Invasion of the Bee Girls is a cult classic that is on Siskel and Ebert's "guilty pleasures" list of films not to miss. A powerful cosmic force is turning the women of Earth into creatures with the characteristics of a queen bees. They kill men by loving the very life out of them sexually. FBI agent Neil Agar, played by William Smith, investigates the reports of a coven of "Bee Girls" roaming the countryside killing men. He must find a way to stop them and also keep away from them pleasuring him to death. A dangerous job but someone has to do it. This is a film that should not be missed.
