(85) I was critical of Them! the first time I saw it. In a review left unwritten, I’d have criticized the lack of wide stop-motion effects shots to demonstrate the scope of the infestation. Seeing it now, though I still dream of frames that aren’t there, I appreciate the glimpses of future sci-fi classics in the aesthetics. The first thirty minutes of the film are a fine bit of suspense and, while the cinematography can’t consistently match its highlights, Them! is hardly boring to look at.
