"Finland’s Roger! Pictures partnered with US-based legendary video game developer Cinemaware to produce a motion picture adaptation of the classic 80’s game It Came From the Desert.
Marko Mäkilaakso (War of the Dead) directed and co-wrote with Trent Haaga (68 Kill) and Hank Woon (Age of Dinosaurs).
Roger’s Teemu Virta and Alliance Media Partners (AMP) produced the film with the support of the Finnish Film Foundation. Tero Kaukomaa (Iron Sky 1 & 2) served as executive producer.
A pulpy, action monster movie, inspired by Cinemaware’s cult 1980s video game "It Came from the Desert". A nostalgic tribute to creature features from the 1950’s, 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!
