You never know what you’re gonna find in Walmart. Among all the chicks with Wolverine-like sideburns and Nascar jackets, our own Foywonder came across the Blu-ray for Mike Mendez’s latest flick, Big Ass Spider! (review), and noticed a pretty interesting (and senseless) change to it.
Apparently the retail chain (a.k.a. the 7th circle of hell) has taken issue with the word “Ass” in the film’s title and changed the cover art via a family-friendly(!) graffiti font to read BigGEST Spider!. However, they did add the film’s correct moniker under their bastardized title hackjob anyway.
This leads us to only one possible conclusion – Walmart fears the usage of Mike Mendez’s ass. What we wouldn’t do to see that written on an employee picket sign the next time the chain treats its workers like crap and they decide to strike! SAY IT LOUD!
If that isn’t enough, we have a new clip for you too featuring Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman tangoing with the multi-legged tyrant!
Battling the beast are Greg Grunberg (“Heroes”, “Alias”) and Lombardo Boyar (“The Bernie Mac Show”), who star as Alex, an exterminator, and Jose, his security guard sidekick, respectively. The unlikely heroes team up with an elite military unit that includes genre vets Clare Kramer (The Gravedancers) and Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class, “Twin Peaks”).

Surviving extermination by nuclear eradication, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is now growing at an exponential rate and making its way toward downtown Los Angeles. Hot on its spindly heels is a crack military unit with absolute authority, led by an obsessively driven commander and his beautiful but lethal sidekick. Unfortunately for them, this mutant spider has an array of deadly defenses including the ability to virtually disappear through camouflage. But the creature’s real adversary quickly turns out to be a hot-shot local exterminator armed only with cocky attitude, some fast one-liners and his homemade gadgets. Joining forces with the military team, this blue-collar hero sets out to exterminate what has now become a monstrous 10-story tall MEGA SPIDER.
