Director Gordon Douglas’ superior B sci-fi extravaganza about giant ants in California that epitomize the 50s decade of “invasion anxiety.” Them! (1954) had been the stand out film in 1954 next to Universal’s Creature From the Black Lagoon! Unless you have a guilty pleasure for Devil Girl from Mars!
Starring James Whitmore, Joan Weldon, James Arness and Edmund Gwenn as Dr. Medford who shines throughout with his perspicacity and zest for calling forth the tone of doom! Great dialogue, fantastic cinematography by Sidney Hickox and a dramatic score by Bronislau Kaper… It was a pleasure to live tweet about this classic gem of a giant bug movie with the fabulous Ruth from Silver Screenings! Here’s a Storified version of Tweet session. Let’s do this again shall we!
