I watched this the other night and I must say it was a lot of fun. A 70’s Nudie movie with a great score by Charles Bernstein. The movie is worth watching for the music alone, a kind of Nashville session with a female chorus, really cool. Bernstein composed the scores for White Lightning, Gator and The Entity among many others. And his music is used by Quentin Tarantinio a lot as well.
The script for Invasion Of The Bee Girls was written by the writer/director of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan , Nicholas Meyer. I guess Meyer was inspired by the term “B Girl” ( A woman employed by a bar to get patrons to buy her drinks), Meyer let fantasy take over and transformed them to Bee Girls. Mutant crossbreeds of bees and women. The sexual mores of the period are on display and are fascinating. There is a very sexy transformation sequence in which the victim is stripped naked, slathered in white goo by other bee women and subjected to radiation, all inside a geodesic dome with flashing laboratory equipment. A great sequence.
Another treat, it features Victoria Vetri, Playmate, actress, sex kitten.
She was later put on trial for murdering her husband. The great thing is it’s available on Netflicks streaming so you can watch it anytime. Check it out.
