Critic Reviews for The Wasp Woman
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 . . .
Audience Reviews for The Wasp Woman
A lonely scientist believes he may have discovered the fountain of youth. A vain cosmetic company owner says, "Forget the testing, let's try it out now!!!" In a Corman film the results are predictable, no? Slow moving, lethargic, snail-like pacing will leave you wishing Corman was attacked by wasps (which, btw, are never shown once in the film, but rather bees, go figure). Pass this stinker by.
Taking a break from the Christmas Movies as I await Blockbuster and Netflix to get off there butts and keep the movies coming via the mail. (Economy must be doing well as Netflix is raising there prices). Here we have the 1959 movie by Roger Corman. Its about a women who is head of a cosmetic company and she wants a new product which produces young looking skin, this part is played by Susan Cabot (This was her last movie until 1970 a 11 year gap.), what she finds is a crazy professor who takes the royal jelly from a wasp and thinks he has the product, but oh no something goes wrong as the royal jelly turns Susan into a wasp, Go figure, who would have know. A Black and White drive in Special still worth the watch and 3 1/2 stars.
This low budget sci-fi horror movie has an interesting story, but that's all that I like about this movie. It's pretty good, but it could have been a lot better.
