trimmed meat like human prey broiled to perfection
So this spider i hear you say what is so bad about it well Alex Mathis bug hunter was a bit afraid but he has not said on his twitter feed, Greg Grunberg does not have a dirty white vest or a bandana , he has goggles safety ones at that, and of course his side kick Lombardo Boyar is Jose Ramos and more dashing than Zorro, and of course there is a girl Carly Kramer as Lieutenant Carly Brant she is military grade kick ass with a soft spot for bug men, so now you see and will see when you watch the terror become unleashed.
our heroes are swashbuckling and almost confident as they pursue the great terror and you get very attached ordinary guys in an extraordinary situation so buckle up with them and enjoy this ride.
This film joins the ranks of amazing and i will be watching again maybe another Big Ass will appear so rent, buy , VOD or watch when it comes to SyFy and i wish you Happy Viewing
