Plot Summary
This IMAX documentary, shot in vivid and squirm-inducing 3-D, journeys to the lush rainforest of Borneo to examine in minute detail the various fascinating and sometimes creepy insects that exist there, including ants and beetles. But the film is given dramatic momentum by focusing on the short-lived adventures of a praying mantis named Hierodula and a caterpillar named Papilio, the latter eventually metamorphosing into an exquisite butterfly. The film is narrated by actress Judi Dench.

    By the standards of most IMAX films, this is a bizarre entry, a documentary about bugs that was produced by Terminix, the pest control company. show more

    Here's one movie you'll want to see with an audience of squealing, excited, terrified kids, their arms extended greedily to grab, squish or ward off all things exoskeletal and beady-eyed. It's gross, but in the nicest way (meaning no roaches). show more

    This 3-D Imax film puts you at eye level with awesome creatures that look like alien beasts from deep space. show more
