This eerie tale about super-intelligent ants marks the feature film directorial debut of noted designer Saul Bass (Psycho). The story concerns two scientists who install themselves in an ant-proof dome full of computer equipment that interprets the ants' communications. When the men spread yellow poison over the area, annihilating millions of ants, the surviving ants find an antidote to the poison and, even stronger, they strike back. What follows is not so much science fiction as it is science fact thrust one step forward. Incredible photography.
