I suppose if you’ve found yourself at this website, it’s probably because you are dealing with some sort of ant problem. Well, count yourself lucky, at least you’re not involved with some sleazy real-estate developer in the Florida everglades!
Empire of the Ants with Joan Collins and Robert Lansing may not be theee perfect movie for ant-phobes, but it IS totally creepy and fun (particularly if you have a secret crush on Joan Collins).
The movie was very loosely based on the short story Empire of the Ants by H. G. Wells.
- FYI, as a promotional gimmick for the film, theaters would display ant farms in their lobbies – though they weren’t allowed near the concession counters.
- FYI-2, the director created some of the special ant-effects by shooting magnified images of the Panamanian bullet ant.
Here’s the trailer. For they shall inherit the earth… sooner than you think!
