The plot: After an unexplained 'celestial event' an ant colony starts to show signs of newly acquired intelligence, building strange geometric structures, aggressively shaping their surroundings and eliminating perceived threats. Two scientists set up camp in a bio dome close to the structures to examine the new strain of ants by studying the colony's audio communication and direct interaction. Soon they find out how much of a threat a species this goal-orientated and self-sacrificing can be when coupled with superior intelligence and overarching long-term goals.
Apparently, the movie was not very successful when it first came to theaters, but all movie reviews from more recent watchers are rating it fairly high. ( See Rotten Tomatoes or IMDb ). Side note: According to Wikipedia the wildlife photographer Ken Middleham who shot the insect sequences for Phase IV also shot the insect sequences for the documentary The Hellstrom Chronicle.
