"The Hive" Starring Tom Wopat-World Premiering This Month on VOD

So I got this email from someone named Erica telling me about this new movie coming out on VOD called "The Hive." She seems to work for RHI Entertainment. I can't actually watch this movie as I don't even have basic cable, but it does sound like a lot of fun:
The Hive is a horror-thriller that features a mass of 200 flesh-eating army ants making its way through the jungles of Brazil devouring every living thing in its path. Called in to stave off the attack is Horace Lennart, a scientist from Thorax Industries extermination service in Los Angeles, and his girlfriend, entomologist Claire Dubois. But when they discover the bizarre intention and origins of the crawling creatures, they fear for the future of the planet.
I went to IMDB and found this user comment on the movie from someone named david, from glasgow, scotland.
For me, if you start with a premise of killer ants you cant go far wrong but throw in aliens, babies being eaten, dialogue like "im not here to have a conversation with an ant" and you're moving into true cult status.
Add to the mix ants who form themselves into fists and knock over trees and how good does this film sound? And you haven't even seen the cool weapon the good guys have!
You could argue that its not the best acted movie in the world but I don't think awards ceremonious were on anyone's mind when storyboarding this one.
If you think say "the swarm" is a poor movie then this maybe isn't one for you but if you've ever lay awake at night wondering how ants would build a computer then this is the only place i know where you might just find out!
Like I said, sounds like fun. If anyone sees it, let me know how it is.


  1. How about The Final Destination movie?

    I haven't seen it.

  2. How about the Destination: Infested movie? It's basically "Ants on a Plane". :)

  3. The Hive is on Sky One in the UK on 11th May, 2008.
