When I was a kid in 1976-1980 in Germany, Armed Forces TV always played a 1960's-70's film where a guy is laying in bed.  Someone on the floor above drills a hole in ceiling, drips some goo over him, then he gets killed by insects, possibly grasshoppers.
Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Sounds almost exactly like the locust killing in THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES, except the victim was female.  If that's not it it you saw a ripoff of that scene.

"[It has] a special Zombie Puppet Cam that lets you see all the people die at Puppet Level! It's one thing to say, 'I wonder what it would look like if a puppet with a dentist's drill in his head ran straight at your brain and just drilled his way right through.' But it's another, entirely DIFFERENT thing when you say 'What would the same thing look like if you were eight inches high so all you could see was this enormous blood-spouting brain?'"-Joe Bob on PUPPET MASTER

It wasn't a female, but definitely a ripoff. And there was a spy vibe happening.  Thanks, I'll call it solved.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
