Them! (1954)

Them! is a 1954 black and white science fiction film about man's encounter with a nest of radiation-giganticized ants. It is based on an original story treatment by George Worthing Yates, was developed into a screenplay by Ted Sherdeman and Russell Hughes for Warner Bros. Pictures Inc., which was produced by David Weisbart and directed by Gordon Douglas for the company. It starred James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, Joan Weldon and James Arness.
One of the first of the "nuclear monster" movies, and the first "big bug" film, Them! was the biggest moneymaker for Warner's in the year of its release. - Wiki

This movie is great. Even though it's about giant ants, the storyline manages to be engaging and suspenseful.

This movie frequently is kind of looked down upon since it's a giant ant movie, but I wish the tactics employed in this film were utilized more often.

Through the first half of the film, you never actually see the ants, you just hear this high-pitched sound and a wall is pulled down and a person killed. Sure, from the cover of the movie you know what it is, but you're able to play along with the characters and piece together what could be doing this.

Relatively speaking of course, I thought the Killer Ants looked pretty good and seemed formidible and bloodthirsty. My favorite scene was when the cop after a prolonged gunfight, killed one of the ants with the tommy gun, setting up the fact that they could be killed, but that it took that much firepower to kill just one of them. And they had to deal with an entire colony!

It was the perfect balance of cheese and suspense. Awesome.
