I really like The Black Scorpion.  I think it has some great stop-motion work, an interesting dark atmosphere and is one of the better giant animal on the loose films of the time period.  Why it never seems to get mention with other noticeable films of the era like Them or The Giant Claw is strange.

I don't see how "Them" is comparable to "The Giant Claw", which felt pretty abysmal for a big studio production, especially with that strange bird puppet.

Oh, yeah. TGC is to THEM what Boloney is to steak.

Oh, and BTW...

I said "noticeable".   O.K. I admit I worded my sentence to make it sound like both films are masterpieces.  Really I meant that when I find discussions of the monster films of the atomic age, these are two films that I often find mentioned.  One for being the classic that it is, and the other for its camp value.  I think more people could recognize the Giant Claw first, before the black scorpion.  The Black Scorpion, to me at least really gets overlooked. I'd put it above say...Tarantula or Giant Spider Invasion

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

Yeah. My first MST3K was TBScorpion, and I laughed my a$$ off. Still liked it when I saw the TCM broadcast. Fun flick, fun riff. A double pleasure for me.

I genuinely like DIABOLIK. 
Ditto THE REBEL SET, THE GIANT GILA MONSTER and TEENAGERS FROM SPACE, rear-projected lobster and all  BounceGiggle
JACK FROST was okay too.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
