Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 01/18/2012
"[A] deliciously hyperbolic insect study that marries beautiful microphotography with a Herzogian view of nature as a deceptively idyllic stage that sings with the relentless harmony of murder." -- Grade: B+
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2012
"THE HELLSTROM CHRONICLE exists at the intersection of pure cinema and Mondo kitsch."

Product Description:

This remarkable quasi-documentary on insects features amazing microphotography which lends support to the film's theory that insects will one day rule the earth. Uneven but a big award winner at the time which enjoyed a cult following, especially amongst the stoned.


Production Notes:

  • Winner of a special award, the Grand Prix de Technique, at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival.
  • Eight camera units filmed the insect world in four continents during a two-year period.
