"Tail Sting is unabashedly a grade B monster movie, but writer Tim Griffin does such a fantastic job with the dialogue that it comes across as the campy spoof it is supposed to be. Some of the lines are due to become classics. There are a few bum scenes, like the strange sex scene under the floor of the plane, but all in all it's definitely worth renting. The hackers at the end -- Griffin also plays one of these -- are great. And the two Middle Eastern characters -- actually created before 9/11 -- even make you think about profiling in a whole new way. Move over Rocky Horror Picture Show. Tail Sting is a "learn the lines and play the parts" kind of campy fun."

"I'm pretty sure the creators of "Tail Sting" were well aware they were making a turkey. I mean, who could have written this script with a straight face? And those obviously fake scorpion puppets? Just the icing on the cake!
Aside from the God awful credit sequence that had me feeling carsick, "Tail Sting" is a lot of fun. Just as long as you go into it with the right attitude. Don't expect a tense high tech thriller, in other words."

"I read about this on a bad movies website, and it seems there has been a resurgence of killer-creature flix. The story was an interesting idea, geneticall-modified scorpions causing havoc on an airliner, but when the creatures became GIANT RUBBER ONES, I was in hysterics. The SFX here could have been done better by a two-year old. Continuity gaffes galore - Melbourne in New South Wales, Australia(???), the plane was a 737 on takeoff but became a Tristar in mid-flight(with the interiors of a 747 and a larger cargo hold which the passengers had easy access to. There was even a subplot of two asylum seekers who became the heroes of the day saving the airliner and a chance to make utterly racist jokes at their expense; the girl who messed up the team's chance to be world champions making good, a mad scientist out for profit from the GM scorpions and basically I did not care a jot who lived or died. The script is right out of a bad Nu Image killer-animal production or a grade Z 1950s SF flick; and this ranks as one of the worst airplane movies since HORROR AT 37000 FEET(1972). However, if awful movies are your thing for a right good laugh, this may be for you. I can safely say it is at least funny, perhaps funnier than many so called comedies released in the same year;"
