Storyline

Seismic activity has brought snakes to the surface, where residents are being bitten. Victims can transmit the virus to healthy persons. The military puts the town under quarantine. Local physicians try to control the epidemic, while the military is primarily concerned with keeping the virus a secret. Written by wkmiller704@yahoo.com

Goofs

The respirator masks being used by the hospital staff are not a biological contaminant style, (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) the orange label cartridges shown being used are only for organic vapors, i.e. chlorine, chlorine dioxide or sulfur dioxide etc. In effect, the hospital staff are using respirators no better than simply covering their nose with their hands.

Great story needing better "direction" -- a remake w/refined plot will be a winner!
18 July 2011 | by robkell-909See all my reviews

I am compelled to write about this video now that I've just finished watching it. This is a movie I would recommend others to watch at least "once."

This is not a classic, but it has a good story line and several subplots. It could very easily have become a tear-jerker. I disagree with people who say that the acting was bad. The acting was better than the "direction" (directing) in my opinion.

In the hands of better director(s) and a bit of a more refined plot, the video would have received much better reception.

Personally I vouch for a remake with the above enhancements.
