Los Angeles Horror, is a community, and there is proof to that in how many people showed up to support “Big Ass Spider,” both while in production and during their grass roots tour across the world, film festival to film festival, Facebook to twitter, with legions of fans to follow.
"Big Ass Spider" is a movie that was shot entirety in Los Angeles, Directed by native Los Angeleno Mike Mendez, using Downtown LA as a backdrop. Personally, this Los Angeleno enjoyed watching LA in danger, with portions getting demolished by an alien spider.
“Big Ass Spider”, is, you guessed it, it is about a very large alien spider, originally titled Mega Spider, starring Greg Grunberg (Heros, The Client List, Alias, Felicity), Clare Kramer (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Lin Shaye (Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2), Ray Wise (Twin Peaks), with guest appearances from pretty much everyone in horror, see close knit community statement above. More on this when I publish my interview with Director Mike Mendez.
Wondering if "Big Ass Spider" is for you? If you like the blatantly campy, yet well done and fun genre of horror, then "Big Ass Spider" is for you. You might be wondering, yes but other than a spider what is this movie about? A military lab looses a gigantic alien spider, or better said the spider escapes, the military’s efforts of capture fail, one exterminator and some scientists are left to kill the alien spider before Los Angeles is destroyed. It's basically Ghost Busters, sans ghost and with only one buster, and a team of Scooby-Doo sans dog, with an alien spider antagonist. Like I said, campy fun.
