NEW YORK - September 22, 2014 - Giant lava breathing tarantulas - Lavalantulas - erupt out of ancient volcanos 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.

Lavalantula will be directed by Mike Mendez, who won a Saturn Award for helming Big Ass Spiders.
