Lavalantula (2015)

It being promoted  on home video as coming from the network that brought you SHARKNADO- which kind of tells you everything you need to know.

The plot of the film has an earthquake ripping open the earth in Los Angeles and spewing out lava and giant fire breathing spiders. The only one who can save everyone is Colton West played by Steve Guttenberg, a washed up actor trying to make a come back.

Stupid as a stick film on it's own terms this is the sort of thing that needs to be viewed with friends and drinks. Mercifully the film starts off about five minutes in and just goes. On the plus side the film makes more sense than SHARKNADO 2 and 3. The problem is the film makes more sense than SHARKNADO 2 and 3 so it can be a little draggy because the film actually has a plot. On the other hand this was never meant to be high art.

Watching the film on DVD I had a good time, I only wish I had been watching it with friends and drinks.

Worth a look see if you like low brow tongue in cheek horror.

The film hits home video and VOD Tuesday.
