Just watched this. HOLY SHIT GOODNESS.

Doesn't hurt that the insects from the missing scene in the original King Kong are used in it.

Basically, it's THEM! minus the ants, add the Scorpion, large worm and spiders.

Ray Harriehaussen (sp) did the effects for this film. Very Happy

Actually it was Willis O'Brien who handled the effects, hence being able to use the worm & spider models from the deleted scenes in KING KONG.

This is one of the more bad-ass 50's sci-fi, giant bug extravaganza's though. These scorpions put the ants in THEM and the spiders in EARTH VS THE SPIDER & TARANTULA to shame and would fuck their shit up 6 way 'til Sunday!

Love the underground scene, the train attack and especially the climax with the Black Scorpion throwing tanks, jeeps and even helicopters(!) around like toys.:he:

Plot's rather standard and a bit boring, but when the monsters show up, man they're awesome!
