Today’s Feature

MOVIE: The Wasp Woman
Rated: R
Year: 1959
Director: Roger Corman
IMBD Rating: 4.8
Runtime: 1h 32m
Tomato Meter:  🍅 45%
Genre: Sci-Fi, Horror
Splatter/Gore Meter: 1/10 🩸

SYNOPSIS: A cosmetics queen is transformed into a murderous monster after she uses an insect chemical to preserve her beauty.

MY RATING: (★★★) Ok, this movie is as silly as it sounds, but it’s a Roger Corman film, and as a director, his name is synonymous with these quirky movies. I’m sure you’ve seen “The Little Shop of Horrors.”  However, what makes it a classic (besides that it’s in black and white), are the graphics, the monster, and the storyline. It’s a cheesy 1950s horror movie and well worth a movie night.

With all that said …Happy Viewing!
