Could be titled "Scorpions on a Plane meets Airport" Low budget, but it doesn't look to bad. The score is a real mix of bad and good. Not very suspenseful, poorly acted and thats what hurts the film the most, but not everone is bad. . Very predictable nonsense. The special effects are not very good and the scorpions are really lame. The touches of humor are very welcome.

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.
