Just when you thought Syfy couldn't top Sharknado, along comes Lavalantula.
The channel's next film will include fire-breathing tarantulas (lavalantulas) and a reunion of the Police Academy cast.
Lavalantula, directed by Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), is currently in production in Los Angeles.
The film will premiere in summer 2015.
Watch the trailer for Syfy's Sharknado below: »
Giant lava breathing tarantulas – Lavalantulas – erupt out of ancient volcanos in the Santa Monica Mountains, raining death and destruction upon Los Angeles, in the just-announced Syfy Original Movie Lavalantula, premiering in Summer 2015. Who will save us from the terrifying and deadly spider invasion? How about Steve Guttenberg and his cast-mates from Police Academy?
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) and is directed by Mike Mendez, who won a Saturn Award for helming another giant-creature feature, Big Ass Spiders. »
