TONIGHT at 10: EMPIRE OF THE ANTS

Published by at 14:01 under Filmreakter,Screening Room

Filmreakter’s Cinélunatique presents “EMPIRE OF THE ANTS”

Saturday 19.05.2012 / 22h00
USA 1977 / Original version with french subtitles / 89’ / color / Directed by Bert I. Gordon / Starring: Joan Collins, Robert Lansing, John David Carson / Based on H.G. Wells short story

Our trash offering of the month! « It’s no picnic » wrote The New York Times about this über-schlock extravaganza from Nature’s revenge specialist Bert I. Gordon. The story is highly complex, but we will try to summarize it for you nevertheless: ants eat radioactive waste on a Florida beach, they grow into huge ant-beasts and attack Joan Collins and a bunch of other people. The effects are a stroke of genius, like just about any other element of this mastercheese of a film. If you have a taste for trash, you’ll find this very nourishing indeed.
