Oliver Reed and Peter Fonda have both appeare in some appallingly bad films during their careers, but this is the worst of the lot. In fact, there's a strong case to be argued here that this might be the worst film ever made. Yes, it honestly is that bad!
The plot is stupid. It concerns a gigantic serpent captured on a far-off island which is brought to America for experiments. The beast escapes and goes on a killing rampage, but Reed is able to track it down because he shares a psychic link with it after it bit him on a hunting expedition years previously.
I watched this movie with a girl who was terrifed of snakes. Even she found it awful. The snake looks so fake, and the scenes in which it attacks victims are so devoid of tension, that there is nothing remotely scary about the film. Reed and Fonda are in this purely for the money. Their performances are neither interesting or interested, and the chemistry between the pair is nonexistent. I felt insulted by this movie and I wanted my money back after hiring it. Don't make the same mistake as me: steer clear of this film!
