Gordon Douglas directs James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn and Joan Weldon in this atomic age sci-fi about gigantic ants attacking America.

Dull scientists and wooden cops take on mutant insects. Not particularly transgressive or kitsch. Did exactly what it said on the tin back then but serves as little more than the inspiration for a fun retro quad poster these days.
