Another reason to hate Neil Sedaka - an undiscovered camp classic!
During the 60s and 70s, Florida was definitely not a hotbed of independent film talent. The state turned out the likes of H.G. Lewis, Barry Mahon, and Brad F. Grinter. You can now add William Grefe to that, err, illustrious list. "Sting of Death" is an absolutely horrible movie on every technical level, no doubt about it. However, its that special kind of bad that only comes around once in a while. The film's ineptness transcends into absolute hilarity. Simply put, this is one of the greatest bad movies ever made. Its almost as good as "Plan 9 From Outer Space", and its just as fantastically entertaining as either "Robot Monster" or "Teenagers From Outer Space".
The film is just chock full of camp value from beginning to end. The main monster is a were-jelly fish with a garbage bag bubble on top of his head. His victims are a bunch of annoying and flat out dumb college kids who dance to horrible songs by Neil Sedaka. This is one of those monster movies were you just can't wait to see the cast killed off because of how much you hate them. The gang is also terrorized by actual jelly fishes in addition to the head monster, which are just plastic bags with streamers attached to them. The direction is absolutely poor with no sense of pacing whatsoever. In other words, an undiscovered camp classic! This is highly recommended to fans of bad movies. (7/10)
