Director John Frankenheimer has made a frightening monster movie that people could laugh at for generations to come, complete with your basic big scary thing, cardboard characters and a story so stupid it’s irresistible.

Once again, the real villain is Careless Mankind. Only this time, it isn’t Atomic Fallout that’s creating giant ants and killer cockroaches but Industrial Pollution.

Among the performers, only Armand Assante as an Indian leader gets half-a-chance to show his talent and Talia Shire is reduced to a whining wimp. Leonard Rosenman’s score cheats constantly, building to frightening moments that don’t happen.
