SFX - - Penny dreadful -

Gor­don Dou­glas, 1954

Po­lice pro­ce­dural turns gi­ant atomic ant hor­ror in the first of the nu­clear para­noia “big bug” films. Looks a bit hokey now but was nom­i­nated for an Os­car for its FX, as res­i­dents of a New Mex­ico town are ter­rorised by six- legged freaks un­til the mil­i­tary gets in­volved. Fea­tures a cameo from a young Leonard Ni­moy.
