INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS - Charles Bernstein - "Graveyard Tramps" (1973)

"Invasion Of The Bee Girls" from 1973, which comes as double feature with "Invasion Of The Star Creatures" on DVD surprised me when I watched it, not because it was good by any means, but because I thought it was going to be a lot more tongue-in-cheek camp like "She-Devils On Wheels" or some similar feature, but instead it takes itself quite seriously, and is actually quite brutal in places!

Admittedly, it is obviously the 70's!

I don't know what it is about fight scenes where guys get their heads cracked up against concrete block walls, maybe it's the dull thud, but whatever it is, it bugs me!!

And while we're on the subject of bugs, this transformation scene, from human to bee girl, coupled with a buzzing soundtrack from the extremely talented composer Charles Bernstein makes for some interesting moments! Charles Bernstein is still working today and has had a long and varied career in film and music of all genres, and deserves another round of applause from us all!!

Hello! I have been looking for an mp3 of the opening credits music from Bee Girls and it is not available commercially. Any chance for a re-up? Thanks!
