Killer bees have overrun South America, and the one scientist, Dr Miller (Claudio Brook), who worked out in the field to find a weapon against the bees, failed to do so because somebody embezzled his funds, and ultimately he's killed by the bees he's supposed to render harmless.

His wife Sandy (Angel Tompkins) smuggles some of the bees to the USA for professor Hummel (John Carradine) and Doctor Norman (John Saxon) to continue her husband's work ... and not a moment too soon, as some greedy businessmen after the killer bees' royal jelly tried to smuggle bees to the USA on their own, but they got loose and now start to kill people already. It gets pretty bad before long, but then Hummel and Norman find the solution, and all bees, all over the country, are neutralized.

However, with this success, Hummel starts to ask the wrong people the wrong questions, first and foremost who embezzled Dr Miller's money in the first place to delay research ... and suddenly, he, a national hero if there ever was one, finds himself on the hitlist of some corrupt politicians. He is killed, too, but not before a highly intelligent newly evolved species of killer bees is set free, and these are immune to everything. What's worse, they have an agenda ...

Norman and Sandy (by now a couple of course), having run out of means to fight the bees, now try to find a way to communicate with them ... and find out they want to take over the earth. They are prepared to share it with humankind, but beekind is to be the dominant species.

When Norman and Sandy explain that to the UNO, they are ridiculed ... until a swarm of bees enter the room as well ...

 

One of these films that, apart from a few fun performances by dependable B-movie veterans, hasn't much to offer in terms of quality or originality, and it's not exceptionally accomplished on either a narrative or a directorial level, and the special effects are of the so-so-variety - and yet there's plenty of (probably unintentional) fun in there, as in how quite a few of the bee attacks occur, or in the ending with the talking bees and the like. Though by no means the best bad animal horror flick, nor the most outrageous ... but most certainly worth at least a few chuckles.
