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.

Appearance

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.

Powers and Abilities

The Lavalantulas possess the following powers and abilities:

  • Fire breath
  • Fangs
  • Wallcrawling
  • Webbing
  • Hive mind telepathy
  • Fire resistance

Fate

The Lavalantulas die after the queen is killed with a liquid nitrogen bomb, their shared hive mind killing all of the soldier spiders immediately afterward in her absence.

Trivia

  • The Lavalantulas have an almost identical backstory as the Arachnoquake Spiders.
