An old-fashioned, lakeside hotel targeted for purchase by an unsavory gambling casino promoter and situated next to a construction site, is attacked by an army of poisonous ants. Efforts to contain the ants and rescue those trapped in the hotel are hampered by the progress of the creepy crawlers upward from floor to floor.

  1. Hello from Marshville... read a novel called "Ants" and "Empire of the Ants" came out (read the Novelization of that one back in 77') ... not familiar with this film, good Sir...

  2. Looking forward to it! Last time I saw this one I was a kid, I think.
