Hello all. This is our last Saturday before the 31st, and I wanted to cover one of my favorite films. It is one of the first atomic monster movies and the first to feature giant insects. The film is titled simply Them!.
As a kid, I adored this film and still enjoy watching it and exposing others to it. The film stars James Whitmore and James Arness as lawmen, who stumble upon an incredible discovery. Atomic radiation has caused an ant colony to grow to gigantic proportions. This film actually taught me a lot of things that I would never have known about ants and covers the science accurately. It also claims Oscar-nominated special effects.
Fans of classic giant monster movies have to see this one. If you grew up watching old horror movies on Saturday nights, I guarantee that you have seen this classic. Click on the cover below and read on for the official synopsis from Amazon.com.
Synopsis: A landmark movie about giant radiation-mutated ants with Oscar®-nominated effects and an epic struggle in the drains beneath Los Angeles, Them! only gets better with age.
