Movie Info

This unique and quirky offering combines elements of documentary films and horror movies to illustrate the potential threat posed by the world's insects. With their collective intelligence, high capacity for work and sharp instincts, the film argues, they are waging a struggle against humans for supremacy of our planet. Expert cinematography captures footage of the small creatures, some quite tiny and elusive, interspersed with clips from horror films to achieve dramatic effects.

Audience Reviews for The Hellstrom Chronicle

  • Mar 19, 2012
    Using paranoid purple prose, fictional scientist Dr. Hellstrom narrates this documentary about the evolutionary superiority of insects compared to humans and the inevitability of their eventual triumph over us. Edifying, entertaining and vaguely psychedelic in its presentation; it's like a mondo horror documentary, with scenes of a bulbous termite queen spitting out eggs, a battle between invading wasps and a swarm of bee defenders, and a horde of millions of army ants marching across the savannah consuming every plant, insect or reptile in its path.
