Them are now killer bees
9 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I'm not sure if anyone noticed but the plot of Terror Out Of The Sky seems to have been lifted from the 50s science fiction classic Them. The only change is a different insect, bees instead of ants.

Some nasty South American killer bees have escaped and scientists Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and Tovah Feldshuh and her pilot ex-boyfriend Dan Haggerty are right on the case. In the same way the ants headed for Los Angeles to build a colony, the killer bees have decided to settle in a small New Mexico town where there is an Air Force base nearby, convenient for dealing with these winged six legged intruders.

The cast truly just goes through the motions here. I'm not sure even the kids playing the Boy Scout troop trapped on a school bus really looked all that terrified. They were more scared of their paychecks not clearing.
