Made-for-TV thriller for movie-icon Gloria Swanson, here playing California oddball living on a vineyard ranch and possessing a strange hold over the bees that hover there. Grandson Edward Albert and girlfriend Kate Jackson (who were dating when this film was shot)come for a visit and get more than they bargained for. Not "The Swarm", but better. Schoolbuses and flower paraders are not interjected, there is no mass hysteria. Credit director Curtis Harrington with the panache, and Gloria Swanson with the campy kicks (she's mah-vah-loss). It's an atmospheric mood-piece, and the rural locales are refreshing.
