Today's gem is Empire of the Ants- 1977 movie, loosely based on the 1905 short story The Empire of the Ants written by H.G. Wells. Staring Joan Collins (Dynasty, Tales from the Crypt), Robert Pine (CHiPs, Red Eye), Pamela Susan Shoop (Galactica, Halloween II), and Edward Power (One Life to Live, The Incredible Hulk)---- among others, it takes us to the Florida everglades where Joan Collins- Marilyn Fryser- is a sleazy scam artist trying to sell real estate to her unsuspecting victims. Oh the everglades- don't have to guess how that's going to turn out. Not well. Not well at all. *Evil laugh* And don't let the queen spray you!

Other movies involving malicious ants out to destroy humanity.

                                                          By M.A. Kastle


It weaves through his decaying flesh, forever tightening its talons on his stagnant heart. Its force, a kind of poison courses through his spoiled veins, keeping his body alive, and his soul suspended between the underworld of the dead and the world of the living. Ribbons of weakness wrap around his will and demand he give up and die. He won’t. He remains alive feeding on the desire of revenge. The dark and deadly visions entertain him, and keep his ancient mind from eating the slivers of madness.
