I look at the trailer again and marvel at the depth and scope of the story , a Liverpool fable or dream with deep undercurrents anyway watch the trailer follow Matopulas on all social media and give Peter a follow he will appreciate

Big Ass Spider – Mike Mendez (2013) Review

Big Ass Spider (2013) Poster

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.

Foyle’s War New Season Filming Exclusive Shots

After Morse we got Foyle’s War now filming it’s 9th Season in Liverpool which stands in for London and on the Wirral where my wife and i caught with them in West Kirby our hometown, setting up camp in the car park near to Morrisons Car Park, caterers and props offloaded, we have a diverse location here Paul Bettany’s Blood was filmed here and on the Wirral some parts of Fast and The Furious 6 although i have to say a Morris 8 would not out run a Dodge Challenger but it has as much style.
Set in the turbulent era of the Cold War following on from the war it will be interesting to see the locations and how they are utilised , Hilbre Island is a big attraction so it is possible they would use this before the fracking starts.
Below are the first images i have captured and hopefully i might get some more as Acorn Productions progress with filming.
