Do production crews know when a movie is a flop?
2 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 1978 film "The Swarm" was a major flop at the box office and was justifiably panned by many film critics. The film was such an infamous disaster, Producer/Director Irwin Allen refused to talk about the movie in later interviews.

The short "Inside 'The Swarm'" will not change my overwhelming negative feelings about the film. Nonetheless, after viewing the short film, the one constant was the professional work ethic of Allen, the stunt coordinators and the unnamed stunt people. If more money was spent on the visual effects, less money on hiring Hollywood stars to presumably hook audiences to see the movie, and more time spent fleshing out a weak script, maybe "The Swarm" might have worked.

After over 30 years, my feelings about this laughably horrible film has never changed.
