Because his father was killed by a poisonous snake bite, Les Daniels has a
deadly fear of snakes. Chaos ensues when Les? brother accidentally unleashes
a rare, extremely deadly mythical snake. The snake escapes into Les? small
town and begins to grow at a terrifying rate. Now Les must overcome his
paralyzing fear to help protect his small town against the growing, deadly
MEGASNAKE, which is devouring anything in its path.
At least Mega Snake cannot be accused of false
advertising. The tag line promises that "It's Big, It's Bad and It Bites!"
Yup, it's got that right: this movie indeed bites . . .
And, yeah, there is a big snake in it all right
a huge, 50 foot fake-looking CGI creature that goes around devouring whole
families at a time! Said snake is an ancient and mystical snake which once
harassed Native Americans. Instead of destroying the creature when they
had the chance however, they kept it around on display at a pet shop where
it is promptly stolen and let loose. Snake goes on rampage, the Mayor
ignores warnings about canceling the county fair (it is set in
Tennessee you know), and so on.
Cheap production values,
bad acting and a laughable, cliché ridden script make Mega Snake
the sort of affair that you preferably shouldn't see sober or without
inebriated friends. Avoid otherwise.
