A big pot of boiling water and some drawn garlic butter should take care of this.
The very definition of "treading familiar territory," THE BLACK SCORPION is, plainly and simply, a shameless remake/ripoff of the vastly superior THEM! (1954), which was released by the same studio a mere three years prior. It's aping of its template is downright embarrassing and it's inferior to THEM! in every way, save for the special effects that bring its monsters to life.
The special effects artistry of the legendary Willis O'Brien, the movie's lone saving grace.
The stop-motion animated creatures are the work of the legendary Willis O'Brien, animator of the original King Kong and mentor to Ray Harryhausen (who basically became the god of stop-motion) . THE BLACK SCORPION, replete as it is with bland and pretty much interchangeable heroes and long stretches of utter narrative boredom, only comes to life when O'Brien's monsters show up to cause havoc. Seriously, there's really no other reason to sit through it.
The ultimate bad day at work.
