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 »

proof that the best films now-a-days go str8 to video
23 February 2002 | by (checking my toilet 4 rattlers) – See all my reviews

Easily the best movie of 2001; I've seen my share of snake movies from garbage classics like Anaconda to utter crap like Silent Predators but this blows all of them out of the water. The storyline is very intriguing about a lethal disease spread by rattlesnakes. Treat Williams is great as always, and Fred Olen Ray's direction shows that he could be another John carpenter if people wouldn't write him off for his cheesy (yet wonderful) ideas.
