First Batch of Eight-Legged Images from Mike Mendez’s Monster Flick Mega Spider

1 Comment

I hate spiders. I can’t stand the sight of them. If one happens to find its way onto any part of my anatomy, I will have mind-numbingly frightful nightmares for the next several months. My phobia is, to a certain degree, debilitating, not to mention completely pathetic. Strangely, I love watching motion pictures about arachnids. The bigger the spider, the happier I am. “The Convent” director Mike Mendez’s upcoming creature feature “Mega Spider” features an enormous eight-legged monstrosity wreaking havoc on Los Angeles. Not surprisingly, I’m throbbing like an egg sack in anticipation. Fantastic!

This is what the official synopsis has to say about the plot:

A 50-foot tall alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampages the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to a team of scientists, soldiers, and one clever exterminator to kill the creature before the city is destroyed.

“Mega Spider” stars Greg Grunberg, Lombardo Boyar, Clare Kramer, Ray Wise(!), Patrick Bauchau, and Lin Shaye. Like most modern-day independent motion pictures, the upcoming low-budget monster flick has an official Facebook page and a website. And, as always, you are encouraged to have a look at both. The aforementioned images reside below.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)
