Movie Info

Based on a story by H.G. Wells, this unintentionally funny sci-fi horror thriller centers on the travails of foolish property buyers who unwittingly purchase land that is dangerously close to a nuclear waste dump. Due to a radiation leak, the ants there have mutated into voracious giants and are looking for food.

Audience Reviews for Empire of the Ants

The audio in Empire of the Ants is infuriating to the point of being nigh unwatchable. But on mute? By jingo you might just be onto something there.

Very poorly made, obvious allusions to Jaws, and a cast of unlikable characters. This is a really silly one that gets on your nerves a lot of the time because of the sound the creatures. There are some parts of it that make you laugh out loud with its awfulness, but that doesn't make this one a must-see, craptastic movie.

Did we really need another giant ant movie? I don't think so, skip this movie and see Them instead. This one isn't too terrible, but it's not good either.

To say that this is a cheap production would be an insult to cheap productions. It's not funny-bad or campy-bad, it's just plain bad-bad. Watch it if you must but be prepared for a healthy dose of "I told you so".
