Remembering The Bees (1978)

THE BEES: 1978 Theatrical Trailer (Vinegar Syndrome)

Before the murder hornets of 2020-2021, there was another bee-related horror story in the form of 1978’s The Bees. Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:

When South American killer bees, corporately smuggled into the United States, mutates into intelligent insects and attacks helpless people, young scientist work desperately to end the threat as the menace swarms in on the city areas.

Directed by Alfredo Zacarías (Stranger in the House, The Bandits, The Pearl), it starred John Saxon, Angel Tompkins, and John Carradine as citizens across the country desperately tried to escape the winged beasts. I do think the film was missing a Nicolas Cage cameo though.
