Assassinio al cimitero etrusco (Translation: Murder in the Etruscan Cemetery), internationally released as Scorpion with Two Tails, is a 1982 Italian thriller-horror film directed by Sergio Martino (credited as Christian Plummer), and co-starring John Saxon and Van Johnson.[1]


Joan has nightmares of Etruscan sacrifices. She knows very well the Etruscan language and her husband Arthur is an archeologist studying Etruscan tombs. In a nightmare she foresees her husband's death. And Arthur is then killed with the same way the Etruscans killed their sacrifice victims, convincing her that someone (or something) may be after her.
