Added DiffLines:

* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: A soldier fires a giant makeshift [[ShockAndAwe taser]] at the killer scorpion, and not only does he miss the target, he kills himself trying to reload the cannon (see WhatAnIdiot on the YMMV tab). It's up to Dr. Scott ([[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 clapclapclapclap]]), a ''[[ScienceHero geologist]]'', to finish the job.


Added DiffLines:

* ShockAndAwe: The key to destroying the scorpions is to rig an armor-piercing shell with electrical cables and shoot it into the scorpions' necks (wait, ''what'' necks?) to electrocute them.


Added DiffLines:

* TagalongKid: Juanito, who stows away with the heroes' expedition to find the killer scorpions; he even ''refers to himself'' as a stowaway. Ostensibly he's come along to help, although what exactly he thinks he can contribute is never brought up even to be dismissed. He graduates to full-blown [[TheLoad Load]] status when he stows away ''again'' with the heroes' expedition down into the scorpion cavern, where he is menaced by the monsters (imagine!) and must be rescued.

The special effects, by Willis O'Brien, were considered cutting edge back in the day it was released.

Not to be confused with the 1995 television series ''BlackScorpion'', nor the various sequel series and DirectToVideo movies that followed it. Nor, indeed, to the infamous {{WCW}} storyline from the early 1990s.
