Plot Summary
When a boat from Brazil turns up in New Orleans with a crew of dead men aboard, local authorities are perplexed. Not long after, Sheriff Donald McKew's (Ben Johnson) dog turns up dead, too, and the local coroner (Michael Parks) identifies the culprit as killer bees. Realizing that the swarm must have come in on the boat, McKew and his entomologist girlfriend, Jeannie (Gretchen Corbett), race to find the hive before the bees can disrupt the Mardi Gras festival.
