Ants eat Suzanne Somers!
11 March 1999 | by (Phoenix AZ) – See all my reviews

This "television event" came out when bug movies were the vogue (yeah, that lasted about 15 minutes). I saw this when I was 8 years old, and, yes, back then it was creepy. A resort is overrun by evil ants that really don't like us humans too well. They proceed to blanket the resort and kill off many guests. A nude sleeping Suzanne Somers even gets it! The ants looked more like rice painted black, ultra campy. If you like old '70's disaster and/or bug films, it won't top your list...
