What has eight legs and breathes fire? Whatever it is, please keep it far the hell away from me as I don’t need that kind of shit in my life! What I do need, however, is a new flick from Mike Mendez, and if it stars a hellish beast like the one I just described, then I’m okay with that too!
From the Press Release
Giant lava-breathing tarantulas – Lavalantulas – erupt out of ancient volcanoes in the Santa Monica Mountains, raining death and destruction upon Los Angeles, in the new Syfy Original Movie Lavalantula, premiering in summer 2015.
With the City of Angels on the verge of incineration, only a washed up ‘90s action hero actor, played by Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy, Diner) — joined by Police Academy alumni Leslie Easterbrook (Police Academy) and Michael Winslow (Police Academy: The Series) — stand in the way of this monstrous swarm of bloodthirsty creatures who burn their victims alive.
Currently in production in Los Angeles, Lavalantula also co-stars Nia Peeples (“The Young and the Restless”) and Ralph Garman (KROQ/LA DJ).
Lavalantula will be directed by Mike Mendez, who won a Saturn Award for helming Big Ass Spider!
Look for more on this feature showcasing fire-breathing tarantulas as soon as we get it!
