Legendary horror star Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street series, Zombie Strippers) stars as Dr. Eli, a quirky scientist responsible for unleashing a mutant breed of killer bees on an unsuspecting town, when BLACK SWARM flies onto DVD February 3, 2009 from Genius Products and RHI Entertainment. In the terrifying tradition of classic nature-gone-amok films such as The Birds and Piranha, the 12th installment in the popular “Maneater” series also stars Sebastien Roberts (TV’s “Providence”), Sarah Allen (TV’s “Secret Window”), and Jayne Heitmeyer (TV’s “Earth: Final Conflict”). David Winning (Swamp Devil, Something Beneath) directed the terrifying thriller from a script by Todd Samovitz (Wonderland) and Ethlie Ann Vare (Swamp Devil, Something Beneath). Black Swarm will be available on DVD for $14.95 SRP.
Exterminator Devin Hall (Roberts) has seen a lot when it comes to peculiar insect behavior, but nothing like the swarm of wasps that descends on a homeless man and kills him. The attack captures the attention of two women: Katherine Randall (Heitmeyer), an associate professor of entomology; and Jane Kozik (Allen), the new Deputy Sheriff and Devin’s former lover. They join Devin in his quest to stop the deadly swarm. When Jane’s daughter Kelsey meets Eli (Englund), the odd “wasp keeper,” and other locals who all seem to buzz, things get even stranger. Be afraid. Be very afraid, if you see a Black Swarm approaching!
