Storyline

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? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Goofs

During one of the news scenes detailing the bus explosion, they show fire trucks in front of a multi-story building. This scene appears to be from an east-coast city such as New York, based on the trees and lack of foliage. See more »

Quotes

Doris: You okay?
Olivia West: I don't know. Colton was just here, and he was ranting about some kind of a disaster, and it actually shook me up a little.
Doris: Earthquakes, fires, rolling blackouts, mudslides, the Governator. We're Californians. We've been through worse.
Olivia West: Yeah, I guess.

So you know when somethings so bad it actually starts being great fun. Well Lavalatua is that flick. A B movie that pretends to be nothing more. The great Steve Guttenburg and cast of police academy sending themselves up perfectly against an army of lava filled cgi tarantulas that are scary and funny in equal measure.

So get the popcorn out and enjoy this daft but enjoyable little gem - not everything has to be Shakespeare.

i hope we'll see more of Steve Guttenburg i always wondered about what happened to him after police academy

Christian hope you like it
