Description from the packaging.

A crawling terror whose towering fury no one can escape. A new dimension in terror that will have you screaming for mercy. Ants, twenty feet tall, go marching one by one, using your home town as a human picnic basket!

Panic grips the city as these monster-sized mutations strike terror again... and again... and again!

Witness science fiction become fact as the unimaginable becomes real... the impossible becomes true!

You'll marvel as the screen explodes with action so real you can feel the desert wind chap your parched lips. Sound effects so eerie you can hear the distant marching of giant harvester ants on the prowl!

Human drama abounds- blackmailing rivals, land scams, love triangles and desert cults!
