[TRAILER TRASH] IT’S SPRING! WATCH OUT FOR GIANT BUGS!

Empire of the Ants

 

Spring is upon us, and so are those six or eight legged little freaks that invade our households once the flowers start to bloom. Every year around this time, my kitchen is flooded with thieving sugar ants that seem to feel my counters are a great place for socializing. Panic stricken, I usually throw on a giant bug movie from the past to gather ideas on how to combat these little beasties. And while taking a flamethrower to my kitchen seemed fun at the time, I’ve learned that giant bug movies are best for viewing, not for educational purposes.

 


So for your viewing pleasure, I’ve put together a string of twenty-one classic giant bug flick trailers to help celebrate these early days of spring and put some ideas in your head for that giant bug movie marathon you’ve been itching to throw together. Enjoy!
