It Came from the Desert

Ottawa Premiere on May 16th, encore screening on May 17th!

A pulpy, action monster movie, inspired by Cinemaware’s cult classic 1980’s video game. A nostalgic tribute to drive-in creature features from the 1950’s, It Came From The Desert features rival motocross heroes and heroines, kegger parties in the desert, secret underground military bases, romantic insecurities…and of course giant ants!

“get ready for the pulp action horror mutant monster movie of the year!…Smartly scripted, extremely funny and very creepy, with terrific special effects in homage to Ray Harryhausen” (Fright Fest London)

“delivering a seriously entertaining, low-rent fireworks display of a modern monster movie…Monumentally bananas…this is how low-fi B-movie throwbacks should be.” 4 Stars! (HeyUGuys)
