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 thought Marge would end up with Dr. Ned, not Col. Joe. Oh well. I remember watching this as a kid and wishing they'd let the mantis go to the tropics and leave him alone. He WAS here first, after all! I always took pity on the giant critters. Nice to see again. Thank you!
