Poor Bastards of Cinema: Killer Bees (2000)

Hiking is not a safe thing to do in movies.  Remember when that random guy got stabbed to death by the heroes of Don't Go in the Woods?  This is another example...from Japan.

In Killer Bees, this random guy wanders onto the field where our heroines are hiding...from some bees.
He's out there when the bees attack again...for no clear reason.  If you didn't read the review, you'll be amazed by their motivations.  What could one bee do to...
OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That has got to hurt!  I guess he's...
Yeah, he's dead.  He's very dead.
What role does this character play in the film?  He shows up, hangs around for a few minutes and dies.  He has no relation to the characters or their situations- he just shows up.

Next up, a two-part look at some Poor Bastards from today's review- Mandrake.  The first one dies for the crime of...working in a camp.  Stay tuned...
