"The Bees" is a 1978 disaster-horror film directed by Alfredo Zacarías. The movie is set in a dystopian future where African killer bees have invaded the United States. A brave scientist played by John Saxon is tasked with finding a solution to this ecological crisis, while the government and military attempt to contain the deadly bee threat. The film explores themes of environmental destruction and human interference in nature, using the terror of a bee invasion as a metaphor for the consequences of unchecked environmental exploitation. It's known for its campy and over-the-top portrayal of the bee attack, making it a cult classic in the realm of B-movies.
