The Lavalantulas are the main antagonists of the 2015 American horror film Lavalantula and its 2016 sequel, 2 Lava 2 Lantula.
A series of volcanic eruptions near Los Angeles opened cracks in the ground, allowing a species of subterranean, fire-breathing spiders to emerge and cause havoc.
Lavalantulas are large tarantulas of varying sizes. They possess black exoskeletons with sporadic orange highlights, giving off a charred look. They have red eyes and spikes covering their abdomens and legs.
