Terror out of this film

When a handler at the National Bee Centre (French) is overcome by a swarm of deadly South American killer bees, the institute's director (Zimbalist) and principal entomologist (Feldshuh) must locate the whereabouts of recent exports before they infiltrate hives throughout the country. Inferior sequel to "The Savage Bees" has a bee-grade cast by comparison, and a lukewarm climax in which a group of boy scouts are trapped in a school bus with Feldshuh's character, already haunted by the memories of her last encounter (as Gretchen Corbett in the first film) with the black & gold assassins that now engulf the bus as air quickly runs out. This scenario actually presents some amusing possibilities for a twisted mind – is that sexual tension between young Eisenmann and Feldshuh, or just misguided execution?

Grizzly Adams (aka Dan Haggerty) is the sensitive, jilted pilot boyfriend trying to compete with Zimbalist's affections for his former squeeze, putting aside his differences in unheralded chivalry as the trio fly from one town to the next in search of the next catastrophe. If the Feldshuh-Zimbalist-Haggerty sandwich was any more cordial, it would surely be fairy bread, and that's the substance of which this film is made. The "Terror" is indeed out of the sky, and it appears, nowhere to be seen in this film. Aside from the make-up applied to French as the first victim, there's very little inspiration in special effects or action sequences. Experienced director Katzin seems content to allow the events to unfold without cohesive plotting, meandering pointlessly to a bittersweet ending in which our celebrated threesome, sadly, become a pair.

It's a shame that a taut, suspenseful film like "The Savage Bees" serves as the patent to such a bland, lethargic re-production. There's little to recommend here, suffice to say that proceedings are unlikely to offend in any way such is the wholesome, sedentary treatment afforded to this sub-standard sequel.

very entertaining movie with likable characters

call me crazy,but i enjoyed this movie.it won't win any awards or anything,but it is is entertaining and well paced.the acting is okay for this type of movie.it feels like a made for TV movie,but that's not necessarily a bad thing.from watching it,i got the impression it is a sequel,since they showed some flashbacks involving one of the main characters.i found out later that it is a sequel to "the Savage Bees".but it works well on its own,although i do plan on seeing the prequel sometime.if your looking for lots of tension and suspense,you won't find too much here,although there are one or two mildly suspenseful moments.i think the appeal of this movie is the likability of the characters.also it moves at a decent pace and isn't at all boring.i give "Terror Out of the Sky" 8/10

Them are now killer bees

I'm not sure if anyone noticed but the plot of Terror Out Of The Sky seems to have been lifted from the 50s science fiction classic Them. The only change is a different insect, bees instead of ants.

Some nasty South American killer bees have escaped and scientists Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. and Tovah Feldshuh and her pilot ex-boyfriend Dan Haggerty are right on the case. In the same way the ants headed for Los Angeles to build a colony, the killer bees have decided to settle in a small New Mexico town where there is an Air Force base nearby, convenient for dealing with these winged six legged intruders.

The cast truly just goes through the motions here. I'm not sure even the kids playing the Boy Scout troop trapped on a school bus really looked all that terrified. They were more scared of their paychecks not clearing.
