Swarm of the Snakehead: Quirky but dumb
31 August 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I was drawn to Swarm Of The Snakehead because a) I like dumb monster flicks b) It was on Youtube and c) Because the front cover is an awesome Army of Darkness (1992) spoof.

Telling the story of a town besieged by Snakeheads (half fish half snake) and the comedic antics that follow. You see this isn't your standard dumb scyfy original, this acknowledges that it's a comedy.

The SFX are terrible, most of the acting is laughable and the whole movie is shoddily made but I'm embarrassed to say there are a few laughs to be had.

If you just accept that its supposed to be cheesy and look terrible you might find entertainment value here. Not much, but it is there.

The Good:

Critters vibe

The Mayor was a well played character

The Bad:

The monsters look like angry hand puppets

Things I learnt from this movie:

There is a pop song based on Winona Ryder

The creators are NOT animal lovers
