Horrible Movie
11 December 2004 | by BloodTheTelepathicDogSee all my reviews

I rented this once because Jill Schoelen is all kinds of fine, and I enjoyed the atmosphere of The Curse with Wil Wheaton. But this film, which is a sequel in name only, redefines terrible cinema.

This dude gets bitten by a snake and his hand turns into a snake head, yeah the plots that sophomoric. MASH's Jamie Farr spends the movie chasing after the guy and his less than loyal girlfriend(the tasty Jill Schoelen), but far too much time is given to Farr rather than building the main characters, and showing us the agony this dude is going through with a snake growing out of his arm.

This is completely stupid with absolutely nothing to be recommended. If you're a Jill Schoelen fan, stick with The Stepfather, if you enjoyed The Curse, don't expect a sequel, just terrible effects of a dude with a snake hand.
