Description by OLDIES.com:
They're big. They're bad. They scuttle along in caverns miles beneath the Earth - until an earthquake opens paths to the surface. Now, these monsters of genus Arachnida are invading our world with deadly force!
With top special effects co-designed by King Kong's Willis O'Brien, The Black Scorpion is horror with a sting more lethal than the king-sized ants that overran Los Angeles' sewers in the classic Them! Can humankind survive these invincible juggernauts? That fate rests on the shoulders of Hank Scott (1950s monster-movie stalwart Richard Denning) as the creatures rip a train from its track, snatch a helicopter from the sky and, in the film's most gripping sequence, battle each other in their subterranean lair. Watch out!
After a series of earthquakes giant scorpions are released from subterranean caverns miles deep. They seek human flesh to sate their hunger.
In Mexico, volcanic emissions release a horde of gigantic deadly scorpions, causing mayhem, death, and chaos for a nearby town. Can the rampaging arachnids be stopped'
- The special effects for this film were executed by Willis O'Brien, who created the effects for 1933's "King Kong".
