Movie Info

Michael grew up in a college town with daydreams of being a member of the football team that he would watch doing drills -- an accomplishment that would make his military family proud. When the day comes that Michael actually enters college, however, he finds that living up to his father's expectations is not so easy; he rarely makes it off the bench and is hardly the football player he'd once dreamed of being. Then me meets Brenda, a girl that appreciates him for who he is, whether or not he's a star athlete. Now, for the first time, Michael is pondering whose dream it is that he's been chasing.

A nice tale of vengeance with some primo acting.

Cinema Crazed

Darker than pitch and unusually effective in showcasing the brutality and ugliness of murder.

Apesar da abordagem incorreta de Gordon (que pensa estar dirigindo um terror), o filme se beneficia do interessante roteiro e das ótimas atuações de McKenna, Baldwin e Wendt.

Audience Reviews for King Of The Ants


forgive its low budget feel and some weak acting and focus on the strong story in this lesser known thriller. This movie gets fairly dark and that blackness is lead uncharacteristically of George Wendt of all people. Wendt playing very against type and his large size is turned from something lovable into something intimidating. There something about this plot that just keeps you engaged, and it does in enough unique ways to make it stand out. Full disclosure: I have been a longtime fan of Kari Wuher and shes topless in this so that was a huge deal for me.

King of the Ants is a disturbing and violent tale of the dark side of humanity and betrayal. It is brutal and dehumanizing, I don't really understand why Stuart Gordon decided to make this film but he didn't make it right for sure. Part torture porn, part revenge thriller, King of the Ants lived up to it's title and managed to shock it's viewers.

From Stuart Gordon we get another gem. The back made it look like some kind of monster flick, but it was just a still from a dream sequence, which was a little disappointing. Still, pretty messed up, and the guys face after being beaten with golf clubs for weeks is really nasty/awesome. Plus, who doesn't want to see the fat guy from Cheers get his head cut off?
