This is an intentionally funny/silly B-movie featuring indeed a big ass spider, as the film's title suggests. A really big, bad ass alien spider that keeps getting bigger.

A pest control guy who is an incredibly unlikely hero finds himself leading the charge to save L.A from spider-induced destruction as the alien creature increases in size and mayhem at an ever increasing rate. Along the way he also picks up a love interest to help him on his quest as the spider's kill count gets higher and higher. That's pretty much it and pretty much all it needs to get by on without causing offence and keeping you entertained to the end.

It's cheesy, corny, over the top and hilariously bad but still perfectly 100% watchable and enjoyable - they have made the most of the limited budget with some decent acting and although it's B-movie, it's not a bad one at all. If you're looking for a serious creature-feature full of horror and terror then of course you will be disappointed, but if you're looking for a camp funny film that doesn't take itself seriously or have an alternative agenda then you'll probably enjoy it - especially if you like big ass spiders.

One of the funniest films I've seen for a while, the quality of acting and special effects, especially in the park scenes, had me in stitches! Obviously not to be taken seriously, and just as obviously deliberately so, but if you like spoof films and fancy a lighthearted laugh then highly recommended! When's the sequel coming out????

Well first of all its a B-Movie. It doesnt take it self seriously and actually makes fun of itself which makes the film enjoyable to watch. The acting, for a B-movie is suprisingly good. The extras have pretty rubbish acting but the main cast were good. The story is pretty basic. Nothing too impressive.

If you sit down expecting this film to be an awesome flick you will be dissapointed. But ive seen a fair few B-movies and this is defo worth a watch.

The Best B-Movie I have ever seen...not the best film I've ever seen but a lot better than I was expecting. Great characters, witty dialogue, great visual gags and very good special effects...made me laugh and kept me gripped til the very end...there was a sort of slight Ghostbusters vibe but more relaxed...excellent little movie.

Exterminator Alex Mathis (Greg Grunberg) likes women and loathes fruitcake. Through a series of improbable circumstances he gets to fight an aggressive BA spider along side of the US military with a Mexican sidekick.

In a number of scenes Grunberg reminded me of Kevin James and I had a few John Goodman flashbacks. The film had blood and cheesy props (notice the thanks to Lloyd Kaufman in the credits) . The "horror" aspect simply didn't exist. Overly accomplished, relatively unknown Clare Kramer provided the love interest.

Great for cheese lovers.

Parental Guide: No words, sex, or nudity. Bikini girls being chased by BS spider.

This film fell flat for me. Every attempt at comedy was just abysmal.

There really is no point discussing any other aspect of the film really, plot holes and character development are unimportant to a comedy as long as its funny.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 28 Feb. 2014

It's a movie called "Big Ass Spider!" Guess what it's about. You get three guesses, and the first two guesses don't count.

And yes, I had to watch it. With a title like "Big Ass Spider!," who could possibly resist? It's pretty much exactly the movie that that amazing title promises -- a modern B-movie creature feature, centering on a monstrous spider that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. And while you might initially suspect that it's a SyFy-style disaster, it's also a very well-made film.

It opens in the middle of a scene you'd expect of such a movie -- a blimp-sized spider destroying a skyscraper, while helicopters buzz around helplessly. Exterminator Alex Mathis (Greg Grunberg) watches helplessly, while Storm Large's hauntingly pretty cover of "Where Is My Mind?" plays.

Skip back to a day before. In the middle of an autopsy, a rat-sized spider crawls out of a corpse and attacks the mortician. Alex happens to be there getting a spider-bite treated, so he's willing to handle the giant spider if they drop his bill. Along with security guard Jose (Lombardo Boyar), he ventures into the depths of the hospital... only to find that the spider has gotten much, much bigger. Also, it can melt off your face.

Then a Special Forces unit shows up to take over the hospital, trying to find and lock down the spider before it can get any bigger. Big shock: they fail, and the spider becomes larger and larger, killing countless people as it goes. It falls to Alex, with his encyclopedic knowledge of spiders and their ways, to find a way to take it down before it has a bunch of spider babies!

"Big Ass Spider!" basically wants to be a modern version of those 1950s creature movies with giant bugs and spiders.
