HappyTreeSpirit’s review published on Letterboxd:
It may just barely be under half an hour but "Scorpio Rising" packs a lot in that experimental and underground movie lovers can drool over. Rock music from the era coupled with various themes such as motorcycles, satanic stuff, nazis, religion, etc., makes for a very unusual and questionable viewing experience. The plus side is that it can upset real life Nazis and the general public. Even the California Supreme Court had to weigh in on the issue of its premiere being shut down by the police. Could be considered widely misunderstood by most but look at "Scorpio Rising" through a contextual lens then one can certainly see the beauty and artistic merit of this short film. Would recommend, especially if you like old school rock music and 'controversial' imagery.
