This movie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid-I hate bugs!!It came on one of those Saturday afternoon Horror shows. Its also funny to see how we've changed through the years in the past a movie like this could give someone a heart attack---now we laugh at them

I have always loved movies about giant mutant bugs! That is one of the first bug flicks I've seen. At the time i was fascinated by the appearance of the ants in the movie and how "alive" the director made them seem and how horrified the people were in the movie to see such monstrosities!

Don't forget the cameo by Leonard Nimoy!

Hey! I love the old B/W horror! I grew up on it. The funny thing about this topic is, earlier today, my grandson, he's 3 1/2, wanted to watch what he calls the "Big Buggie Movie'! We just watched 'Frogs', the bad movie from '72 (one of His faves). I have my kids watching the old horror movies, now I'm working on getting my grandkids into horror movies. After 'Them', he wanted to watch 'Gammera, The Invincible'. I must be doing my part! How many little kids would rather watch old B/W horror, than SpongeBob?        Later,           Kaboom

WOW, you know, this was the very 1st horror/scifi movie I did see. When I was 6 years old, my parents went on a weekend get away, and I was stuck at the house with a nimrodic baby sitter.

She didnt really care what i was wacthing or in that fact doing either, So at 1 AM I believe it was the USA network, I watched "THEM" great movie. So started, a... sickness of horror and scfi movies.

I truly do love the classics, I.E. Frankenstein, bride, Creature from the balck lagoon, etc etc, Im 30, and I have just about 300 horror movies, I havent bought any in about 2 years.

I do thank you for this trip, Giant killer ants, now thats a freak show!!!!
