Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Many worse ways to spend 80 minutes can easily be imagined."
‑ Scott Foundas, Variety
"Greg Grunberg helps keep things light in a Corman-esque monster movie."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"The relative lack of filler is another factor that sets Big Ass Spider! apart from other members of its ilk."
‑ Jim Vorel, Paste Magazine
"It's a lively, slick little film with a clear ambition to revive the thrills and chills of the subgenre, with particular attention to consistency and gaiety."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"...oesn't deserve to be treated as one of those awful, misbegotten projects that can only be enjoyed ironically. It's a genuinely nice little movie and the people involved with it ought to have the opportunity to make more movies."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"With a movie called "Big Ass Spider!" you kind of know what you're in for."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Somehow ... feels like a letdown, in part for its lack of surprise or invention."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Director Mike Mendez brings his homage to those wacky creepy-crawly flicks of yesteryear to life with enough energy for several films."
‑ Steve "Uncle Creepy" Barton, Dread Central
"The most pressing mental involvement that Mike Mendez's silly, scary guilty pleasure requires is - where does one place the inflection?"
‑ Simon Foster, Screen-Space
"Revels in its silliness, and has a good time with its premise, creating a fun monster movie..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Aims for satire and settles for stale shtick."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"The makers of this humorless horror comedy seemed to think that the mere existence of a gigantic, humanity-threatening spider would be enough."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"[Blu-ray Review] No one will be confusing "Big Ass Spider!" for anything more than it is—a silly sci-fi comedy about a giant spider on the loose—and that's okay."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"With a 30-rack of brewskis and some equally demented friends, Big Ass Spider could be one rockin' midnight movie experience worth a good laugh."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
""Big Ass Spider!" has a big ass problem: It thinks you're better than the material."
‑ Odie Henderson,
