Did You Know?


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 »

Really bad
11 February 2006 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

I love Treat Williams, but I think even he knew that this one the snakes couldn't even digest. Can we say 'ripoff'? Almost right out of "Outbreak", except the only good thing about it was that Treat was in it. I wasted $2.00 buying the VHS. I'm so happy it wasn't more. Overly cheesy, very predictable, badly directed, terrible continuity (really didn't have any), and worse with the script. Arrgh.

I feel pain every time I see one of these movies and wonder who I can hit up for a budget. I'm sure I can do much better. Much. Somebody give me 1M and I'll give you a wonderful movie or two.

Oops, IMDb wants ten lines of text for the comments, so I have to fill this in a bit.

Don't watch it, don't buy it, don't rent, as fast as you can from this movie. It might cause vomiting, gagging, laughter, or anger.
