"Few mutated-creature features from the '50s were blessed with leads as convincing as James Whitmore."
Description by OLDIES.com:
A horror horde of crawl-and-crush giants clawing out of the earth from mile-deep catacombs!
Man has split the atom and ushered in a new era. But how could he know he would also create Them?
Them! is a landmark movie about giant radiation-mutated ants that gets better with age and boasts remarkable, Academy Award-nominated special effects. Starring James Whitmore, James Arness and Edmund Gwenn, Them! begins in New Mexico with a child wandering in shock, a ransacked general store - and a battered corpse full of enough formic acid to kill 20 men! It ends with an epic struggle in the 700 miles of storm drains under Los Angeles, where the insect hordes are beaten. But they're not conquered, because they spawned a generation of films about radioactive creatures. Some approximate the terror but few have equaled the artistry of Them!
Atomic radiation once again manages to transform tiny harmless creatures into gigantic holy terrors. Probably the best of the '50s phenomenon, this top-notch thriller witnesses an invasion of giant ants using the sewer systems of Los Angeles like a vast ant farm. Academy Award Nominations: Best Special Effects.
Nine years after the atomic blast at Alamogordo, New Mexico, giant, mutant ants terrorize a small town in the southwest desert of the United States. Two doctors from the department of Agriculture are summoned to find the nest and destroy them... if they can.
