Director Mike Mendez Enters the Giant Bug Genre with Mega Spider

I hate arachnids, but, oddly enough, I love movies about spiders. Go figure. Tossing his demented little hat into the subgenre is director Mike Mendez, the mastermind behind the underrated demonic nun flick “The Convent” and the overrated supernatural thriller “The Gravedancers”. Below you’ll find some nifty artwork for the upcoming production, which is set to begin shooting very shortly.

Even the story sounds like fun:

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, lead 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 home-made 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.
