It’s Greeley Grindhouse time! Mac Bell and Greeley are showing “Invasion of the Bee Girls” and you won’t want to miss this 1973 sci-fi film. Join us Thursday, June 26th, at 7:20 p.m.
Here’s the scoop:
Neil Agar, a special agent with the State Department’s Office of Security, is called to Peckham, California to investigate the death of John Grubowsky. Upon arrival Neil meets the laboratory’s head librarian, Julie Zorn, and then begins interviewing the firm’s leading scientists. But not long after he begins the investigation things take a turn with a growing number of deaths, and all of them men who died of congestive heart failure caused by sexual exhaustion.
Faced with a rapidly escalating body count, the local sheriff, Captain Peters, calls a town meeting in which the laboratory’s leading sex researcher, Henry Murger, urges the town to practice sexual abstinence. Needless to say the town wasn’t too excited with the idea.
After the town meeting, Neil and Julie arrange a time to meet with Murger to discuss his theories concerning the cause of deaths. But that meeting never occurred. Neil and Julie witnessed Murger chased down and run over by a car with an unseen driver. While investigating Murger’s home in search of clues, Neil discovers a secret room concealing sexual paraphernalia and Murger’s gay lover, Joe, who informs Neil that he saw Murger driving off with an unknown woman prior to his death.
Neil continues his investigation and is met with constant twists and turns. So how does he solve the murders? Who’s good and who’s not? Join us and see how the story unfolds.
Invasion of the Bee Girls was titled the Graveyard Tramps in the UK version. This was the first film venture for writer Nicholas Meyer. It was directed by Denis Sanders and starred William Smith, Anitra Ford and Victoria Vetri. Meyer almost didn’t put his name to the project after he saw it, but was later convinced by his manager.
Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
