“And out of the smoke locust came down upon the Earth and were given power like that of the scorpions. They were told to destroy the people that did not bear the mark of God. They had tails and stings like scorpions. Thy looked like horses prepared for battle with crowns of gold and wings that thundered like many chariots rushing into battle [SIC]. The people would suffer the agony for five months, and then in those days men will seek death, but death will elude them…….BUT DEATH WILL ELUDE THEM…” Revelations 9: 3-10

This is gonna sting a little.
After a catastrophe strikes Los Angeles, survivors face an even greater threat, thousands of giant killer bees, ushering in the end of the world!
Writer/Director Milko Davis’s ferociously fun ode to golden age creature makes its digital debut June 13!
At this point I can not guarantee there will not be spoilers: Read ahead at your on caution!
Weighing heavily on a biblical apocalyptic theme, Milko (director) leads us into a world of turmoil and catastrophe. Starting in the Sambisa Forest of Nigeria leading all the way to post-modern Los Angeles and beyond.
For his first major movie, Milko has a way of challenging social, economic and diversity stereotypes that could well, in a way, define him as a director (and I mean that in a good way).
What did the killer bees bring to the movie? Honestly, not a lot. The CGI was bad, but not unexpected. The acting ways way over-done, but again not unexpected.
I really was surprised with Casandra’s role. Exceptional performance from Thea Saccoliti. She has the best line of the movie. [Jessie: “Did God say anything about me?”] [Casandra: “Nope, but my teddy bear will be ok!”]
If you are looking for a different kind of review:
This movie has ZomBees in it! Literally, I can’t make this up! ZomBees!
“The multidudes [SIC] who sleep in the dust of Earth will awake! Some to everlasting life, others to shame and disgrace.”
Tsunambee will BEE (Ok, forgive that one pun) available on VOD June 13th and for DVD later this summer.
If you want to watch the trailer for Tsunambee (and you do) It is right here!
