Two millennia ago, a Lybian king has a basilisk (snake-shaped dragon), which petrifies people, subjected to the same fate with a golden scepter during a solar eclipse. Both these and several victims are dug up by modern archaeologist Harrison 'Harry' McColl's expedition. Despite a cryptic warning from tribal locals, everything goes to his Colorado university's museum. It's all exhibited during another eclipse, which leads to the monster reviving. Harry and some of his friends must try to petrify the monster again. Written by KGF Vissers

The US flag patches worn on the soldiers' sleeves are the wrong way around - the stars should always face the front, as if the flag was flying from a staff carried by the soldier. See more »

The Serpent King
28 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This morning I chose to kick back and watch a couple of movies on the Sci fi channel. I watched Snakehead Terror first this morning and it was OK but I nodded off twice and I did not feel I missed enough to run the TVO back, however next up was the Serpent King and I am going to have to say this movie is pretty good for a B horror movie. The plot is pretty good and moves right along, the cgi is pretty good, the actors look like they are having a good time and there is a little bit of humor thrown in just for fun. What more could you ask for in a low budget film? I think they produced a pretty good film. I have seen big budget horror films with the best producers, directors and actors thrown at the mix and end up with no redeeming qualities at all. If you consider there seems to be hundreds of big bad killer snaky movies that all seem somewhat the same, this one stands out. So far it's been a nice lazy morning with no one complaining but the cats. Oh what the heck, I am going to complain about something. I wonder if the target audience for the Sci Fi planning group has changed to 20 years old and younger and who actually watches the ghost shows but kids? I have not found one person who admits that they watch the things. It is obvious to me they are targeted at children. The only thing I can figure is the cost of producing shows like the Stargate series. Shows like Stargate and Battlestar per episode cost a million dollars and the ghost shows cost ten thousand dollars, however if they don't do something about their Friday night lineup people will go back to going out and doing something as a family.
