It stars Greg Grunberg (Heroes, Star Trek), Lombardo Boyar (24, Gone in 60 Seconds) and Ray Wise (Robocop, Reaper). It is the ultimate B-Movie experience – hilarious, disaster-filled and action-packed! THE APPARITION stars Ashley Greene (Twilight), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter). It is the ultimate supernatural thriller title – full of horrifying and twisted scenes that feed on fear itself. Both films are out on DVD and Blu-ray on 23rd December.

To celebrate these releases, we are giving away to 2 lucky winners a copy of each title.

In Big Ass Spider! a 50-foot-tall alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampages the city of Los Angeles, forcing the people to turn to an unlikely hero: bug exterminator Alex (Grunberg) and his Mexican security guard sidekick Jose (Boyar).

In The Apparition, a group of students attempt to create a supernatural entity, but the experiment goes horribly wrong. Years later, young couple Kelly (Greene) and Ben (Stan) begin to experience a terrifying, unexplained presence in their new home…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
