Editorial Reviews

THEM! - Radiation-mutated ants – 12 feet long and capable of lifting tons – become giant problems for James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, James Arness and all of Los Angeles. "Fascinating to watch. Them! is taut science fiction" (A.H. Weiler, The New York Times). THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS - An A-bomb test in the Arctic awakens a gargantuan prehistoric dinosaur that makes New York City its stomping ground in the movie (from a story by Ray Bradbury and with superb special effects by Ray Harryhausen) that launched a string of Atomic Age creature features. WORLD WITHOUT END - Hugh Marlowe, Rod Taylor and other Mars-mission astronauts skid on a time warp into a post-apocalyptic future Earth marked by fear, mutant monstrosities and a diminishing group of subterranean survivors. Can these wayfarers from the past preserve our world’s future? SATELLITE IN THE SKY - A stalwart crew (and a female reporter stowaway) guides a stratospheric jet rocket ship on the first space flight. The mission also involves another first: the outer-space detonation of the feared tritonium bomb. But mechanical failures threaten to trigger disaster. Strap in for suspense!

Customer Reviews

Excellent films and great quality with plenty of cheesy special effects.
Jason Smith
Sure bring back the good old memories since 1950's and 1960's when I was a kid watching these classic movies.
Rob Barr
Recommend if you enjoy the oldie Sci-Fi's, Then this one is great for your collection.

Format: DVD
This set contains four sci-fi films from the 50's. With the atomic age upon them, Frankenstein's monster and vampires were just not that scary anymore to the people of the 1950's. Thus filmmakers turned to creatures and environments that were the byproducts of man's nuclear experiments.

Probably the best known of these films is "Them!". In a location in the southwest U.S., at the site of the test of several nuclear weapons, people and sacks of sugar are disappearing in large quantities. Robert Graham (James Arness) represents federal law enforcement in the investigation, and Dr. Harold Medford (Edmund Gwenn) represents science. Also, there is a second doctor Medford, the very attractive daughter of Harold Medford.

"The Beast from Twenty Thousand Fathoms" revolves around a dinosaur trapped in the Arctic ice that is thawed and awakened as the result of a nuclear test. The scientist who first sees the creature is not believed. However, he soon has converts when the beast emerges from the deep and starts not only devouring Manhattanites but spreading a deadly disease.

"Satellite in the Sky" is a British effort. A rocket crew carries a powerful new type of bomb into space for a test. However, the bomb becomes attached to the ship's hull and will soon detonate if something is not done. This one is a bit talky, but pretty well done.

"World Without End" was produced by poverty row studio Allied Artists, whose catalog is now owned by Warner Brothers. Four astronauts returning from a mission to Mars wind up on earth 600 years in the future.

TCM Greatest Classic Films Collection : Sci-Fi Adventures
4 Classic 1950's Sci-Fi films for $18.99, prior to this collection's release you would have had to pay a lot more in purchasing these movies separately.
Here are the movies listed , in order by my favorite to least liked.

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS (1953):
Another creature being awakened by atomic bomb testing, this time it's a gigantic dinosaur "Rhedosaurus"
Excellent stop-motion effects by the master "Ray Harryhausen". Of course of all places the creature heads to , it has to be New York City. Here we get to see a lot of massive destruction + a lot of stock footage of military personnel and aircraft in attack mode.
Features the classic Coney Island Roller Coaster / Dinosaur scene that was years ahead of its time.
Again another black and white classic that has been transferred to DVD that is exceptional in clarity.
THEM (1954)
One of the more classic "BIG BUG" movies of all time. Again mankind has upset mother nature with atomic radiation.
Great production values and great sets, shot in glorious black and white.
One of the most "chilling" sounds is hearing the strange high-pitched chatter coming from "THEM". Giant-Sized atomic bred ants, who attack mostly in their search for sugar.
Stars James Arness (Matt Dillon of Gunsmoke fame)
Great transfer to DVD. I can still remember seeing this movie for the 1st time when I was young.
WORLD WITHOUT END (1956)
Never have seen this film before, it was quite a surprise.
4 astronauts are returning from earth's 1st mission to Mars, when they enter a mysterious time warp and are thrown into a nuclear ravaged earth some 552 years into the future.( Planet of the Apes ?

It's really two classics, a cliché and a clunker but overall a very worthwhile compilation -- and the price is right.

The quality of the film transfers to DVD is superior so I was more than happy to retire my old VHS tapes.

THEM! ranks as the best of the Bug films made popular in the 1950's. TARANTULA is right behind with THE BLACK SCORPION AND THE DEADLY MANTIS in the middle and BEGINNING OF THE END and EARTH VS. THE SPIDER taking up a rear position.

The opening of THEM!, including the bright red title bursting dramatically to fill the screen, is extremely effective and sets the mood for the mystery to come. The giant ants are ungainly by today's standards but still work their magic and the suspense builds throughout as actions unfold to find and destroy the threat of a multiplying atomic creation.

THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS showcases the genius of Ray Harryhausen's pain-staking stop-motion animation technique and should be added to his colorized titles along with EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS, 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH and IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA. A finely tuned tale with top-notch performances by Cecil Kellaway, Paula Raymond and sci-fi icon Kenneth Tobey

WORLD WITHOUT END has that space/time warp thingy going on that lands explorers on a future Earth devastated by atomic war, with a giant spider and mutants trying to put the hammer down (clubs, actually) on underground survivors that include lovely women in those cute mini-skirt costumes that made the rounds in such other pot-boilers as FLIGHT TO MARS and QUEEN OF OUTER SPACE.

The spaceship in ...END also found a home in several other interplanetary tales such as QUEEN... and IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE.
