LAVALANTULA is one of the better monster flicks put out by the SyFy Channel. It's not great, and it's frequently stupid, but I preferred it to most of the SHARKNADO franchise, and it has an absolutely ton of action and effects to keep you watching. The nonsense storyline involves eruptions of lava bringing giant, flame-spewing spiders with them, and the only man to stop the invasion is a washed-up film actor. Said star is none other than a barely recognisable Steve Guttenberg, giving the usual tongue in cheek performance and teaming up with cameoing POLICE ACADEMY stars Michael Winslow and Marion Ramsey at one point. The CGI effects are better than expected and a lot of the action scenes are fun, although cheesy. Co-star Nia Peeples is required to do little more than show off her cleavage in every single scene she appears in, but it's Guttenberg's low-rent action man heroics that see this one through.
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?
