STING OF DEATH (1965 U.S.) D: WILLIAM GREFE W: AL DEMPSEY P: JOSEPH FINK/JUAN HIDALGO GATO
A whole bunch of college students turn up at a professor's estate in the Florida everglades (the same one as in FROGS?). Here they can party and twist to the music of Neil Sedaka (who sings The Jellyfish Song). But their constant teasing of the scarred lovesick lab assistant Egon can only lead to one thing. A man (Doug Hobart of DEATH CURSE OF TARTU fame) in a diving suit with a big inflated plastic bag over his head, and stinging tentacles with which to paralyze! I think the bag is supposed to represent a jellyfish but i was so busy rolling around with laughter that i'm not sure. And let's not forget the army of smaller plastic bag jellyfishes. As you may have gathered, this one is essential viewing. Grefe's underwater photography is excellent.
