Thanks to everyone who commented on the “vampire bees” post; some of the stories about zombie bees and similar creatures inspired this list of hypothetical horror movies.
1. Jaws 5: Night of the Wolf
Sharks are scary, and werewolves are scary, so what could be more frightening than a shark werewolf? This 3D IMAX movie features some breathtaking underwater visuals but ends somewhat abruptly after the first full moon, when the shark turns into a wolf and drowns.
2. Hummingbird Horror
Hitchcock’s classic The Birds meets, well, any zombie movie ever made. Zombie hummingbirds terrorize an isolated coastal town; however, because hummingbirds need to flap their wings very rapidly to fly, and zombies move very slowly, all these creatures can do is sit and stare at passers-by. Still, this behavior is pretty creepy, and some people do sustain injuries tripping over the birds.
3. Vlad the Farmer
When a swarm of vampire bees shows up at an organic farm, the veggies turn bloodthirsty. Mostly played for camp (think Attack of the Killer Tomatoes), this film takes a decidedly somber tone in scenes depicting vampire garlic plants and their struggles with autoimmune disorders.
The poignant, terrifying, and yet somewhat pointless character study of an ordinary wolf who, whenever the moon is full, remains a wolf.
