Snakes on a Plane
7 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How does something like this get made? Did anyone read the script before deciding to commit their money, time, and/or resources? Holy moly is the writing bad on this mash-up of sci-fi standards. The concept is beyond lame. The dialogue is so bad that it's hard to not laugh out loud at it. Character development? None.

The beginning is a total rip-off of the Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", more specifically the 1983 film remake. That's where the similarities end. The Twilight Zone versions are original and classic. They were taught, tense, dramatic, hair-raising AND funny. This piece o' crap has none of those qualities. It is slow moving, has no tension, and is utterly predictable. "Vessel" very quickly becomes an alien "Snakes on a Plane".

The directing is sub-par, but hey....whaddya want from a Kickstarter funded short, right? I suppose Clark should be commended for the effort.

The writing, however, is so painfully bad that I can't understand why anyone would want to invest themselves or their money in making this a reality.

The short was written by the Duffer Brothers. I don't know if that's their real last name, but it IS ironically fitting. The dictionary definitions for "duffer" are:

1. a peddler of cheap flashy material (yep)

2. something counterfeit or worthless (check)

3. an incompetent, ineffectual, or clumsy person (bingo!)
