"My God! His Mouth Is Full Of Bees!"... "I Don't Believe That Man!"...
9 September 2018 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

TERROR OUT OF THE SKY is the sequel to THE SAVAGE BEES. It begins w/ Jeannie Devereaux, having a nightmare about the first film's absurd, football field finale. Somehow, Jeannie has magically transformed from Gretchen Corbett into Tovah Feldshuh! Meanwhile, at the National Bee Center, killer bees have mixed in w/ regular honeybees w/ tragic results. Enter Dr. David Martin (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.). Martin arrives at the NBC just in time for an unwary hive technician to do the bee-sting bugaloo! The problem is quickly contained. Oh no! A shipment of killer bees has already been shipped from the lab! Thankfully, Jeannie's boyfriend, Nick Willis (played by bearded mountain, Dan Haggerty) is a pilot, and can fly David and Jeannie to the problem area. Too late! The bees have been entrusted to a hillbilly, who runs them around in his pickup truck! Much time is spent on useless palaver between the main characters, leading up to the little league baseball game finale. Let the swarming doom begin! Now, as preposterous as the ending was for the first film, this makes that one seem perfectly reasonable! After recruiting some boy scouts, Jeannie makes her last stand aboard a school bus, while an annoying marching band plays their last song! Ever! As glorious as this may sound, it results in one of the most tedious driving sequences ever filmed, followed by activity inside the bus that boggles the mind, while it smooths the brain! Shirtless scouts? Dear lord! When Martin introduces his solution to the onslaught, credulity is stretched into string cheeeze! All while Grizzly Adams looks on. WARNING: This movie contains imbecility so rarefied it could cause deep, cranial scarring!...
