Choice Cuts 42: Hanging With MegaSpider’s Mike Mendez

We are back with our 42nd episode of Choice Cuts, this time speaking with director Mike Mendez.  This maniac dished out The Convent, starring Adrienne Barbeau, and set a few nuns on fire.  Later, he went on to helm The Gravedancers, an After Dark Films release.  Currently, he’s in post-production on MegaSpider, which finds Heroes’ Greg Grunberg taking on a monstrous menace in Los Angeles.  Click on the player below to hear about the film and more!


In the upcoming MegaSpider, a horrible alien mutation in arachnid form is 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.
