Synopsis

The founder of a cosmetics company finds that extracts from the royal jelly of the queen wasp can reverse the aging process. As her laboratory undergoes research, she injects herself with extra doses of the formula. However, she fails to anticipate the monstrous side-effects.

Our take

Shot in less than two weeks for around $50,000, this is one of the earliest features from the Pope of Pop Cinema, Roger Corman. A kitschy, sci-fi B-movie about an animal-woman hybrid, The Wasp Woman delights with its cheap effects and even cheaper costumes. Watch out for that infamous finale!
