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 Well done!!! Dec 10 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this way back around the early to mid '70s on television. I remembered it but didn't see it again until a couple of years ago on TCM. Finally sat down to it in its entirety.

On the face of it this sounds like it would be a typical hoary '50s sci-fi B flick. Well, maybe it was considered that because the premise is pretty B grade: giant ants mutated by lingering radiation from the first atomic test in New Mexico in 1945.

But I think this is a rather polished piece of film making that's decently written and well acted. Sure the ants themselves look dated by today's standards, but they still manage to tell a good and effective story because they treat the subject matter totally straight. And I couldn't help but sense elements of the later Alien movies in this, particularly the second film Aliens.

And to boot a solid cast of James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn and James Arness.

This is a good one and I quite like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars "That ant hole is no place for a woman!" Feb. 5 2010
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A little girl is found wandering in the desert, the sole survivor of her family, and the only word she can say is, "Them!" A local police officer (James Whitmore) and an FBI agent (James Arness) investigate the mystery with the help of a lovely scientist (Joan Weldon).

One of the best of the fifties sci-fi movies, "Them" has a good cast, a serious and at times, even educational tone to the script, and giant ants that are usually half-hidden in the dark. (Just as well, because they're pretty lame by today's standards, but still fun for nostalgia-fans.)

It's wholesome entertainment that would only scare small children these days, but those who love the genre will appreciate the sincere and solemn characters who risk their lives to save mankind from atom bomb-mutated bugs. A simple story with good acting that is still entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars We're gonna need more Orkin men Nov. 25 2007
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
As a kid, I thought it was entertaining to squirt ants with my water gun and see if they could get away without drowning. I'm not proud of that fact, but I daresay I'm not the only dumb kid who ever tortured ants for fun. You can't tell me you've never kicked over an anthill before. For centuries, ants have also paid the price for the "crimes" committed by their nastier cousins (bees, wasps, etc.) because they are the perfect scapegoats - you can find them anywhere, and they're oh so harmless (well, except for the likes of fire ants and soldier ants). Just think about how many ants you've unknowingly squashed under your shoes over the years. Even those who "wouldn't hurt a fly" have probably sent countless ants to that big ant hill in the sky. If I were an ant, I would hunger for revenge on all the ruthless humans. Here they are, mind bogglingly more powerful than the mightiest of their tormentors (no human can lift something twenty times his own body weight), veterans of interspecies warfare, more organized than even the mightiest of human armies, and yet they can do nothing but wish they were large enough to really teach humans a lesson. Ironically, human beings actually grant them their wish in this seminal science fiction/horror classic.

Nothing much happens out in the New Mexico desert - until now. It's a big mystery at first, as Sgt. Ben Peterson (James Whitmore) and his partner pick up a shell-shocked young girl wandering aimlessly in the desert, then discover an abandoned car trailer down the road that has been ripped apart pretty good. The only clues - a bloody shirt, a mysterious print in the sand, and some scattered sugar cubes. The situation gets curiouser and curiouser when they check in at Gramps' store and find it all smashed up, just like the trailer.

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 ›
