Starts as a fun romp, turns into a gore fest
3 October 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A 2006 film that has the appearance of a 60's flick, Swarm of the Snakehead starts out with a special charm unique to true intentional schlock films. The sense of humor and comedic timing as well as skill of the terrible actors is excellent.

Snakehead fish invade a town. Ordinarily I'd skip a movie like this, but reviews stated it was a satire... one review even stating it was family fare.

It definitely is not. What starts out as a fun satirical romp with some chuckles and over-the-top characters and acting, turns into a bloody gore flick about halfway through. Unless you're entertained by such you're likely to be disappointed that a potential high-schlock festival turns into a typical slaughter film.

It starts out great. The acting is intentionally terrible. The script is purposefully bad, with outrageous lines throughout. This flick had real promise as a top horror satire film. Unfortunately it seems the director forgot it was a satire, turning it into a gore-ror film in which the humor is lost and "bad" truly becomes bad.

I would have given this film a high rating if they'd continued as they started out during the first 20 minutes or so. At the midway point the value of the film dropped like the townspeople as it set humor aside and turned into a splatter fest. If one is into nasty gore flicks and buckets of blood this might be entertaining. Anyone else will just find it disappointingly disgusting and a let-down after the promising start. They should have stuck with a winning concept.
