* CompletelyDifferentTitle - In Sweden, the film was infamously misstranslated as "Spindlarna" ("The Spiders").
* ExecutiveMeddling - Was going to be in color and 3D before the studio got cold feet. This could be argued to have been a good thing, as the planned color of the ants (green) could have been NightmareRetardant.
* FollowTheLeader - This film owes a bit to ''Film/TheBeastFromTwentyThousandFathoms'' and ''Film/{{Gojira}}'', and was, itself, the inspiration for countless subsequent movies about big bugs, none of which were anywhere near as good as the three aforementioned films, and most of which wound up on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''.

* ScienceMarchesOn: Ants, at least ones in America, don't make noise; in the 1950s, this was a point of debate among entomologists, as ultrasonic microphones of the needed sensitivity didn't exist. Forgiveable today by the RuleOfScary as [[TropesAreNotBad the sound]] ''[[TropesAreNotBad is]]'' [[TropesAreNotBad very chilling.]]
