Pretty Susan Cabot plays Janice Starlin, the head of a cosmetic firm, who thanks to the discovery of the rejuvenating qualities of wasp royal jelly by an obliging professor, is now beginning to reclaim her lost youthful looks. Unfortunately the impatient Ms Starlin overdoses while attempting to quicken up the process, which eventually turns her into a killer wasp. The movie takes a little while to get going before the fun starts.
Produced and directed by low budget B-movie horror specialist Roger Corman, it's not the best of its kind or the worst. I suspect that in less capable hands the whole venture would have probably sunk without trace, but Mr Corman does manage to produce the goods with the limited resources at his disposal, and the end product is a cheap and cheerful cult sci-fi/monster flick.
The black and white picture quality isn't much to write home about, the sound is tinny (a bit like placing a seashell against the ear). A basic release from Elstree Hill, with no extras or subtitles.
