Review by Wayne Malin

What a lousy film!,

Some cosmic force is turning nice suburban women into “bee” women. To survive that must have sex…and end up “exhausting” men to death! Naturally all the women are young and have great bodies.

Interesting idea very badly executed. This movie cries for camp, but it takes itself very seriously…TOO seriously! There’s bad acting, needless nudity (esecially in a sequence where we see a woman “changed” into a bee woman), lousy color, bad sound and scenes shot at night are so dark I couldn’t make out what was going on. There’s also a very cruel and tasteless attempted rape in the movie. Also there seems to be a message here–all sexually aggressive women should be destroyed. That’s misogynist and disturbing.

This was rediscovered on video in the early 80s, and Siskel & Ebert listed it as one of their “guilty favorites”. This caused some excitement over it but it died down pretty quickly (probably because people actually saw the movie). A boring, disturbing and sick motion picture. A must miss at all costs.
