New Orleans survived the worst hurricane of a generation, but can it survive an Arachnoquake? Not just an earthquake… an earthquake that unleashes giant albino spiders from deep within the bowels of the earth. Can Carol Seaver, John Connor, and Alfalfa save the Big Easy from an earth-rattling, eight-legged apocalypse?
Syfy sent out a press release Tuesday regarding the just-wrapped production Arachonoquake starring Tracey Gold, formerly of “Growing Pains”, currently on “Starving Secrets with Tracey Gold”, and soon to be seen on the new season of “Celebrity Wife Swap”, and Edward Furlong of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Pet Sematary 2 fame.
Ethan Philips (Neelix on “Star Trek: Voyager”) and Bug Hall round out the cast. The press release bills actor Bug Hall as one of the stars of The Little Rascals. If you’re like me, your first reaction to that would be, “Aren’t they all dead?” I was curious as to how old this guy had to be so I looked him up on IMDB and found out he played “Alfalfa” in the 1994 big screen version of The Little Rascals. Again, if you’re like me, you probably have no recollection of that movie even existing.
Actor-director Griff Furst continues his cinematic quest to kill every last person in the state of Louisiana by way of mutant living monstrosity as he follows up his highly-rated Cajun country Syfy flick Swamp Shark by directing this New Orleans-based creature feature disaster flick for Active Entertainment.
In Arachnoquake massive earthquakes unleash giant albino spiders. Freed from their ancient subterranean prison, the spiders go on a murderous rampage through New Orleans.
As a fellow Southerner quite familiar with the city of New Orleans, I honestly have to question just how big a threat this would pose in real life. They’d be tossing those albinos spiders into pots of boiling water sprinkled with paprika and cayenne pepper and serving them up on po’boy bread within hours. Crabs, crawfish, albino spiders from the center of the earth – it’s all the same to them. Pinch the tail and suck the head. That’s how they roll.
Be on the lookout for Arachnoquake on Syfy sometime in 2012.
