Fell, Jumped, or Pushed is a romantic mockumentary that digs into the bizarre real-life disappearance of Sgt. Elmo Warrick. It is an utter bastardization of reality TV mixed with a healthy dose of early Christopher Guest.

A romantic escape into nature turns into the ultimate moment of reckoning when a husband and wife are trapped in a tent with a deadly snake. Unable to escape and with certain death looming, the tent becomes a heated confessional to a cataclysmic truth. Betrayed, the couple finds themselves spiraling into a dark and dangerous space of which only one can survive.
If you are expecting or are after a cheap and flat snake horror where everyone dies in a venom induced fright fest, then pick something else.
This movie takes a simple concept and deliberate minimalist set up and manages to provide a psychological thriller with plenty of depth and multi layered scare moments.
5 minutes of research into Black Mambas will confirm the high possibility of death and very realistic threat of this awesome and fascinating apex predator. Apparently the actors even worked with LIVE snakes on this!
You don't need to suffer from Ophidiophobia (fear of snakes) to jump out of your skin with the suspense the ominous presence creates. The underlying story of husband, wife betrayal will go under your skin even more. Well acted in all its minimalist glory. The final scene was gut wrenching and the act of forgiveness and ultimate sacrifice stayed with me on a deep emotional level.
Agree with this critic: "Serpent isn't an action horror film, but a slow-cooked meditation on a relationship and the death dealing poison of deceit. Serpent is a well-crafted, intimate thriller that will coil around you and never let you loose until the final, death-dealing bite."
