THEM! is a 1954 science-fiction film directed by Gordon Douglas. Set in the desert of New Mexico, the protagonists take on a nest of giant Black Carpenter Ants created by the nuclear tests at White Sands. The problem quickly becomes a worst-case scenario as they find out that several young queens escaped the nest before they were able to destroy it, spreading terror across the nation and, potentially, the globe.
