MOVIE POSTER - Joan Collins is the star in this feature film directed by Bert Gordon. The poster depicts the scenes that the makers were aiming for, but could not attain with the technology and budget of that time.
Empire of the Ants is a 1977 science fiction horror film co-scripted and directed by Bert I. Gordon. Based very loosely on the short story Empire of the Ants by H.G. Wells, the film involves a group of prospective land buyers led by a land developer, pitted against giant, mutated ants.
JOAN COLLINS - Toxic waste has made ordinary ants grow to a huge size so that they can become the masters of the prospective land developers.
ISLAND SCENE - The idea was great, but could not be made to work well using real ants superimposed on other real scenes, were the focus and scale kept changing to destroy the dramatic effect that the audience were hoping for.
