For a b-movie, it is not that bad.
10 March 2003 | by (pembroke,massachusetts.) – See all my reviews

Although this movie had very poor special effects, the acting, script and action was not that bad, and the movie did have a good low-budget feel to it. Fans of snake flicks might want to rent this. So, overall, this was a watchable film that is hammered by bad special effects. I guess I can recommend it.
