Coming to Syfy Saturday (April 19): It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a “Big Ass Spider!”

Check out this trailer for the latest Syfy monster movie — though this is not a Syfy original like “Sharknado,” it’s merely making its debut on the channel. In “Big Ass Spider!”, (according to the official description), “a hotshot exterminator (Greg Grunberg) joins forces with the
military to squash a giant arachnid that’s spinning a web of destruction
around Los Angeles.

First of all, we did not know there were such things as “hotshot” exterminators. How sad if you’re just normal, boring exterminator, right?

Secondly, the above preview is positively amazing. Fingers crossed the two-minute trailer hasn’t just shown us all the good parts.

“Big Ass Spider!” premieres Saturday, April 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
