Black Swarm is a 2007 Canadian suspense film directed by David Winning. Actor Robert Englund plays a mysterious beekeeper who has a secret to hide in the small town of Black Stone.[1]


A widow, Deputy Sheriff Jane Kozik, moves from Manhattan to Black Stone, New York, with her nine-year-old daughter Kelsey Kozik. There, she expects to find a safe place to live. The day after moving, a homeless man is found dead in the tool shed of Jane's blind friend Beverly Rowe. Devin Hall and the entomologist Katherine Randell are summoned to help with the investigation. Devin is Jane's brother-in-law and former boyfriend, and Jane still has a crush on him. Meanwhile, Kelsey befriends the scientist Eli Giles, who has developed genetically modified wasps for the army as a weapon, and now he is trying to revert the process. When the wasps attack Black Stone, Jane, Devin and Eli team-up to attempt to destroy the swarm.



The movie was filmed in Montreal and surrounding small towns in July and August 2007.[citation needed] It is the 9th film of the Maneater Series.


It was released on DVD by Genius Entertainment on February 3, 2009.[2]


Scott Foy of DreadCentral rated it 3.5/5 and called it "an above average effort from the Sci-Fi Channel that never insults your intelligence even though it does have its fair share of logic gaps."[3] Laura Burrows of IGN rated it 4/10 and called it "an awful film" with "terrible CGI".[4] Patrick Bromley of DVD Verdict describes it as having "terrible CGI effects" and "cheesy plotting and non-existent acting".[5] Justin Felix of DVD Talk called it a "celluloid atrocity", though he stated that it has a "certain Ed Wood B-movie charm to it.".[6]
