The Giant Scorpion - Sci-Fi Short Movie - Andrea Ricca


"There is an energy and exuberance to the film that it is impossible not to be engaged by."


"THE GIANT SCORPION" is an indie sci-fi horror short movie which got over 2 million views on You Tube and is about a scorpion that became giant after the fall of a meteor. In other words: "What is better than a beautiful girl that sweetly sleeps under an ’80s issue of “Fangoria“ magazine and fights monster with a sharp katana?” :) The short movie is also a tribute to '50s movies like "The Black Scorpion" (1957). It was shot at zero budget and without any troupe, with the only help of an HD Camera and a Pc. Writing, shooting, editing, 3D modellation and animation, compositing and post-production are made by the director Andrea Ricca. Additional special effects (Sim fluids and Dynamics) are made by Giuseppe Cilli.


"Italian filmmaker Andrea Ricca successfully channels “creature features”. What is most impressive is that this zero-budget auteur films his productions on a simple camera and constructs the final effects on a home computer. There is an energy and exuberance to the films that it is impossible not to be engaged by. The effects themselves are equivalent, if not better than many straight-to-DVD releases and the shorts feels good." STARBURST MAGAZINE
