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 »

Hmmm ...
2 October 2000 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This was a real 'snake' of a movie! It was pretty cheesy, not the kind of film I usually watch, but, surprisingly, I sat through it. I thought Chris Owens played his part well, though his talent was really wasted in this particular film. The effects were pretty good, about the only good thing about the movie ... and Chris ... he rocked! :)
