Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973) - Bee Girls in a Z-Movie

Ok, really, once you've seen the poster for this flick over there on the right, do I really have to waste a lot of words talking about it? This is, simply put, 70's exploitation fare at its most typical. You've got a mad scientist (played, for a change by a woman, Vicoria Vetri), you've got quite a few chicks getting nekkid (I will point out that most of the supposed "Bee" girls are actually C's or D's), you've got some pretty cheap special effects, you've got a whole bunch of white goo, and you've got... well, yeah, that's pretty much what you've got.

One quick note that I will make, the movie was actually written by Nicholas Meyer, who would go on to acclaim for writing one of the best Sherlock Holmes pastiches, The Seven Per Cent Solution, for adapting and directing the film Time After Time, and for having a hand in the writing of and/or directing three of the first six Star Trek movies (including The Wrath of Khan). Hey, everybody's gotta start somewhere, right?
