Plot:

When an unprecedented amount of sinkholes erupt all over Florida, a new nest of fire spitting lavalantulas is awakened… wreaking their fiery havoc all over the sunshine state. Adding to the mayhem, the arachnids have hit the beach where Colton West’s step-daughter, Raya, is taking a break from school.

Now an A-list movie star, Colton walks off the set of his latest hundred million dollar blockbuster to save her. Armed with specialized weapons, Colton, his personal assistant, Kyle, and his best friend, Marty, race to save the residents of Florida from these hellish prehistoric beasts and taking on the biggest, baddest one of them all — gargantulantula!

Reviews:

“Much like its predecessor, 2 Lava 2 Lantula feels like an 80-minute Funny-or-Die sketch mocking Sharknado, with all groaners, all the time. There is enough cheese in this movie to clog every last artery in your body—and the filmmakers, cast, and effects crew cram it down your facehole with a glee that is way more disturbing than anything in the film’s CGI arsenal.” Shawn Macomber, Fangoria

“Overall,2 Lava 2 Lantula, was an incredibly fun romp through the sweltering everglades. The acting, though to some may not be grade A, was playful and engaging, and the story was consistent.  Sure, the spiders and the lava look like they were pasted into the film from a 10 year old, but fans of SyFy should not be surprised by that – it’s part of the appeal.” Shannon McGrew, Nightmarish Conjurings

“The script is wise enough to have one character acknowledge what some viewers might be thinking by saying at one point, “The fire, the computer-generated crap — that just looked silly.” It moves well — the lavalantulas are on the attack and the heroes are arming up against them within the first 10 minutes — the actors are in the right spirit and there’s an occasional genuinely funny line…” Michael Gingold, Rue Morgue

“This film is a straight up comedy and its intentions show by delivering a funny and gag ridden film. There are so many references and in jokes that a drinking game is in order. Hell, there is a joke in the title. The nostalgia of the film draws from both horror and action movies of the past and creates more nostalgic fun than Stranger Things.” Sinful Celluloid

  1. After Sharknado and all the rest of those hybrid monster movies, this should be fun too.
