Also known as "Invasion of the Bee Girls," this uber-trashy '70s sexploitation sci-fi flick sends a government agent to investigate the mysterious deaths of numerous male scientists at a research lab... he soon discovers that an experiment gone wrong has turned the local females into horny, half human/half bee mutations that kill whenever they mate. Lots of T&A and plenty of random WTF-ness ensues.
Seriously, this movie made no sense but lotsa purty girls get nekkid so hoo-boy, was it fun to watch.
This was the debut film for screenwriter Nicholas Meyer, who went on to direct two "Star Trek" films.
Female lead Victoria Vetri was 1968's Playboy Playmate of the Year, and she is currently doin' time in prison for attempted manslaughter after shooting her husband in 2010. Yikes!

"Anitra Ford stars as Dr. Susan Smith, an entomologist who has discovered a method for cross-pollinating women with bees. The process is very elaborate. A woman who is large-breasted and sexy is chosen to be their next inductee. She is lured into Dr. Smith's laboratory, a bee hive of activity as her assistants swarm about. Their latest victim is drugged, stripped naked and covered with a honey-like substance. She is then placed in a sealed chamber and zapped with radiation. Hundreds of bees are released in the chamber until they cover every inch of her body. A switch is thrown, the bees magically disappear, and the woman is removed from the chamber. The honey-like goop, which has hardened into a rubbery texture, is peeled off her body. Another switch is thrown and flashing lights swirl all around her. All of the women in the lab start exposing and fondling their breasts. Anitra Ford goes up to the naked inductee and plants a big, wet kiss on her. The woman then opens her eyes, which have become pitch black. She has been transformed into a lethal honey - a bee girl!The bee girl's sole purpose in life is to mate with every available male. However, their sting is deadly. Every man who makes love to one dies of a massive heart attack after climaxing. Why Dr. Smith has created this race of mutant bee girls, and what their ultimate purpose is, remains a mystery. I found watching beautiful, buxom women making love to overweight middle-aged men to be entertaining enough for me, without searching for a deeper meaning. Too bad government agent Neil Agar, the original cigarette-smoking man, has to investigate the mysterious deaths and ruin all the fun. Sure, several men died, but at least they died happy! This film has the class to have "Also Sprach Zarathustra" play as the end credits roll. I hope they release this movie on DVD soon, before I break out in hives. Like "The Sting," it's a honey of a movie!"
Fun 1970s horror/sci-fi cheese -- shoddy DVD

"Also released as INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS, GRAVEYARD TRAMPS is a highly entertaining, cheesy horror/sci-fi film.
Many female insects kill their mates upon breeding. I didn't know that was true of queen bees, but apparently it is, at least according to this film.
You see, this government scientist inadvertantly creates a "bee girl" in an experiment. She then goes about mating and killing men, while transforming their wives into sister "bee girls."
This is pre-X-FILES horror, so the laboratory transformation doesn't even try to appear realistic. Instead, the transformation process involves a machine with colored flashing lights, bees, nudity, and some very soft-core lesbian kissing.
Victoria Vetri plays a brilliant scientist helping a goverment security officer investigate the deaths of some male scientists. The scientists all died during sex (you know why). Vetri is a former Playboy centerfold, yet we're supposed to believe she's a brilliant scientist because (1) she wears glasses, (2) has her hair tied up in a bun, and (3) wears a white coat. Whatever, she still looks sexy, especially when she strips, so we don't care if she's not much of a scientist.
This is a fun film, but this DVD looks to have been struck off a VHS tape of an old film print. Seriously. There are some film dirt specks on some scenes. The colors are faded, like an old movie. There's also a tape glitch.
I bought a copy of this film on Beta some 20 years ago, and after several viewings, it STILL looks better than the DVD. Sharper and with more vivid colors.
This DVD also has no special features. Not even a trailer.
Worse, this DVD is FULL SCREEN.
I suppose I could forgive the crappy visuals, because at this price, you can't expect a digitally remastered edition. But I can't forgive the FULL SCREEN.
I'd give this film four stars, but deduct one due to the FULL SCREEN DVD."

"INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS (aka: Graveyard Tramps) is one of my favorite movies of all time! Yes, horrible / beautiful Bee Girls are attempting to take control of earth by seducing, mating with, and killing the poor males of our species! They are also recruiting human females to increase their horrid numbers! Beware! They wear big sunglasses and cover future members (gorgeous naked women, of course) in white, creamy, bee-goo! You could be next! On second thought, no, I'll be next. I hereby volunteer to save you by sacrificing myself to these nasty insectile ladies. If you don't own this film, how will you ever defend yourself against their onslaught?? Buy it now, for safety's sake..."
