Who will survive the attack of the giant, radioactive ants in THEM!?

Fear of nuclear winter wasn’t the only modern anxiety ushered in by the atomic age, there was also fear of radiation and what these glowing mystery particles might do to poor, innocent mother Earth. Like… say, transform a colony of ants into eight-foot-long killing machines. Bursting from the nuclear testing grounds of New Mexico, the giant ants of Them! go on the war path against the United States of America, terrorizing our women and killing our best and brightest gas station attendants. When the ants establish a colony right below Los Angeles, only our boys in uniform can save us from the terror, horror, excitement and mystery of Them!

Part of Nitehawk’s July ANIMAL ATTACKS! midnite and brunch series.
