    A deadly virus threatens the world at 35,000 feet
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 95 mins
    Retail Price: £15.99
    Release Date:

    A deadly virus threatens the world. The symptoms are horrifying - bleeding eyes, restricted breathing, coma and finally... death. It starts in the Amazon Rainforest when journalist Ann Baurer stumbles on a top secret conspiracy involving biological weapons. These weapons are virus carriers - aggressive, unstoppable and numbering in the thousands - Africanised killer bees.
    An unscrupulous doctor smuggles live specimens back to the States on a passenger plane. When the plane hits major turbluence, a specimen trunk shakes loose and the contents immediately make a bee line for the main cabin. Gabrielle Anwar, Craig Sheffer and Rutger Hauer are among the humans fighting for survival against genetically engineered killers. It`s man versus nature at 35,000 ft!

    Now then, if you like a good old-fashioned `B` Movie (you know the one they used to run after the main feature) may I commend to you the recently released `Flying Virus`. Cert. 15.
    Now without ruining the plot for you, it`s about the failure of the U.S. to sign up to any environmental controls which so outrages the bee population of the southern Amazon.... I don`t think I better tell you anymore.

    If you enjoy a good `B` movie, make a bee line for this at your local video store.
