Overview

Just prior to her Three's Company superstardom, Suzanne Somers played the lead in the made-for-TV meller It Happened at Lakewood Manor. Boiled down to basics, this is a rehash of Jaws, with ants (!) substituting for sharks (the film's video release title, in fact, was Ants). A summer resort full of special-guest-star tourists is besieged by battalions of killer ants. Robert Foxworth, Myrna Loy, Lynda Day George, Bernie Casey, Barry Van Dyke and Brian Dennehy are among those on the little critters' menu. First telecast December 2, 1977, It Happened at Lakewood Manor was subsequently retitled Panic at Lakewood Manor.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Cavett Binion
This silly but fun made-for-TV movie involves swarms of ants laying waste to a buffet of Love Boat guest-stars at a chi-chi lakeside resort. It seems an overabundance of environmentally unsafe chemicals have goaded the little fellas into staging a massive, organized uprising against bipedal polluters ... granted, a similar animals-vs-man premise was already tackled in the far superior Frogs, but that film didn't offer viewers the singular joy of seeing a pre-Three's Company Suzanne Somers shrieking her head off as stagehands pelt her with what looks like thousands of raisins. Poor acting and badly-mounted suspense make for a premise slightly less horrifying than a plundered picnic basket.
