THIS IS WHAT ENTOMOLOGISTS ACTUALLY BELIEVE.

Frank Herbert wrote a novel called "Hellstrom's Hive" which centered around a cult like human ant colony that produced documentary films about insects as part of their activities, and plotted the destruction of the human race. They were, somehow, the good guys.

He must have REALLY liked this movie.

This won an Oscar in the documentary feature category... That's sort of weird.

I tracked down Roger Eberts 1971 review. It was positive, he loved the camera work, the scientist guy creeped him out, and he had a hard time believing that half of it was true.

This must have been mind-blowing back before insect documentaries because common. I can just imagine half the audience being on acid, with someone freaking out every 2 minutes.
