3.0 out of 5 stars This Queen plans to stay young. 7 Jan 2012
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Wasp Woman is directed by Jack Hill and Roger Corman and written by Leo Gordon and Kinta Zertuche. A Roger Corman production, it stars Susan Cabot, Anthony Eisley, Michael Mark and Barboura Morris. Music is by Fred Katz and photography by Harry Neumann.

Janice Starlin (Cabot) is the owner of a large cosmetics company, once a successful operation, the company is starting to lose customers who can see that Starlin is beginning to show her aged years. But hope may be at hand form scientist Eric Zinthrop (Mark), who has been experimenting with the royal jelly from a queen wasp, creating a serum that reverses the aging process. She strikes a deal with Zinthrop to fund his research as long as she can be his first human subject........

Schlockmeister Corman obviously took notice of the success of Kurt Neumann's The Fly from the previous year, for here he tries to bring us the female variant on the sci-fi mix up movie for half the budget. It marks the last time that Susan Cabot would appear in film, this also being the last of six films she made with Corman. For a low budget schlocker it's not half bad, the berserker insect/human science is good fun and there's potent thematics within involving the search for eternal youth, drug addiction and the cautionary warning about man pushing science too far. Even the effects, whilst cheap and rightly kept in the shadows for the most part, have an antiquated charm about them. If only the film wasn't so static, so ordinary, for two thirds of its relatively short running time, then this would be talked about as one of Corman's better offerings, especially since the cast are actually fine, particularly the pretty and stoic Cabot.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much sting, but still okay 23 Aug 2011
By Alan James "Maebuschfan" TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maintaining that wasp waist 11 Feb 2007
By bernie TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Janice Starlin (Susan Cabot) head of a cosmetics company was told the she needs to stay young to promote the product. What can she do? Enter garage scientist Eric Zinthrop (Michael Mark) with a dubious formula made from wasp royal jelly. He explains that "just a little dab will do you." She gets greedy and shoots up with the extra strong stuff. This gives her a BUZZ and can have biting consequences.

3.0 out of 5 stars You're so vain... dum de dum 6 Dec 2011
By All of them Witches TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
One of those films that can very easily polarise an audience straddling somewhere between dreadful and really quite good depending on ones appreciation for the genre, expectations, tolerance levels etc.
Janice Starlin is a fading beauty products promoter of her own range of products (the film promotes her as fading looks wise due to age but there's barely any discernable difference between her in her 40's and her 15 year younger transformation - she looks fine either way)
Starlin co-opts the assistance of a fellow who has discovered the secret of turning the clock back via the medium of wasps royal jelly (not sure whether wasps produce royal jelly though) There are a number of quite bizarre scenes such as when the scientist in question is let go from his former employer he reveals his discovery but his sponsor stands by his decision, seemingly based upon a whim at the time. I would have felt he may have wanted to first check the substance of this amazing claim to the elixir of life before sacking him but naah who can be bothered with that.
Later on in a perfunctory experiment whereby a fat guinea pig is injected with the serum the rodent doesn't just get younger it transforms into an entirely different species, a rat!
For nearly the first hour of the film there is a number of scenes which whilst I largely found relatively interesting, amount to little more than filler. It's a bit suprising and disappointing that more screen time wasn't given to some hot Wasp Woman action, her only really figuring in the last 15-20 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars underrated 27 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
this film is classic...may not be one of the best of its genre but is not a crap movie...it has become a cult classic since it first was released and was probably one of susan cabots finest performances in her career, the poor woman was stuck in the B movie genre til her death in the early 80s.
it has a creepy atmosphere and is very cheesy and quite fun to watch and at this price it is a steal i may consider buying it soon :).
im looking forward to next years film BLACK OASIS where ROSE MCGOWAN will play susan cabot in a biopic of her life until her death...im sure rose will do a good job :):)

This one is okay as daft sciffy films go but after the big build up on the box, the actual wasp lady is a bit of a let-down and there's not too much of her. Read more
