This Sci-Fi Double Feature is full of camp value laughable scares! You haven't experienced terror unless you've been seduced by The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms! In the next showcase, get taken under by Them!
Humanity has split the atom, unleashing a new era of science - an era that would also unleash monstrous celluloid rampages. An A-bomb test in the Arctic awakens The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, and it makes New York City its stomping ground in the movie (based on a story by Ray Bradbury) that launched a string of Atomic Age creature features.
One of the best of those cautionary yarns is Them! Radiation-mutated ants - 12 feet long and capable of lifting tons - become giant problems for James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, James Arness and all of Los Angeles. They're big. They're bad. They've got a serious attitude problem. You won't find a can of bug spray big enough to stop 'em!
Oscar, Them!, [Them] Best Effects, Special Effects
BBCi - Films (DVD review)
[Them] Busy little ants are turned into "Them!" (as in giant ants of course) by a radiation leak in this 50s B-movie favourite. More fun could have been had in bringing this movie to DVD, but the tongue-in-cheek menu designs and quality presentation of the film do please.
[Beast] Everything has a starting point. In the case of monster on the loose epics, their father is "King Kong." Leave it to Ray Harryhausen to blow the roof off of it. "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" began the cycle of 1950's monster epics and 51 years later ranks as one of the top three films in the genre.
Dennis Shwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
[Them] One of the best Sci-Fi'ers to emerge from the 1950's.
[Beast] ...no denying this is a good example of the genre, and a good movie.
John J. Puccio, DVDTown.com
[Them] After half a century, it remains THE quintessential giant-bug picture.
