Trivia

A full-scale python head was constructed and used during filming, but never once is seen on-screen in the final cut. See more »

Goofs

The film depicts a python with fangs, but pythons actually kill through strangulation, not through venom; a python's fangs do not contain enough venom to kill. See more »

Quotes

Kristin: Look, let's just wait it out. Sooner or later it's bound to get hungry.
Dr. Anton Rudolph: You must understand, it's still basically a snake. Even at its size, it can go without a month without feeding right outside that door.
John Cooper: There's not enough food in here to wait that long. And if it did decide to leave, where do you think it would go?
Kristin: Ruby. Oh, my God. The whole town is like an all-you-can-eat special.
John Cooper: And I sure don't want to wait around here to see what's gonna happen. So what do you say? How about it?
Theresa: Well...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
30 September 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I don't think I have ever seen a more stupid movie in all my life. Now I have to admit - I always - ALWAYS - go into a movie or video with my head and eyes open to everything. I don't look at the lighting or listen to the script or look for any kind a flaw in the making of any picture. But sometimes you just want to kill certain characters in this movie. Didn't you. I COULD NOT STAND THAT DEPUTY that kept on pointing the finger at the biker guy as the murderer of those people. This movie was just plain dumb and the ending was even more dumb. It was like they were all posing for pictures and talking at the same time. Acting 101 - this is what this cast seemed to have just finished before starting this film.
