THEM! (1954)

THEM! Released in 1954 is a sci-fi horror movie. What do you get when radiation hits ants in the desert? You get THEM! Large ants terrorizing humanity! The effects in this movie are outstanding. The puppet and practical effects make the movie. None of that fake CGI stuff here. All real props the way things should be as much as possible.

The story is very simple. Investigate, Research, and Fight! There are some very funny points in the movie (not because it’s an old movie) that are done for the sake of comedy. Good laughs, good effects and the movie appears in Disney’s Lilo and Stitch 2 briefly for those wondering what they were watching.

All in all I don’t want to spoil to much of the film. The plot isn’t very deep it’s right to the point and you are off on a giant ant killing spree! The sound effects are interesting as well and for some reason I’ve noticed with other movies of the time fire seems to solve all problems…

Till next time get out the popcorn and watch THEM!
