Look like a Sci-Fi channel movie. Pass.

A movie like this would actually be pretty cool with a decent budget like Tremors was. This is not it however...

Guess the criteria to be an "Official Selection" at SXSW is not very high.

Still looks better than The Canyons.

Maybe it's because I love the old giant mutant monster movies like "Tarantula" but this doesn't do anything for me.

Meh, it looks like one of those movies that tries to hide it's shitty script, lousy acting, and microscopic budget by pretending to be cleverer than it really is.

Sort of like what I do in every day interactions.

It's funny that this OTHER spider movie also has a trailer that popped up around the same time

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/independent/spiders/

If anything Spiders looks a little better CGI wise than Big Ass Spider.

But either way they both do NOT deserve to get theatrical runs!

I'd watch Spiders but that Big Ass Spider trailer was embarrassingly bad. I like corny and campy but draw the line at total garbage.
