From the perspective of a 21st Century ... The Wasp Woman is a downright revolutionary act of scathing commentary.
It's poorly written, cheesily acted, low-budget, and completely camp, but because it's Corman it's a touch ahead of its ilk thanks to some clever lines and flavorful directing. Utterly ridiculous but lovable.
Definitely a 1950's style horror flick, yet released in 1960. Surely the last of its hive.
A cheesy 1950s Black & White horror movie, which is prime MST3K fodder. However, it needn't have been this way since actress Susan Cabot sure is one classy dame . . .
Silly, campy, entertaining.
One of Corman's better films, aided by Susan Cabot's sharp presence.
a campy creature feature that also has some interesting themes regarding science run amok and the fruitless human search for eternal youth (as an added bonus, the acting is pretty good, too)
