3.0 out of 5 stars Gwangi in a scorpion suit 9 April 2007
Yep it is the standard big bug 50's sci-fi with a Mexican twist.

We start with the obligatory narrative and a description of what may come. The narrator thinks that volcanoes are evil and bring destruction to farm land. To this land comes a pair of archaeologically strange doctors. They discover a fallen girl (that was just horsing around) and one of the scientists falls in love. The other states "man is born single."

I will not reveal the ugly threat that you already see on the cover. However I think they used them again in "Attack of the Giant Crabs". Also it is fun to look at the technology of the time; they use huge walkie-talkie's, flash cameras (out of flash range), and Bakelite phones. The annoying part of the movie is the kid that will not stay in the car; we all hope he gets eaten early in the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Real Pearl 22 Sep 2006
This old movie is a real pearl for any Sci-fi movie collection, the effects in the movie are expremly well made concidering how old the movie it self is, a lot of work have gone into the movie with restoring the picture to remove scratches and other such annying things, and the sound has been cleaned up as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem 12 Aug 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The eruption of volcanoes is followed by the discovery of cars and a house wrecked by some mysterious beast. Before long there are giant scorpions coming out of a hidden cave deep below the ground to feed on the local people.

This is without doubt a classic amongst the "giant mutated invertibrate" films. The scorpions are well-made and genuinely creepy stop-motion, and the film features cameos from a spider-like beast and a giant worm-like monster. These two models are the ones originally used in the missing King Kong "spider pit" sequence. The scenes underground give you a real idea of what the spider pit sequence must have been like. A first-class film, and it also comes with extras such as the stop-motion dinosaur sequence from "Animal World".

Another Creature Feature -this time it's a salivating giant scorpion! If taken with the massive pinch of salt with most other 50s movies. It's for these lovers of the films that gave many people in the 50s nightmares but unlikely to do that nowadays. No blood ,no swearing Good fun but unfortunately only available on American import
