    Grunberg and Boyar have a charming, if broad, chemistry. It’s all kind of cheesy, of course, but it’s meant to be. And the effects, when not deliberately silly, aren’t bad.

    Big Ass Spider! wants to serve two masters, the ones who unabashedly enjoy this type of movie without shame, and the ones who openly mock it with false senses of superiority.

    The movie has a fan's heart, a sense of loving every goofball moment, but as directed by Mike Mendez it also seems perpetually caught between being a spoof or playing it straight and winds up falling between the cracks rather than rising above.

It's obvious that everyone in this film is having a blast and it translates well to audience enjoyment. If you're looking for a funny movie that pays homage to the old-time monster films, you'd be hard pressed to find a better choice. Mike Mendez has done a great job and I hope he makes more just like this. Full Review »

However this movie was a fun watch. It starts up attempting to be funny, some gags do not work but others are good for a chuckle but it quickly goes into hunting the spider and with some likable side characters it really was not that bad of a watch. The graphics were not good but not awful either. Most importantly the movie did not take itself seriously without going over the top like Sharknado did. Overall 6/10 a B-Movie that was fun to watch.
