The Deadly Bees (1966)

It's not creepy, it's not scary, it's not bloody, it just is. A singer hits the brink of exhaustion and goes to a farm with a friend who happens to be a beekeeper. Then all of the sudden tons of killer bees seem to be bothering okay fine killing the folks on the island. It's not nearly as exciting as it sounds and that is a tough feat considering it even looks dull by reading about it. The characters are morons and the plot is pretty basic and uninteresting. It's a shame more couldn't be done with the killer bee idea but most films I've seen try to tackle it fall on their stingers (this being no exception).
