  • 1957
  • Movie
  • NR
  • Science Fiction

Lame rip-off of the sci-fi classic THEM! sees a giant praying mantis thawed out of its arctic grave (how a praying mantis ended up in the Arctic is never explained) and flying to America where it chews up most of Washington, DC, and Manhattan before it is finally killed by poison gas in the Holland Tunnel, of all places.
