good
14 February 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Nothing to do, I do not agree with the opinions expressed in narrowing site. It 'a film sympathetic, good but not a masterpiece. His focus is on the destructive power of this snake, apparently not convinced victor films. It 'a movie I saw a lot as a child together with a poltergeist trip to the borders of reality is unpleasant, it may be fine even if the special effects were those who were. The first episode is mythical, the film has its charm. It reminds me of the very films that do not know the stories of the crypt films are sympathetic to laugh. It can be fine even though I saw some time ago, is not evil It is good if we reject this film should reject half of the American films including action,. The Votic 4 is too low, give them a chance as you are tough.
