Lavalantula (2015) Plot & Synopsis


Starring Leigh Whannell, Ruben Pla, Noel Jason Scott, Nick Principe, Ralph Garman

Directed by Mike Mendez

Mike Mendez continues his crazy spider movie theme with Lavalantula (2015). Mike Mendez recently did Big Ass Spider (2013) with past films/work including The Gravedancers (2006), Masters of Horror (2002), and The Convent (2000). This movie is a Syfy TV movie that features lava-breathing tarantulas. The film premiered on Syfy on July 25, 2015, but I have yet to see it, not sure if I ever will. Steve Guttenberg, Nia Peeples, and Patrick Renna star in Lavalantula (2015).

Synopsis: With the old days of glamour long forgotten, Colton West, the once popular movie star and action hero from the 90s, is now reduced to acting in low-budget movies about horrific bugs. But when suddenly, a swarm of earthquakes hits Southern California, a string of unprecedented events, chaos and lava will give birth to a new breed of lava-breathing arachnids, forcing Colton to find his family before it's too late. Once more, this intrepid man of action will have to do what he knows best, armed only with a shotgun and the will to survive. However, what can a single man do against an endless army of monstrous Lavalantula's?

Tagline: Fire Burns... Lava Bites!

Storyline: Volcanic eruptions in Los Angeles unleash a swarm of gigantic, lava-breathing tarantulas.
