Sting Of Death (1965)

Starring Joe Morrison, Valerie Hawkins, John Vella, Jack Nagle, Sandy Lee Kane
Directed by William Grefe
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A marine biologist working in the Florida Everglades entertains a visiting group of teenagers, not realizing they will become the victims of a terrifying killer with a deadly poisonous sting.

Though low-budget to its core and lacking anything innovative in performance or direction, I found this movie to be a fun horror flick, making good use of the Florida locations and a suspenseful musical score.  Although there are some ludicrous plot twists and a rather silly reveal of the film's monster at its climax, it's all in good fun, as long as you don't take the story too seriously.
