Good point, urmaniac! Shows the majority of the general audience/movie-going public is not stupid, even when the flick is. A guess... some studios may want to recoup their losses by putting out a low-budget movie in the hope of pulling in quick boxoffice $ - certainly not worthy of Academy consideration IMO. Sadly, the sequels to trash is even more tedious. Don't think we'll ever see them at a Cannes Film Festival or contenders on the Red Carpet

Edited to add: Hitchcock only won an Academy Award for best picture Rebecca - never (if I recall) a directing award. That's shocking!

HA HA, tg. Good one. Never saw them. Might draw a crowd if it was shown with Rocky #17. There's a scary thought!

Must be esp, U, after I typed my response, I read yours I would think Sly's gettin' a little old for those Rockies... maybe couple of those raw egg milkshakes might do it. They could call it "Rocky Road." LOL

I'm "afraid" to ask. Okay, had to look it up:

Marabunta

Year of production: 1998
Running time: 94 Minutes
Rights: All TV and Video
Territories: Selected European, Africa

They were only ants until they became an army. An army of killer ants. Gigantic ants, attracted by the volcanic warmth, emerge from earth every 10 years and then go on deadly killing raids. Two men from an Alaskan town go on a mission to destroy the queen ant.

Starring Eric Lutes, Julia Campbell, Mitch Pileggi, Jeremy Foley. Produced by WIN and Producers Entertainment Group for Fox.

There was one about ants... much newer than that .. it was set in a big hotel and the ants were killing every one... kind of scary for a kid.
