Greetings, Diabolique Readers!

It was a very busy week indeed for the world of horror and entertainment with the past 96 hours of New York Comic Con, undoubtedly the biggest media event on the East Coast.

Directly after speaking with stars Greg Grunberg and Lombardo Boyar, Diabolique had the chance to pick the brain of Big Ass Spider director Mike Mendez. The film is grounded in comedy much more than Mendez’s previous work, and his ability to establish this hilarious and yet thrilling world of alien spiders, rogue exterminators and shadowy government science is incredibly impressive in its own right.
