I remember the close up of the ant crawling on the girl's nipple and the one scientist guy getting eaten by the ants.

Loved that movie even as weird as it was.  Super smart ants vs. group of scientist with really weird bug killers.  Made me afraid to walk around on dirt for weeks after I first saw it.

According to Mr. Simmon's account, he got the role in that film (Runaway, 1984) because Michael Crichton asked him to stare at him for several minutes without any expressions, and he did it creepily enough to suit Crichton (And maybe made him soil himself, who knows?)

I find it odd that Crichton directed a movie that was pretty much based on an Asimov short story.

The local UPN station's early Saturday afternoon movie made sure that I knew precisely what the hell you were talking about, subby.

Weeeeeiiiird film, that one.  I'm not one for remakes usually, but there's one that could use it.  The inherent idea is creepy as hell, and the presentation works in places, but overall it needed a lot of work.
