“BIG ASS SPIDER” and more invade Boston fest


A giant arachnid is marching toward Massachusetts as part of the second round of titles announced for the Boston Underground Film Festival.

Among the movies joining those already slated (see item here) for the fest, which runs Wednesday-Sunday, March 27-31 at the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA, is the tongue-in-cheek big-bug epic BIG ASS SPIDER (pictured above), fresh from its world premiere at this month’s SXSW. Accompanying this closing-night screening will be director Mike Mendez (of THE CONVENT and THE GRAVEDANCERS, who discussed SPIDER here), and producer Travis Stevens, also repped at BUFF by E.L. Katz’s CHEAP THRILLS.

Also added to the BUFF lineup are Chad Crawford Kinkle’s rural shocker JUG FACE (see story here), with Kinkle and producer Andrew van den Houten on hand for this East Coast premiere; GUILTY OF ROMANCE, an eerie thriller from SUICIDE CLUB, EXTE: HAIR EXTENSIONS and COLD FISH director Sion Sono; THE RAMBLER, an exercise in comic brutality from THE OREGONIAN director and V/H/S co-star Calvin Reeder, also making its East Coast premiere; and the New England premiere of MONDOMANILA, a crazy horror/musical/experimental mashup from filmmaker/singer/songwriter KHAVN. The bumper for this year’s fest can be seen below, and the fest’s official website can be found here.
