A couple of months back SyFy channel gave us a double whammy of strange monster mayhem. The first was Sharknado 3, an institution, one of the great American traditions (however new). The second was a new piece of CGI filled monsterific goodness starring the former cast of the Police Academy movies. Lavalantula was a fun, action packed, humor crusted flick that was perfect popcorn fodder with plenty of familiar faces to get the nostalgia juices flowing and a novel concept that worked in a completely over the top manner.
Now you'll have the chance to bring it into your home on DVD November 3rd. With a sequel supposedly in the works, you'll want to enjoy the first one to see just how gonzo the second one is in comparison.
After a dormant volcano erupts miles outside of Los Angeles, something within the molten hot lava is awakened. Birthed from the bowels of the Earth itself, arachnid-like creatures with an obsidian-black exoskeleton swarm out. One man, Colton West, a washed-up, former A-list action star, suddenly finds himself the real life hero as he’s forced to use his on screen characters’ know-how to save the entire city from being victims to the most horrifying villains you couldn’t write any better.
