The Hellstrom Chronicle
Featuring stunning microphotography of a variety of insects, this quasi-documentary presents itself as the creation of (fictional) Swedish entomologist Dr. Hellstrom (Lawrence Pressman), who warns that bugs are taking over the world. And with ultra close-ups of wars between ant colonies and a gigantic praying mantis practicing cannibalism, it's easy to believe. This unusual blend of horror film and nature study won an Oscar for Best Documentary.
