Movie Reviews

Michael Butts | Martinsburg, WV USA | 08/13/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"If you're a horror fan like me, when you think of the name Roger Corman, you think of some of the cheesiest horror films ever, with the basic ingredients as such: bad acting; weak script and direction; and cheesy special effects. That's why you end up liking Corman's "B" films.
SCORPUS GIGANTUS is not a classic even for Corman, but the effects of the bug are much better than usual, but alas the acting is atrocious. Even the usually dependable Jeff Fahey goes overboard in his role as the head of an elite delta force called in to battle--what else---a genetic experiment gone wrong. Most of the action is set in dark places like warehouses and on a boat, so you don't get to see a whole lot of the bug monster, but when it does appear, it's not too bad. If you're a fan of cheesey films, this one won't disappoint nor excite."
2.5 Not too bad, but....

"Well, at least they have the creatures done right...the rest we have seen
before.... small crew, lots of bullets...blah blah
blah. Roger Corman should find some exta money, add in a extra few scenes
of the creatures out in the open (village.cities) doing damage, and this
movie could have been a 3-4 stars...but a few bucks, stick
to the formula and make more so so films.
Luckely the acting is fairly good, and there is no screaming bimbos.
