We're experiencing something of a giant monster revival in popular culture. On the small screen, giant monsters are all the rage, with WTF-worthy concoctions like "Sharknado" and "Ghost Shark" becoming ratings sensations thanks to ingeniously cheesy visual effects and stunt casting, while on the big screen there are things like Guillermo del Toro's recent "Pacific Rim," a kind of endless smorgasbord of giant monster fun (not to be outdone, there will be a "Godzilla" reboot next summer). And somewhere in the middle is "Big Ass Spider," a movie that cheekily tries to straddle the line between SyFy Channel original film and big screen extravaganza. It's the kind of movie you wish they still had drive-ins for.
