Locusts

fletcher producer michael robert

(ABC, 10/9/1974, 90 mins). Strikingly similar to the short story chiller “Laningen and the Ants” (filmed by Paramount in 1953 as “The Naked Jungle”), this tale has a menacing swarm of locusts advancing on the Midwest, forcing a young World War II pilot, discharged as unfit to fly, to attempt to conquer his personal terror and dispel his father’s shame.
