If it has C Thomas Howell in it and it's not the Outsiders i

"I had to write a review so that I could save someone else the energy from thinking this might be even a wee bit entertaining. The effects were so far subpar that you could not fool a 5 year old into believing in the large ants. This movie has been done repeatedly in different ways (the giant killer insects) and better. In the 50's at least there was an excuse for the cheesy effects. This is the 2nd adult C Thomas Howell movie I purchased in which I realized that this poor guy needs to go into real estate or something. The Crimson Code is also very poor.
Not only is the acting questionable and not entertaining (except for Stella Stevens, she did great!) but the costume designer needs to be punished. C Thomas was dressed like a french painter slash janitor with the ascot and all. PLEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE!
I would have rated this movie lower then 1 if it had been offered. If it comes free on Sci-Fi and it's a Sunday and you are bored, give it a shot. If it's for actively purchasing this thing and paying shipping.... well, I wouldn't do it."

"Remember THEM....THE BLACK SCORPION...BEGINNING OF THE END..TARANTULA? Those magnificently corny but loveable big bug movies of the fifties? Well, THE GLASS TRAP whether intentionally or unintentionally pays homage to these movies in its own delightful way. The ants don't look too bad from a distance, but the close ups are cheesy and pedophilic! But that's what makes this movie so tolerably enjoyable. C. Thomas Howell looks completely lost in his heroic janitor(?) role; Stella Stevens (always Linda Rogo from THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE) chews up the scenery a'la Joan Crawford and Bette Davis; B movie stalwarts Brent Huff, Andrew Prine, Ron Harper and Chick Vennera add cult status; and Martin Kove is hilarious as the "specialist" who comes in to save the day. The movie is rightfully ridiculous but if you loved those killer bug movies aforementioned (as I did growing up on them), then THE GLASS TRAP can be forgiven for its clunky amateurishness."

"This was the Cheesiest horror movie I've ever seen it was hilarious, especialy when Stella Stephens got Eaten by the Ant.
WE All Prayed she would DIE.... and then at the end she did.
(People who watched this movie Know what I'm TALKIN about.)
I'm giving it 3 stars just for that one scene!!!"
