  • If I had to guess, they were going for a combination of Ridley Scott's "Alien," Jack Arnold's "Creature from the Black Lagoon," and the Zucker Brothers "Airplane" -- and, by God, they succeeded!

Audience Reviews for Tail Sting

    This film is 100 percent funny, not sure if its supposed to be but it was a riot. A drive in type film that just made me laugh from start to finish. Scorpions are being brought back from South American, when someone gets in cargo hold to find out what the good Dr is bringing back, of course they get out of jars and grown into giant scorpions and run a muck on the plane. Its just a fun movie. Don't expect to much, go in looking for a laugh. 4 Stars been a long time since I laugh this hard.
