Storyline

Prepared for a routine flight across the Pacific, lonely widower and pilot Jack Russell maneuvers his jet into the sky and unknowingly tightens the gap between his passengers and doom. Lying dormant in the craft's hull is a secret shipment of genetically engineered Scorpion fetuses, the creation of Dr. Jennifer Ryan and her team of biochemists for the purpose of discovering a vaccine. At the same time, Yaffi and his brother Sudan sneak onto the airplane speaking in hushed tones about a conspiracy of their own; to smuggle themselves into America. One of Jennifer's most trusted colleagues uses this opportunity to break into the cargo hold and steal the Scorpions. Each fetus sleeps submerged in a jell liquid inside its own glass container. While transferring the fetuses from their secure metal unit the scientist is discovered by security. A desperate fight ensues, containers break, and the Scorpions open their ugly black eyes.

Unspeakably horrible.
28 May 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

On a flight to Los Angeles,a group of genetically enhanced scorpions that were smuggled aboard escape and wreak deadly havoc.As the pilot struggles to prevent the plane from crashing into the icy Atlantic,the passengers must battle the poisonous creatures."Tail Sting" is so incredibly awful that I couldn't even finish it.I watched one hour and fast-forwarded through the rest of this abysmal garbage.The scorpions look terrible,the plot is extremely dumb and the acting is painfully bad.The worst aspect of "Tail Sting" has to be the editing,which shows us a few boom mikes and is simply amateurish.I can't believe that such piece of horse crap gets a wide release and some Italian cult horror films are still unavailable.Avoid this trash like the plague.1 out of 10.
