It’s my favorite month of the year: for an entire month, the terrific Grindhouse Cinema Database website is showcasing “Deucember” – a month of classic Grindhouse films!
Here’s a great one to “get your buzz!”
“Well, I must admit that since the curfew, Peckham has been more boring than usual.”
And with that sterling line of dialogue, time to buzz around the campy cult fun of “Invasion Of The Bee Girls!”
This 1973 camp classic has a simple plot: A powerful cosmic force is turning Earth women into queen bees who kill men by wearing them out sexually, and Kathy Hilton, the mother of Paris, is nude in it!
Here is the incredible trailer for the film, including some very funny uses of graphics to cover what they call “Naughty Bits”! –
Thanks to “The Odeon” for posting this on YouTube!
As we are all “sheltering at home”, why not turn to Amazon Prime and stream this goody gem?
As you can see from this movie still, they use what is called a “hivemaker” – you can only imagine the scientific research that went into the making of this classic!
Drive-In Movie Culture Lives!
“Invasion of the Bee Girls” is a classic example of a “drive-in movie”. These softcore, “R”-rated films were shown mostly in drive-in movie theaters across America in the 70’s:
They were movies that offered a bit of nudity, mostly hinted at sexual situations and lots of goofy, campy horror…and dialogue like this!
Dr. Susan Harris: Well, I must admit that since the curfew, Peckham has been more boring than usual.
The great Cult Actress Victoria Vetri stars in the film, and gave us this memorable scene:
After reminding clothed for most of the movie, Victoria is finally captured and the process of making her a “Bee Girl” gets underway!
Vetri was in a number of great cult films, then Her career took a number of strange turns and she ended up in prison!

Clever Movie Producers always found a way to showcase the great cult movie Queens of the 70’s – such as this profession:
“Coffee, Tea Or Me?”
A book by that name was a huge bestseller in the late 60’s, hinting at the wild sex lives of Stewardesses – so of course movies jumped on the bandwagon as well!
