| "The Family Is Everything!"...
In the small town of Bohlen, when a man is swarmed and killed by stinging insects, we know the KILLER BEES are responsible! Young Edward Van Bohlen (Edward Albert) returns w/ fiancee Victoria Wells (Kate Jackson- SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS), so Victoria can meet Edward's family at the Van Bohlen estate and winery. Unbeknownst to Victoria, as we were shown at the beginning, the winery is also ground zero for KILLER BEES! But wait! It's Fall! What are bees doing out? Shouldn't they be in their hive, sitting by a tiny fireplace? At first, Victoria has nothing to fear, other than an uncomfortable dinner w/ the Van Bohlen clan, including the cranky Madame Van Bohlen (Gloria Swanson- SUNSET BOULEVARD), who seems to have a special relationship w/ her buzz-y friends. She even allows them to crawl all over her, and keeps them in a little replica of the Van Bohlen mansion! When another fatal attack occurs, Victoria begins to wonder what's going on. Then, more tragedy strikes, when Victoria reveals a secret to Madam Van Bohlen! Yet another death causes Edward and his family to guffaw, sounding like a pack of hyenas in an echo chamber! Will Victoria ever figure out that she should be several counties away by now? Wellll, this is a Curtis Harrington production, so there's a bit of a creepy twist at the end. EXTRA BONUS POINTS FOR: The "killer-bees-crash-the-funeral" scene! More 1970's made-for-TV horror gold!...
