Sheriff Lyndon Harris of a rural Washington town tries hard to smoothen life for his people, while shark mayor Ditwaller is out to acquire property after bank foreclosures. Lyndon also has an ex who presses for divorce and two kids, who need his help, especially son Dylan, who is easily lead astray by champion imp Jared Wylie. After noticing a Mexican truck with bee hives and several unusually aggressive bee attacks, Lyndon take doc's advice to consult entomologist Riley Muir, who concludes it's the northernmost-ever case of Latin American killer bees. Despite more bee attacks, the mayor refuses safety precautions, giving sole priority to closing a deal with a distributing company at the honey festival. Written by KGF Vissers

Honey I'm Home
12 August 2015 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Killer Bees is a stinging remake of Jaws even going as far as having a town mayor warning the sheriff not to frighten the locals.

C Thomas Howell is the sheriff in question and he has thing against bees as he saw his father die from an attack by a swarm of bees as a child.

After a truck driven by what seems like a drunk driver from South America is involved in an accident, a crate or two filled with South American killer bees are unleashed.

The Sheriff is suspicious as one or two bodies turn up dead with what looks like bee stings. He calls in a bee expert, she happens to have the hots for our sheriff. Fortunately although the sheriff is married with kids, he is available as it seems that he and his wife are not together any more.

Of course the nasty Mayor who spends his time buying up land from poor farmers will have none of these deadly bee tales. He is organising the Honey Festival and everyone is going to show up for that including the local media. I think the Mayor failed to tell the bees not to show up as that leads to the stinging finale.

There is no suspense here as initially a few stray people get attacked and killed before a member of the sheriff's family is under attack. The CGI bees are poor but the whole movie is still a lot better than an Asylum film made for the Sci-Fi channel.

Its corny, its predictable but its also cheesy fun.
