Ep. 03-31: The Deadly Mantis (1957)

An attack on an arctic weather station and a USAF transport plane has the Air Force puzzled. Their scientists make little headway but Col. Joe Parkman enlists the aid of a paleontologist, Dr. Ned Jackson (William Hopper), who may have the answer: the culprit is a giant praying mantis. The creature is traveling south, and it’s a race against time to capture or kill it.

Episode 31

Welcome to the first of our coverage of three creature-features in a row! The 1950s and the atomic age introduced a plethora of these big-bug type films, and The Deadly Mantis (1957) is a prime example. Join us as we discuss our history with this film and how it holds up the modern age. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys tracks a giant monster from the arctic to DC, and finally, New York… bearing witness to the path of destruction it leaves.
