Sheep Movie Review: Dead Ant (2017) - Another Hole in the Head Film Festival

I love the Another Hole in the Head Festival in San Fransisco.  If I lived nearby I would attend it so hard! But I get the next best thing. Every year we get the opportunity to screen some of the movies featured there. There are soooo many to choose from and I only have time to review a couple. Last year I watched more scary movies. This year I went for the horror/comedies. Check out my review of Dead Ant below, and keep an eye out for my review of G-Men From Hell as well as a bunch of shorts.

Dead Ant (2017)
October 10, 2017
Director: Ron Carlson
Writers: Hank Braxtan (story), Ron Carlson (screenplay)
Stars: Tom Arnold, Sean Astin, Martin Blasick, Jake Busey, Michael Horse
1h 27min
When the 1989 "one-hit-wonder" glam-metal band "Sonic Grave" embark on a trip to Coachella in hopes of a comeback, their peyote trip pit stop in Joshua Tree incites an "unworldly" vicious attack, and they must "rock" themselves out of harm's way.

I haven't had that much fun watching a B-movie in a while. If you love those monster insect movies, 80s glam rock-n-roll and a little gory fun then you got to see this one. The soundtrack isn't the only thing rocking in this movie...the script is hilarious and damn good. And there are real actors in this one...unlike some SyFy B-movies where I swear the director let their girlfriend/boyfriend and family members join the cast.
The best part of Dead Ant is the last hour. That's when the ants show up kicking a$$ and taking...limbs. The first part when we meet all the characters is kind of slow, but stick with it! I promise it will be worth it.

  1. LOL! I remember watching a ton of B movies back in the day, but haven't seen one in years. Glad you enjoyed this one! Hugs...RO

    1. B-movies are like a box of never know what you're going to get! If you get a chance to see this! *tackle hug*
