Part Fish. Part Snake. Pure evil....
28 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

The inhabitants of a small Maryland fishing community is terrorized by air breathing snakehead fish in this low budget comedy of horrors. I had the good fortune to see the world premiere of this film. The audience, filled with the cast and crew and their friends and family, laughed uproariously throughout the entire film. I don't believe other other audiences will enjoy it quite as much, but this film certainly does have its share of moments, if you are willing to overlook some out-of-focus photography and out-of-sync audio and the occasional wonky performance. The film does manage to deliver quite a few laughs and some nice performances. The young actors are all pretty good, as are Lisa Burdette, who plays the conniving town mayor, and co-director Frank Lama, who does an excellent job of channeling an arrogant but cowardly version of Bruce Campbell. "Snakehead" also features a nice soundtrack. I do not know if the filmmakers have found a distributor for this film, but I suspect it will soon find a home on the video shelves. Well worth a look if you taste runs to low budget, tongue-in-check horror films.
