I already had this movie on VHS and on Beta.I bought the DVD to get the"BEHIND -THE-SCENES ARCHIVE FOOTAGE MONTAGE ON THE DESIGN AND OPERATION OF GIANT ANTS.Either they forgot to include it, as well as, the theatrical trailer and cast film highlights, or the interactive menus on this DVD are so bad it's impossible to access any of the special features besides scene selection and subtitles.And it's not that easy to get the last two to function either.
Addendum to the above review:
Although I wasted hours trying to access the footage I mentioned above, it is there.If you are trying to view it on a computer , use the arrow and enter keys on the keyboard for access.Watch for changes in the text in the lower left panel.I still have had no luck using the mouse to get to that part of the content.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Stop "Them"! July 13 2004
Format:DVD
In the late 1940's and 1950's the USA and the Soviet Union repeatedly tested nuclear bombs. In the USA the early tests were done in the desert southwest, and the mushroom clouds could be seen for dozens of miles (and the noise could be heard for hundreds of miles). As scientists measured the increased levels of radiation in milk served to schoolchildren and their parents built bomb shelters in their backyards, Hollywood decided to take the cold war paranoia which made the fifties so unique and create a new type of sci-fi/horror movie - the "mutant monster" film. Along with the original "Godzilla", 1954's "Them" is one of the best of the lot. It starts out in the New Mexico desert, where two state troopers discover a mobile home that's been ripped apart by some unknown animal. The adults are missing, but they do find a terrified little girl (a creepy Sandy Descher) who's so shocked that she can't talk and simply stares wide-eyed and zombie-like at the policemen. A fierce sandstorm blows up, and the troopers then arrive at a local general store that's been ripped apart like the trailer. Curiously no money or valuables were stolen, but sugar has been spread everywhere, and the owner's corpse is found. He had emptied his shotgun at his attacker before being killed with a massive injection of acid. The troopers also find some tracks from an "unknown" large animal. Baffled by this turn of events, one trooper takes the mute little girl to a hospital. The other trooper stays behind to guard the store, but he is attacked and killed by an unknown assailant. The next day Robert Graham (a pre-Gunsmoke James Arness), an FBI agent, arrives to help with the investigation. Soon they are joined by two scientists from the Agriculture Dept. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars "There was no word to describe THEM!" April 8 2004
Format:DVD
As the ad told an unaware paranoid public as they were officially
introduced to 1st atomic age mutant film. Every Genre has a staple
and this film was it for "giant bug" catagory. There would be 100's
of atomic age nightmares to follow but none more better put togethe
than this well oiled machine.
The story begins as that of a police drama. A little girl is found
wandering in the Nevada desert by local police. Although alive shes
in a state of shock which adds to mystery to her folks where-abouts
When the two officers are radioed in to check out a nearby trailer
they find it's wall pulled out and insides wrecked. After Piecing
together a few clues the officers realized that this is the lost
girl's home and that her parents are perhaps the subjects of foul
play. On another nearby call the two officers investigate an old
supplyshack only to find it also in the same condition as trailer
with one added element,the body of "Pops" the store's owner dead
and lying mangled at the bottom of the cellar. One officer leaves
to get help while the other stays behind at the crime scene. When
he goes out back to search for the source of a wierd high pitched
chirping sound,he fires his weapon,screams & also becomes victim.
Upon the autopsy of "Pops" it's discovered that on top of broken
up condition he also has enough formic acid in him to kill 20 men
The FBI is called in and along with the 1st officer go back where
the little girl was found and it is there that they encounter the
horror of nature's fury in the form of giant ants mutated from a
deployment of atomic radiation.

Them! was the first giant insect movie, and its success spawned a raft of (sometimes superior) imitators, but you owe it to yourself (and your children, if you have any) to see this cheesy bit of cinematic history. I can remember watching this on Saturday afternoon, frozen to my chair but unable to walk away, being sobered and thrilled by Edmund Gwenn's last line on the unknown effects of our dropping the atomic bomb.
The cast is surprisingly memorable: James Whitmore, James Arness, Edmund Gwenn, Fess Parker. Unfortunately the cast listing is short, so the many other familiar character actors who appeared are not recognized, and it's a shortcoming of the otherwise fun extras that they don't fill in this gap. Heck, Leonard Nimoy has a small part, though it's not referenced anywhere on the disc! Action is sporadic and the ants are a bit ... okay, a lot ... laughable.
Extras also include "Bugged at the Movies", text pages about the many giant bug movies that followed; a 3-minute dose of film clips called "Behind the Scnes" but mainly just clips of clapboards; 25 stills, including posters.
Better action, better effects (Harryhausen) and a less leaden leading lady can be found in The Black Scorpion, but this first venture into giant bugdom should hold a special place in any movie-lover's heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who'd break into a box car full of sugar?!
This is the best giant bug movie (imho) of the '50s. Yeah the ants are rubber, but so what? The acting is good, with James Whitmore (what's he, like, 25?) & James Arness. Read more
