Uploading.... Wait for it.

I was impressed by the film too when I saw it many moons ago. The ant photography was stunning and terrifying. The film just overplayed its hand a little with the constant invocation of the "final fight between men and insects".

You guys do realize it is a mockumentary, don't you? LOL!

Anyway, it scared the shit out of me years ago when I first saw it on TV.

Great share, cheers.
