Trailer for feature film It Came From The Desert.
A pulpy, action monster movie, inspired by Cinemaware’s cult 1980s videogame It Came from the Desert. A nostalgic tribute to creature features from the 1950s, 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! Finland’s Roger! Pictures partnered with US-based legendary game developer Cinemaware to produce a motion picture adaptation of the classic 1980s game.

"Camp, cheesy and oddly charming, It Came From the Desert is a rare modern b-movie that is an absolute viewing pleasure. It’s such an entertaining watch that it should be watched with as big an audience as possible for maximum fun." thehollywoodnews.com
"Independent films are often hit or miss affairs, but when they hit, they hit hard. It Came from the Desert is a home run." theslaughteredbird.com
