A refreshing dose of horrific humuor
22 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

The opening says it all. You've just stepped into another one of those let down b-movies you hoped was at least going to be fun, or so it wants you to think. Snake Island, however, slowly slithers its way into your favor with a snappy dose of playful fun. In a day when the art of the B-film is dead, comes a b-budget parody at its serpenty finest.

You could not ask for a better set up: A few tourist and guides get stranded on a insland in the middle of an Africa with a wonderful little get-away spot inclusive. What the owner fails to mention is the native myths of the island's deadly reptilous fiends. Let the paryies, sex, and untimely deaths begin.

The genre is clear, formuliac, and far to predictable with the exception of one key element most movies of this genre lack: The snakes have personality. From slithering in to decide who to kill based on personality to some histarical dance numbers, these slimey devils have a personality more authentic than any low budget fright flick in decades.

To those of us in the movie community that enjoy slapping fun onto the generics of genre, Snake Island presents the perfect getaway: A film with a true sense of its own hilarious antics.
