Rotten Tomatoes:
IMDb: 2.6/10

Terrible, lackluster, boring, hideous! These are all adjectives that describe this pathetic excuse for a creature feature. That should have died when it had struggles to be made. Sadly that is not the case and what we are left with a 93 minute long movie that contradicts itself, has glaring loopholes and even worse creature effects.

Here are a few examples. Child get's scared to a catatonic state we never find out about him afterwards. The snake breaks a fang yet still has a full set when ever you see it. Despite it being shown in the first 15 minutes of the movie that it should only have 1 and half fangs now. The good doctor Hosh we never know if he died or not. We just assume he did. But above all else is the freaking end of the movie. That is so damn cheesy and stupid that I could have swore a toddler wrote it.

With Pat Morita going toe to toe with a rubber snake with nothing but over sized snake handler tools. Yep I just blew the ending and for good reason. None of you should have to sit through this alone. With friends yes maybe and that is the only good thing. Is this movie has redeeming qualities to be made fun of with friends. Nothing else is. Sadly this seems to be a pattern with B-Films is they set the bar so low that the only way for them to be seen. Is to be awful and believe me this one is beyond awful.

It is just on the bright side of awful and not the dark side. Which I can not say about some of the other films I have seen recently. With as bad as this is. Seeing the Erik Estrada cameo is not only funny but fitting for how low his life has gotten, and now for the verdict. Do not watch this alone but with friends and a case of beer or a pitcher of margaritas. So that you can enjoy it more and make fun of the fact that this movie is just a crappy creature feature. One that will make Sy-Fy proud to show on Saturday nights as their Sy-Fy movie of the night.

Rating: 1.5/5 Stars
