Hey as far as I'm concerned, these bee babes sting
23 September 2003 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

And yeah, I do happen to like big, natural tits so there's no problem in that department here. And I don't think it takes itself too seriously, not like some of you reviewers below. This was a B picture for the drive-ins (remember those?) so don't take it too seriously, people.

William Smith plays Neil Agar, a State Department investigator looking into the suspicious death of a top government scientist. Of course the scientist isn't the only one turning up dead. Others in the area who are seemingly healthy are suddenly dropping dead from coronaries.

After a local cop turns up dead, the coroner determines that the victims are dying from "sexual exhaustion". In other words, they are literally being screwed to death. Some clues (which I won't go into) lead Agar to believe that there is some kind pattern that is forming concerning the mating habits of insects, specifically bees. The men are literally "dropping like flies" so he enlists the help of Julie Zorn (Victoria Vetri) who works at the local government lab in order to find out what's going on.

The first one he interviews is the head of the local insect department, Dr. Susan Harris (Anitra Ford) about the mating habits of insects. Dr. Harris always seems to have her sunglasses on, even indoors. What Agar doesn't seem to realize is that Dr. Harris has a secret lab hidden in the basement of the government facility where she 'converts' the dead men's wives into Bee Girls using a combination of radiation and bee venom. They are put into a machine naked, covered in a white cream and zapped with invisible rays.

When Dr. Harris finds out that Julie Zorn is helping Agar, she almost converts her into a Bee Girl herself, but Agar finds out about it in time and rushes into the lab and shoots up Harris' lab equipment and saves Zorn. All the Bee Girls die of electrocution or smoke inhalation and in a cool scene, Dr. Harris' face starts to rot and bleed.

This is a great B film from the 70s that is pure exploitation and a cheesy delight to watch, especially with all the naked females that appear (including Vetri and Ford) with natural breasts that seem to be a thing of the past in this age of silicone. It also looks like it was filmed in Simi Valley or Fountain Valley before all the land developers turned the place into a parking lot.

Also notable for being having 70s porn star Rene Bond in one of her few straight roles as an extra. They don't make 'em like this anymore.
