Killer bees from South America have been breeding with the gentler bees of more northern climes, slowly extending their territory northward decade after decade. Entomologist Brad Crane has discovered that something is making them come together in huge, killer swarms. He wants to keep the General Slater from using military tactics from further upsetting the balance of nature as they join to try to stop the swarms from approaching Houston.Written by
Irwin Allen was so disheartened by the amount of money he lost on this film, that he forbade any of his employees to ever mention it again. He even cut short an interview when a question was asked about it. See more »

General, if you use that, nothing will grow out there for the next ten years!
Why worry about shaving when somebody's going to cut your head off!

Disclaimer in closing credits: The African killer bee portrayed in this film bears absolutely no relationship to the industrious hard-working American honey bee to which we are indebted for pollinating vital crops that feed our nation. See more »
A disaster of a movie but not the kind of disaster they intended
A disaster of a movie but not the kind of disaster the film makers intended. Just awful movie with inept "special" effects and a host of usually fine actors giving atrocious performances. Katharine Ross in particular is terrible, beyond wooden to positively inert but Caine is hardly better. The only one who is seemingly trying to earn his paycheck is Richard Widmark who gives his all while surrounded by bored costars. Although who can blame them with a script that stinks like year old cheese. Let's hope they were well paid. Do yourself a favor and don't watch. If you have to see a bee disaster movie seek out "Killer Bees" a TV movie with Gloria Swanson and Kate Jackson which at least is entertaining.
