Sting of Death
Made in Florida in the mid-1960s by exploitation legend William Grefe, STING OF DEATH follows a group of college students who travel south to Florida on spring break with their friend Karen, whose father, Dr. Richardson, is a marine biologist studying jellyfish. At the party, Karen’s friends insult and ridicule Dr. Richardson’s assistant, Egon, who is in love with Karen. Egon creates a murderous jellyfish mutant which begins a killing spree and eventually brings Karen to his secret laboratory in the swamp.

“Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello aren't in this, but if they were, they'd probably be the coeds that get murdered in the pool or who die when the hospital-bound boat sinks.”—Evan, LETTERBOXD
