Well, this is pretty insane stuff even by IFD standards!

The plot concerns the Thunder project which has produced a formula that can increase the physical proportions of both plant life and animals to between 300 and 1000 times their original size! Of course, such a scientific breakthrough inevitably attracts the nefarious attentions of a terrorist group led by a chap named Solomon who needless to say, promptly orders his cronies to procure the formula by any means necessary.

As it happens, the attempted seizure of the breakthrough is a failure and the formula ends up in the hands of a little girl......and her intelligent pet snake(!) Well, you can probably guess what happens next..... Yep, said snake grows.....and grows.....and GROWS! By the end of the film the bloody thing is as big as a skyscraper and has caused untold damage to everything around it.

In between all these giant snake shenanigans we find another sub plot i.e. newly edited in footage, involving Pierre Kirby of Full Metal Ninja and Zombie vs Ninja fame trying to track down Solomon; Cue a few fun to watch shoot outs and martial arts scenes as our man takes out Solomon's lackeys first.

If it sounds strange on paper then it's nothing compared to how it transpires on screen! Whilst this is far from the most enjoyable output to spring forth from the IFD stables, it certainly figures as one of the most absurd (which is saying a lot!)

Fellow bad movie fans take note!
