Desert ants suddenly form a collective intelligence and begin to wage war on the desert inhabitants. It is up to two scientists and a stray girl they rescue from the ants to destroy them. But the ants have other ideas.
A classic 70’s eco-film. Along with Andromeda Strain, Silent Running, Soylent Green, Planet of the Apes, Omega Man, A Boy and His Dog, Demon Seed and others, Phase IV is a 70’s film standout for its message of human hubris, greed and excess causing harm to nature. And in Phase IV the ants strike back. Thought-provoking, and beautifully shot for a low budget film, Phase IV generates real suspense and heightened drama through good performances, a well-crafted story, and excellent editing of the extreme close-up shots of the ants.
