best to find it on the double feature dvd with tentacles. the original mgm 2001 midnight movies release is very hard to find.

"Empire Of The Ants"......One of my alltime guilty pleasures. Growing up I used to watch this movie late at night on the weekends. Such classic 1977 sci fi cheese!! I love it!! Joan Collins is a hoot to watch. So campy. Robert Lansing as "Dan" was great. Very good actor. Pamela Susan Shoop from "Halloween 2" is in here. She was "ok". Handsome John David Carson as "Joe" was fine in his role. I found that the men were better than the women in this movie. Cheesy special effects,great cinematography,some thrills and chills, and some over the top moments highlight the movie. Good campy fun!!

5/10

i just watched both of these over the past few days, good fun. i vastly prefer empire of the ants. the setting is just beautiful, and tension is built nicely, something i always enjoy in nature run amok movies. and as far as bert i. gordons two big movies of the seventies go, i quite prefer the visual effects in empire of those of food of the gods (which are still fun). the giant ants look great, and the model ants used for close-up slashing are cut in at sjust the right quickness. the cast is excellent, with each cast member making their character important to the proceedings.

but what makes empire of the ants really great is the whole mind-control angle. that was inspired. giant ants have been done, definitively in them; bert i. gordon wasn't gonna make a movie as good as them. so what does the genius schlockmeister do? he adds mind control, giving the ants an intelligence that sets empire of the ants apart from other ant flicks.

good times...

"Empire Of The Ants"......One of my alltime guilty pleasures. It's a fun latenight watch and such classic 1977 sci fi cheese!! I love it!! Joan Collins is a hoot to watch and her character/performance is dramatic, over the top, and campy. Robert Lansing as "Dan" is great. Very good actor. Pamela Susan Shoop from "Halloween 2"(Karen) is in here and she is "ok" in her role. The handsome John David Carson as "Joe" is good and the guy who plays "Larry" is good at playing a sleazeball. I found that the men were better than the women in this movie. Cheesy special effects, great cinematography, some thrills and chills, and over the top moments highlight the movie. It's good campy fun!!
