Wasp Woman, The

Wasp Woman is a film about Janice Cabot, a cosmetics magnate, and how her fear of aging eventually brought about her destruction. Fearful of aging, Cabot had a scientist develop a serum from wasps' that when injected into a human, the person would become youthful looking and the aging process stopped. Unfortunately, there were a few side-effects, as Cabot periodically turned into a wasp monster and had to kill humans to survive.
