Big Ass Spider! (Blu-ray, 2014)
Since premiering at SXSW, BIG ASS SPIDER has crawled around the festival circuit, trapping victims into its web of hilarity. A loving b-movie celebration, this is not one of your ‘so-bad-it’s-good’ cheese fest’s, this is just seriously good and seriously funny. When a bio-engineered alien spider escapes from a military base, it isn’t long before the entire city of Los Angeles is under attack from the fast moving, rapidly-growing, venom-spewing arachnid! With the military hopelessly outclassed, it’s up to local exterminator, Alex (Greg Grunberg), and his security guard sidekick, José, to take this giant bug down. Armed with rifles, shotguns, and a rocket launcher, the pair of unlikely heroes set out to save the world and squash the BIG ASS SPIDER once and for all!
