Awful ...wow ...terrible
10 July 2008 | by efman1See all my reviews

Where does one start? Crappy effects...brutal acting.... plot obvious from the 5th minute. Stereotype characters.

Tara Reid. How low will you go? She wore a heavy vest through most of the movie which, I'm sure, was to hide her awful boob job.

Poor Don S. Davis. One of his last films. Maybe the shame of the release was too much for him.

Was there a script? A director? It looked like everyone was given an outline and told to improvise.

OK. I take it back. This is so bad , it's funny.

Go snakes GO!!!!
