More than 50 years after the first attack of the giant ants, a group of archaeologists stumble upon a colony of frozen giant ant larvae. Unknowingly they thaw out the larvae and unleash colonies of giant ants in the cities of America.
Synopsis:In Northern Montana, a group of archaeologists searching for dinosaur bones come across strange pods, about two feet high and buried in the ice. Frank, the leader of the team, has them removed from the icy cavern and decides to thaw them out. He sends a photo of the pods to his friend Peter. Before Peter gets the photo, the pods have thawed out and revived the giant ants. The ants wreck havoc on the camp, killing everybody there with the exception of Henry who dies shortly from his injuries after explaining what happened to Peter. As Peter and Sheryl (another archaeologist) Flee the area before the ants can get them.
Peter and Sheryl try warning the U.S. Government. The government officials do not believe them. Until the second attack. The ants are now fully grown (15 to 20 feet long) and swarm a small town in the Mid-West. The Sheriff is able to get threw to the army just before being killed by a giant ant.
General Ellis is the Army's top ranking general and assigned to destroy the giant ants. He decides to obliterate the town and all it's survivors. Everyone believes they are safe.
Days later a police officer calls in about a suspect being pulled from the sewer. He was bitten in half.
Peter and Sheryl are asked by General Ellis for their expertise, and helping find a way to destroy the colony of giant ants.
The colony has reached a sizable population of more than 500.
As the army mobilizes in the larger city, the ants have already begun their attack. As the city is being attacked by the giant ants the army and air-force are fighting back with everything they have.
As the city is being over run by the ants, Sheryl has a theory to deliver a small nuclear bomb to the queen ant's chamber. Not sure if this will work, General Ellis gives the order for her plan to be carried out. As ants and humans continue to destroy each other. A nuclear bomb is being delivered under the streets without any knowledge to the people. Unsure of his decision, General Ellis contemplates on whether or not the towns people will die by the ants, a nuclear bomb, or will the army be able to gain back the city and destroy the ants in time?
