It Came From the Desert (Movie Review)

Cinemaware turned to 1950s monster movies for inspiration when developing a 1989 computer game about giant ants attacking small town America. Now It Came From The Desert comes full circle as a 2018 feature film!  An arrogant motocross racer and his shy mechanic must stop genetically modified insects from feasting on friends attending their victory kegger.  But have these fanboys seen too many B-flicks to make an original mark on the genre? Listen now to find out if Arnie, Justin, and Stuart must burn down another freak game-adaptation-gone-wrong.

Listen now!
