Evan Dickson graces us with his review from the World Premiere of Big Ass Spider!, which took place at last week’s SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas.

Directed by genre fav Mike Mendez, and starring Greg Grunberg, Lombardo Boyar, Clare Kramer, Ray Wise, Lin Shaye and Patrick Bauchau, the comedy begins when a giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampages across the city of Los Angeles.

Dickson calls Spider!, “A film that’s simultaneously humble and ambitious,” further adding, “It’s a movie that sets out to elevate the terrain usually staked out for Asylum type productions and build something more enjoyable on it. In that regard, the film succeeds.

And if it weren’t already obvious, “Big Ass Spider! will be a nice movie for that night when you want to crack open a few beers and hang with some friends.

    I never would have thought that I would be so excited to see a movie called ‘Big Ass Spider!’

    So many of these films sound like good cheesy fun and then end up failing to deliver any enjoyment at all. I think anyone who watches the trailer can tell what kind of movie they’re going to get – its refreshing to hear that it actually delivers!
