Saul Bass was already considered a dazzling Hollywood great in the 50s and 60s, who always worked in the background and yet made a significant contribution to legendary cinema milestones such as «West Side Story», «Vertigo», «Psycho» and «The Invisible Third». and later also «GoodFellas» and «Casino» grabbed their audience from the first second.

The six-legged form entirely new structures and attack their natural enemies with unusual aggressiveness. When even the first humans fell victim to the desert ants, the scientists finally realized: If they don’t quickly find a way to get rid of the murderous insects, the end of the world as we know it could be imminent…
