From the Back Cover

A swarm of killer bees wreaks havoc on a California community in this frightening thriller, starring Robert Hays (Dr. T & the Women, Airplane!), Nancy Stafford ("St. Elsewhere") and Dennis Christopher (Chariots of Fire). Chad and Karen Ingram have just moved their family from Boston to the small community of Blossom Meadow, California, to follow their dream of owning an orchard. But that dream quickly turns into a horrific nightmare. Just as they and their kids are beginning to adjust to their new life, two teenagers from the local high school die in a car crash. When the cause of death is cited as multiple bee stings, Blossom Meadow becomes an idyllic town under siege. Realizing no one will buy the property, the Ingrams have no choice but to stay where they are. But things go from bad to worse when Chad discovers that the bees' colony is on their property. Surrounded by these dangerous bees, the family is trapped and in a desperate fight to escape this deadly invasion.

Product Description

This tv movie starts out very well, staging some frightening bee attacks that are genuinely uncomfortable and scary. Director Rockne O'Bannon leads Robert Hays, Nancy Stafford, Ryan Phillippe and Dennis Christopher through some sharp moments. However, once the attack becomes confined in the Hays household, the movie loses its overall steam. Sure, we care about the family and their plight, but its narrow focus doesn't carry forth the horror of the mass attack possibilities.\nRyan Phillippe is good in one of his early roles, but why in the world does the family put up with him; he's the one who decides to shoot up the primary hives, and then he freezes when he's needed to help out.\nDennis Christopher is cool in his role as the resident bee expert who cheerfully explains bee venom at a packed outside cafe where all the patrons start asking questions.\nNot a bad movie, but one I felt could have been better.

Ryan Phillippe is good in one of his early roles, but why in the world does the family put up with him; he's the one who decides to shoot up the primary hives, and then he freezes when he's needed to help out.
Dennis Christopher is cool in his role as the resident bee expert who cheerfully explains bee venom at a packed outside cafe where all the patrons start asking questions.
Not a bad movie, but one I felt could have been better.

4.0 out of 5 stars The killer bee nightmare. Could it still happen? March 11, 2014
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Made in 1995, this film is good and creepy, but somewhat outdated...we hope. These bees are dubbed "the killer bees" mostly because they swarm in larger numbers and are more agressive. The bee expert played by Dennis Christopher from SK's It, does his role with weird credibility. Now, I watched this before The Swarm and many others like it, and was impressed overall. The 'Nightmare' is still possible, but at this point, less likely. The movie seems to exaggerate the reality somewhat...or do they?

5.0 out of 5 stars question about movie January 14, 2014
By JESSICA
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am trying to find the one Bee movie where all the bees kill the people but I don;t know the name of it exactly however I remember some parts of the movie. See I haven't seen this movie for years ever since back int he 90's when I was about 7 or 8 years old. So please someone help me find this killer bee movie, the right one I seen. I remember seeing a guy with a gun on a farm like growing fruits and seeing a bee hive to shoot at and while he is there is another guy with a pickup truck there driving his way as I remember. Then after all that almost to end of movie there is a little girl who is allergic to the bees stinging her and she needs medical help. Please someone help me find this movie the name of it. I think it maybe this one called Deadly Invasion but not sure. Thanks everyone.
