Dead Ant: Directed by Ron Carlson. With Tom Arnold, Rhys Coiro, Jake Busey, Leisha Hailey. When the 1989 “one-hit-wonder” glam-metal band “Sonic Grave” embark on a trip to Coachella in hopes of a comeback, their peyote trip pit stop in Joshua Tree incites an “unworldly” viscous attack, and they must “rock” themselves out of harms way.
Opens with a Native American explaining peyote to a white girl, who then totally takes like, a lot? Then totally kills some ants. This is a bad idea, because now there’s a giant ant chasing her and she’s stripping down to nothing, and now she’s running in the nude! This is the best part of the film, and that’s in just the first 10 minutes. I mean, Sydney Sweeny shows up and is in a bikini for the entire movie, and she’s got a hot friend with her, but there’s only so much that can save this low budget fantasy / horror movie that should have been introduced by Elvira. It’s not a terrible film by any means, but is it good? nah.
But it’s good fun though.
