Hopefully that drum will stay tight.  I absolutely love "Them!" and doubt
anyone could recapture the allure.

I also loved "Eight Legged Freaks".  I'm thinking this is the movie they
wanted to make.  While I enjoyed the movie they did end up making, the sad
part is that now we'll probably never see a well done version of the book.

"Rico's Roughnecks" isn't it?  Or was that the direct to video animated
movie that as far as I can tell was buried out of mercy.
