Black Scorpion

First appearance: The Black Scorpion (1957)

A volcano erupts unleashing a bunch of giant scorpions in Mexico in this weird "Them"esque monster-movie! Really great stop motion scorpions fight tanks and trains and stuff, but for some weird reason they have really goofy faces in the close-ups. One of my favorite Giant Bug movies just behind 'Them" and "The Deadly Mantis."


  1. Great job with the eyes, really captures the look.

  2. My favorite part of the movie is that the action is happening in Mexico, and these army trucks are driving around broadcasting an evacuation message in English. Que?
