Big Ass Spider! Re-Release Spins a Web!

Big Ass Spider

Just in time for National Save a Spider Day on March 14, 2017, the Epic feature film Big Ass Spider! will be unleashed across multiple streaming platforms.

In the 2013 film a ginormous alien arachnid escapes from a military lab and rampages with eight-legged freakiness throughout the city of Los Angeles, taking out people, cars, and buildings along the way. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to three brave souls – Alex (Greg Grunberg), Carly (Clare Kramer), and Jose (Lombardo Boyar) – to zap the cranky creature before the city is creamed.

We had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the heroes, who took us back in time to talk about how the movie was hatched. They revealed that the pic was initially called Mega Spider, and while it wasn’t a bad title, it just didn’t have the cachet of Big Ass Spider! (with the requisite exclamation point, of course). Though the flick is a few years old, fans still tell Greg, Clare, and Lombardo how much they love it.

The cast attributes a monster hunk of the movie’s enduring success to its director and fearless leader, Mike Mendez. All the creepy creature stuff is “right out of Mike’s brain,” Greg said. Mendez made sure there was an array of cool cameos from genre heroes in Big Ass Spider!, just to give it that extra oomph. Be sure and look for cameos by Lin Shaye, Ray Wise, and Lloyd Kaufman to name a few.

While there is indeed a big ass spider in the tale of terror, Greg, Clare, and Lombardo all talked about the magical combo of comedy and heart in the story, which is what they believe sets it apart from most mutant monster movies. The characters really connect, and that’s why they’re so happy to be coming back for a sequel. Whether it’s a standalone film or a weekly series is hard to tell as of yet, but it’s definitely on the radar.

Revisit – or discover – Big Ass Spider! when it comes at ya TODAY!.

Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
