Trailer Tuesday: The Swarm

Irwin Allen's The Swarm, 1978

Irwin Allen’s The Swarm, 1978

The Swarm buzzed angrily into theaters in July of 1978. Arriving near the end of the “Disaster Flick” era, Irwin Allen’s The Swarm fared poorly with both critics and movie-goers. Not even a summertime launch, a decent budget and a huge roster of respected film stars could save this tale of African killer bees on the rampage.

Just a few of the actors who tried valiantly to make this movie watchable included; Michael Caine, Henry Fonda, Richard Widmark, Olivia de Havilland, Katharine Ross and Fred MacMurray (in his final film role). Of course, something this awful stills warrants a viewing for the sheer pomp and circumstance. Let the trailer sting you below.
