The Deadly Mantis (1957)

WadeVC's picture

The Deadly Mantis is one of the 3 best-known of the "Giant Bug" movies from the 50's...THEM! & Tarantula being the other 2.

Although not as wildy popular as the previous two mentioned, The Deadly Mantis still makes for a good time and a great way to whittle away an hour or so.

Too bad they didn't have Them vs. the deadly mantis or Tarantula vs. the deadly mantis. You get the idea. The 3 best giant bug films.
