"We balled and we balled and we balled, till he dropped dead."

Invasion of the Bee Girls is a sci-fi sexploitation movie from 1973 directed by Denis Sanders and written by Nicholas Meyer. Being in the public domain, it can be watched freely on youtube.

The premise of the movie is that a Mad Scientist (played by Anitra Ford) has created an army of beauties who seduce men to death. One by one the male victims are killed before the local police catch on to the plans of the infected females.


Invasion of the Bee Girls contains examples of:

  • Big Bad: Dr. Harris is the one in charge of the bee girls and the source of conflict in the movie.
  • Black Eyes of Evil: The primary insect trait of the titular women. When in full Bee Girl mode, their irises grow extremely large and, from at least one Bee Girls' point of view, they also see multiple images in the manner that real bees do. When out in public, they wear sunglasses to hide their eyes just in case they go into bee mode.
  • Covers Always Lie: The film got a re-release in some areas (and on video) as "Graveyard Tramps", with a poster implying it was about sexy female vampires.
  • Death by Sex: Having sex with a Bee Girl is fatal.
  • Exploitation Film: Plenty of gratuitous nudity for both titillation and horrific effect.
  • Gag Dub: The Jaboody commentary veers into this parodic style.
  • Taking You with Me: Stan Williams realizes too late that his wife has been turned into one of the titular bee girls. As he's dying from a heart attack, he strangles her.
  • The "The" Title Confusion: Trailers include "the", though the title card and poster do not.
