| Worst of the worst.
I had the misfortune to watch a Spanish dubbed version of this movie. If the performances are horrible, the Spanish dubbing make them even worse! Seriously, the dubbing is laughable! You can't take seriously a movie when Mexican actors try to imitate the Cuban, English, or Arab accent.

Claudio Brook looks creepy every time he appears on screen. I don't know how John Saxon (Dr. John Norman) got involved in this mess and his acting is certainly bad.

The f/x are laughable. Poor production values were used for a movie that intended to be a huge hit.

We shouldn't accept this kind of crap! Probably other people find it amusing because they're not used to this kind of ultra low budget movies. The worst thing about the movie is that it tried too hard to be a decent movie. You can say it failed.

Avoid "The Bees" at all costs!

Not even Mystery Science Theater material.
