Freaking Hilarious and feel good monster B-Movie
24 July 2014 | by (San Luis, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Big Ass Spider! is a freaking B-Movie !

OK, I said it. You can pretty much guessed that because of the title, also, the way the movie starts, pretty much says it all.

You're gonna see a freaking B-Movie and it's going to be awesome.

Big Ass spider starts ultra-fast, it uses very little time to develop it's characters and do it in a fantastic way, you have to take into consideration that these are going to be one-dimensional characters, because this is a freaking B-Movie.

Why I keep repeating this is very important because the director and producers actually tried very hard to make a good B-Movie out of this, so, this movie is plagued with cheesy lines, cameos, jokes about other monster movies and so on..

There is more than one thing this director gets right about this movie but dialog and acting comes first and this is where the movie truly shines, from guys almost laughing at a scary scene to the hilarious duo of the exterminator and the Mexican who start talking in Spanish when is nervous and the incredible stupid soldiers that stands still waiting to be killed, this movie is hilarious.

There are a couple of nice places lines and cameos, like imitating scenes from Aliens and calling stupid names on the soldiers. (Private Green, SO good).

The feel good aspect of the movie really stands out, primary because all the people involved was working fully aware they were going to do a b- movie, so they intentionally acted weird, they almost laugh at scary scenes, they jump and screams and say things out of timing and yes, incredible as it is, it works and you can actually feel this guys are having a lot of fun!

I watched it almost completely sure I was gonna hate it and I end up loving it.

Perfect movie for watching with friends and having a few laughs, specially if you're old like me and remember the 80' movies, not recommended for the serious movie-goer who can't stand a cheesy movie.
