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. Written by

Just want to comment on this movie that I know as "Ants". I think I really only like to watch it and more than once because I grew up near this hotel. Despite the fact that IMDb lists the filming location as Vancouver, British Columbia, this movie was actually filmed in the small town of Qualicum Beach, about 60 miles west of Vancouver. Lakewood Manor is in reality the old Qualicum College, a private residential boys's school, converted around the time of this movie to a hotel called the Qualicum College Inn. The water overlooked by the building is not a lake at all, but rather the Strait of Georgia which separates Vancouver Island from the mainland of British Columbia.
When I was a kid my friends and I would dig in the hard sandy clay just across the street from the college and make quite substantial caves. We were very foolhardy as these could have collapsed at any time, and of course we never realized that there were killer ants down in the ground!
