Big Ass Spider! Trailer

No, it’s not an Asylum release, and it’s not a Syfy original… it’s just one of the many movies premiering at this year’s SXSW Midnighters program! Big Ass Spider! is a high concept / low budget monster movie with a title that is primed and ready to go viral. The only thing missing is a catch phrase uttered by Samuel L. Jackson. But is it too self-aware to be genuinely funny?

Directed by Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers), the movie stars Greg Grunberg (Heroes), Lin Shaye (Insidious) and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks). Unfortunately, the digital effects look pretty terrible at times… but, wait, maybe they’re terrible on purpose! Movies like this tend to walk a fine line, I’m just not quite sure what side it will fall on. Big Ass Spider! premieres next month in Austin; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
