The Deadly Mantis

The Deadly Mantis

 The calving of an Arctic iceberg releases a giant praying mantis, trapped in suspended animation since prehistoric times. It first attacks military outposts to eat their occupants, then makes its way to the warmer latitudes of Washington and New York. A paleontologist works together with military units to try to kill it.

I had a similar experience with a gigantic palmetto bug flying around in the living-room. Let's just say that the resulting carnage boggled the imagination. You never really know how many things in your living-room are breakable until you start swatting things.

Enjoy this movie in all its campy, cheesy, insectoid, public domain goodness ...
