1978. USA. Directed by Irwin Allen. Screenplay by Stirling Silliphant, based on the novel by Arthur Herzog, Jr. With Michael Caine, Katharine Ross, Richard Widmark, Olivia de Havilland, Slim Pickens, Fred MacMurray, Henry Fonda. Allen’s disaster movie unleashes killer bees on an A-list cast. A sincere thriller marred by unintentional campiness—a common pitfall of the disaster genre—The Swarm provided yet more satire fodder for Burton’s Mars Attacks! 116 min.
