    Them!

    The first big bug movie of the 1950s - indeed the movie that unleashed a whole slew of gigantic and/or radioactive menaces.

    A Bay of Blood

    ★★★★★

    A truly seminal film contain the template for Friday 13th (and by extension most subsequent slashers). However it's also packed in a series of trademark giallo twists building to a very memorable climax
