The holidays are past, but that doesn’t mean we at CHUD are done giving things away!

unnamedWe’re happy to partner with Epic Picture Group to outfit a lucky chewer with a Blu-ray copy of Big Ass Spider, along with a poster and a t-shirt. (You can also buy the disc from CHUD if you’re too eager for arachnid action to wait on a contest)

You have to hand it to a film that states itself so plainly in its title. We live in an age of Sharknadoes and other twisted creature features, so something that takes it back to a plain old big-ass monster has an immediate charm. Check out the trailer:

If you’d like to throw your name in the hat for the prizes, simply shoot me an email here (my name at google’s email service) and ensure the subject line stays “BigAssGiveaway.”

Remember to include your name and physical address, so we know where to send the goods!




Available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital on Jan. 7, 2014

“Hilarious and wildly entertaining.” –

Hollywood, Calif. – Epic Pictures Group announces the home video release of Big Ass Spider! through their U.S. distribution arm, Epic Releasing, on January 7, 2014. The film stars Greg Grunberg (TV’s Heroes, TV’s Alias, Mission Impossible: III), Lombardo Boyar (Group Sex, Happy Feet I and II), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class, TV’s Twin Peaks) and is directed by Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers).

Big Ass Spider! will be available on Blu-ray for an SRP of $19.99 and DVD for an SRP of $14.99.

In this ‘Shaun of The Dead’ meets ‘Tremors’ horror-monster-comedy, a failed military experiment results in a 100-foot giant spider rampaging across the city of Los Angeles. When everything else fails, a military unit (RAY WISE and CLARE KRAMER) enlists the help of a clever exterminator (GREG GRUNBERG) and his Hispanic security guard sidekick (LOMBARDO BOYAR) to kill the creature before the entire city is destroyed.

This homage to the monster movies of yesteryears includes cameos by Lin Shaye (Insidious, Insidious 2, There Is Something About Marry), B-Movie legend Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman and Fangoria’s creator Kerry O’Quinn.

Special features include interviews with the cast, international trailer, TV spots, theatrical trailer, SXSW featurette and “Stars Greg Grunberg and Lombardo Boyar Tell Director Mike Mendez How They Really Feel About Him.”

Big Ass Spider! first premiered theatrically and on premium VOD on October 18th.
The film also played at numerous festivals including its debut at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, where it screened to packed audiences.

Upcoming Epic DVD and Blu-ray releases include the action film, Vikingdom, starring Dominic Purcell, which will hit stores on January 21st and the supernatural thriller, I Will Follow You Into The Dark, starring Mischa Barton, which will be available on January 28th.
