As a minimalist psychological thriller Serpent is top rate.
19 November 2017 | by bodosieberSee all my reviews

In Serpent a trip into African nature turns into the ultimate moment of reckoning when a husband and wife are trapped in a tent with a deadly Black Mamba.

The movie is spartan with only two actors and a limited amount of sets, but does not fail to provide edge of your seat suspense all the way through. The sub story of a wife (Gwyneth) having betrayed her husband (Adam) runs uncomfortably deep and the snake is a worthy antagonist to bring out the demons in the two characters.

Who deserves to live or die? Serpent is top rate, with a heart-quickening score.

This snake is literally death and that is not fictional, but pure undiluted reality which heightens the thrill of the movies story. Most venomous snakes give you a nasty bite and a few hours of discomfort while you drag yourself to hospital, two drops of Black Mamba venom however can kill you in 30 minutes. Highly toxic, fast acting venom coupled with an aggressive snake of +2m length is enough to have most people shaking at the knees. Imagine the actors of Serpent working with live snakes and you get a sense of the authentic thrill you are about to experience.
