Giant Ants Attack in Video Game Adaptation ‘It Came from the Desert’ Trailer

Rampage has only just started shooting, but already there’s a project aiming far beneath that film’s seemingly-low bar for giant animal video game adaptations. Have a look with the first trailer for It Came from the Desert, a horror-comedy based on the 1989 video game of the same name. The original game was already a spoof of ’50s films—Them! in particular, it would seem, based on all the giant ants—so this will actually be a parody movie based on a video game parodying a movie. How far we’ve come, Society.

    I remember playing this back in the day and it was a great throwback to 50’s Atomic Age monster movies, what with the army attacking and the winking tone and the desert community turning into ant-people. This does not look good as either an adaptation or a low budget horror monster movie.
    I mean, I don’t expect much fidelity to a cult PC game but they couldn’t throw in a sexy nurse?
