If you find yourself at this website, it’s probably because you’re dealing with some sort of ant problem. Well, count yourself lucky, at least you’re not dealing with some sleazy real-estate developer in the Florida everglades and giant ants!
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!
