One of the 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made According to the Official Razzie Movie Guide
Irwin Allens's Production of The Swarm received almost universally negative reviews and was laughed off the screen by audiences but as an entertainment it's hard not to love. A super swarm of killer bees (meticulously animated by painting black dots on the film frame by frame) invades America killing everyone in their path including an all star cast of aging Hollywood A-listers, the army and even a playground filled with school children in one bravura, tasteless sequence. The body count accelerates deliriously as cities burst into flames, passenger trains hurl off their tracks and even a power plant under attack goes nuclear! The chaos and carnage is EPIC in scale while the genuinely great actors speak hilariously bad lines like; 'Bees, bees what a lot of bees.'. One of two films released by The Master of Disaster that year which helped kill his career the other being; Beyond the Poseidon Adventure.
