The Deadly Bees

The Deadly Bees ★★½

So -- this is directed by the Oscar-winning cinematographer who lensed Lynch's Dune (and several other Lynch films), Room at the Top, and Glory? And that's Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones in that pop band in the somewhat painful opening sequence? And Robert Bloch wrote the original screenplay?

It still wasn't good or anything -- Suzanna Leigh (Vivian Leigh's god-daughter) got plenty to do, which was cool, but her performance wasn't terribly engaging and overall the movie felt a bit flat. Terrible special effects. On the other hand, the sense of place was nice and I was successfully misdirected as to the true villain.
