Texoma Film Club presents the movie “Them!”
Despite its small budget, The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953) turned out to be one of the top money-earners of the year and immediately began a trend. Soon atomic radiation was spawning all manner of monsters – giant reptiles, giant insects, giant spiders, giant scorpions, even giant people. Warner Brothers, who had released The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms and subsequently made a fortune from it, followed it up with Them! (1954), the first of the giant insect films.
The best monster movie of 1954 and one of the best of the decade, Them! was directed by Gordon Douglas from a screenplay by Ted Sherdemann, the film was remarkable for jettisoning the more melodramatic aspects of the ‘creature feature’ and adopting a low-key semi-documentary approach which adds greatly to the realism of the unlikely story.”
