Description by

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!

Product Description:

After a series of earthquakes giant scorpions are released from subterranean caverns miles deep. They seek human flesh to sate their hunger.

Plot Synopsis:

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'


Production Notes:

  • The special effects for this film were executed by Willis O'Brien, who created the effects for 1933's "King Kong".

Rating 5.0 50'S HORROR CLASSIC!! Movie Lover: from Twin Falls, ID US -- March, 6, 2006

This is probably one of the best 50's giant bug movies ever made!! Richard Denning stars with sexy Mara Corday as they battle hordes of giant scorpions from beneath the earth. I remember this movie as a child and still love it very very much today. If you buy this item, you will not be disappointed.
