Here are the five things you need to know about Syfy’s new creature feature Lavalantula, which airs Saturday, July 25 at 9pm, following an encore showing of Sharknado 3.

1.) It features Police Academy franchise stars Steve Guttenberg, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, and Marion Ramsey. And we’re tempted to stop right there, because, really, what else do you need to know?

2.) It is directed by Mike Mendez, whose last film, Big Ass Spider!, is not just a cut above the average big-critter movie but is actually more fun than a barrel of monkeys or, for that matter, outsized arachnids.

3.) It’s about giant fire-breathing spiders.

4.) Giant. Fire-breathing. Spiders.

5.) You can see an exclusive clip below. Enjoy!
