Remember the Amiga game It Came from the Desert, released back in 1989? Cinemaware’s action-adventure game, inspired by ’50s creature features and centered on giant mutant ants devouring the Earth, has received its own feature film adaptation courtesy of Finland’s Roger! Pictures, and the adaptation is arriving this month.
It Came from the Desert will be crawling onto Digital and On Demand on May 29. While you wait, venture into the nest with this Bloody Disgusting Exclusive clip!
In the horror-comedy, giant mutated ants wreak havoc in the New Mexico desert…
“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.
