This review is from: Them! [DVD]  (DVD)
I first saw this film when I was about 13 (i'm now 26) on the TV over a friends house and I thought it was brilliant then and I still do now, I own it on DVD and every time I watch it I get chills up my spine.
Don't get me wrong the film isn't exactly terrifying but I still have vivid memories of the first time I heard the eerie sound of the Ants communicating with each other and the horrible screams of their victims.
The special effects are stunning considering how old the film is and the Ants are genuinely scary if you can see past the fact that they are obviously models. I guess you could say the storyline of giant radioactive Ants in the desert is a bit pants but c'mon this was the 50's an era notorious for giant irradiated mutations running around killing small town Americans...films like this are classic and I recommend it, especially at the low price Amazon are offering it at.
