See decent Americans terrorized! Hear teenage girls squeal!
Finland’s Roger! Pictures partnered with US-based legendary game developer Cinemaware to produce a motion picture adaptation of the classic game It Came from the Desert, released back in 1989 for the Amiga. The game, a love letter to ’50s B-movies, centers on giant mutant ants devouring the Earth, which should make for a fun creature feature here in 2017.
In the horror-comedy, giant mutated ants wreak havoc in the New Mexico desert. Raven Banner shared with Bloody Disgusting the full trailer that opens with a hilarious faux PSA about enormous ants before diving into the insane, over-the-top, and wild footage.
“This pulpy, action monster movie is a nostalgic tribute to creature features from the 1950’s; it features rival motocross heroes and heroines, kegger parties in the desert, secret underground military bases, romantic insecurities…and of course giant ants!”
Marko Mäkilaakso (War of the Dead) directed and co-wrote with Hank Woon (Age of Dinosaurs) and Trent Haaga (68 Kill). Roger’s Teemu Virta and Alliance Media Partners (AMP) produced the film with the support of the Finnish Film Foundation. Tero Kaukomaa (Iron Sky 1 & 2) served as executive producer.
