Local physicians try to control the epidemic, while the military is primarily concerned with keeping the virus a secret. Written by wkmiller704@yahoo.com

Trivia

Major Manchek in "Venomous" must be related to the general of the same name from "The Andromeda Strain" (1972), another virus thriller. Both movies also refer to "Directive 712", described in "Andromeda Strain" as the use of a nuclear detonation to prevent the spread of a virus. See more »

A neat horror flick with a trick
28 September 2002 | by (China) – See all my reviews

I thought this was gonna be your typical brainless horror flick with the usual anti-establishment drivel to entertain the masses but lo and behold, it weren't so bad! The great unwashed will enjoy it but so will the average filmgoer who wants a bit more for his few bucks. Rattlesnakes get a bad break here but Treat Williams' character deals with them with respect and there is none of this revulsion that "Jaws" had for the sharks - guess we learned a lesson - Mother Nature does have a balancing act somewhere. The usual military stereotypes are villainous but redemption is at hand nonetheless. Enough of my philosophizing, get your popcorn and enjoy this movie. Do not watch it on TV - too many commercials will ruin it, rent it or buy it instead. Out here in HK, I paid $20HKD or about $2.50USD - not bad at all!! ha ha A pleasant surprise - enjoy.
