Better than it should be

Arriving to be the town's new doctor in the Pacific Northwest, a local finds the townspeople suddenly bombarded by a series of attacks by a special breed of genetically-engineered vipers that are used in the making of a miracle cancer drug, and soon helps them get away from the deadly creatures.

This one wasn't bad at all, and actually had some good parts to it. One of the best parts is that the film really gets a lot of good stuff from the snakes in here, starting with the fact that real snakes are used for the majority of the scenes here, as this a big step up from the usual Sci-Fi Channel scenes where the obviously fake creatures are shown, and showing the real snakes being in the action makes them work nicely. The fact the snakes are shown with a love to swarm victims and attack in high numbers is another big positive, which makes them really dangerous and allows for some pretty good scenes. There's a lot of fun to get from that behavior with plenty of biting all over the body, a savage-looking feasting sequence and rather good stalking scenes in here making for a series of pretty tense showings. The last plus is that there's a lot of action present in the film, as the snakes here are loose really early, tending to a lot of big scenes here. The initial attack on the town is pretty well-done including where they're forced to take cover despite not knowing what's going on that includes several really good sequences, from the attack at the police station to the cover in the van and finally the big part, where they find themselves forced out of the van and across the ground to shelter nearby with the snakes nipping and leading at everything that moves. There's also plenty of fun to be had from the opening in the lab when they get loose and the big attack at the bridge, while the ending attacks are the most fun. There's several fun swarming scenes on the escaping townspeople, a couple of inventive scenes that show them all battling back at the snakes, and all of the fun of the confrontation in the greenhouse is superb. From the stalking of the victims through the walkways through to the way the snakes are always present and manage to present great obstacles for them, and along with the fun kills present in the scene, and film overall, make for some fun times. While these are what make it really fun and enjoyable, there wasn't much else wrong with this one. The biggest issue here is the usual flaw regarding Sci-Fi Channel films about the utterly atrocious special effects for the snakes is still in effect for this one. The snakes in here, despite looking much better than usual, is still plagued by the fact that most of the time they still look patently fake when the snakes are active and moving about, which is where the fake-ness of them comes about most clearly. They don't look too bad when they're merely staying still, but moving around is not when they look good at all. The other flaw to this one is the fact that there's way too much family drama going on at the beginning of the film. These are in no way interesting or exciting, and all they do is make the film a pain at the beginning, not something that starts off the film on a good note. These here are the film's problems.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Nudity.
