Considering the producer was responsible for Robot Monster, this film is not the incredible mess R.M. was.
It's also no THEM either.
It's an average 50's giant bug film. Slightly more inventive in using wasps that mainly crawl around on the ground rather than fly. We usually only see one giant wasp who resembles more dung beetle than a wasp.
I think there is a shot or two in which obviously animated wasps fly and buzz too.
Well radiation in Africa mutated wasps and they are killing natives mostly.
Harmless fun if you've got time. If you remember it as a kid your tolerance for it is significantly higher than viewers not familiar with the film.
