The monster snake is actually a Cobra-Rattlesnake creation, the result of genetic tinkering that escapes a lab and causes problems for a small town with a fledgling brewery that could spell an economic turnaround, if it's opening day "Brewfest" is a success. The residents call in snake-expert Pat Morita ("Karate Kid" movies) who tries to execute a plan that will catch the mutated King Cobra with the help of Doctor Scott Hillenbrand and female deputy Casey Fallo.
Note to self: A beer festival is way too important to worry about the lives of innocent civilians.
Is Eric Strada as a gay man organizing the brew-fest supposed to be funny?
Highly enjoyable entertainment right here. The best thing about it is the snake itself. 100% (I think), practical effects. A huge puppet that isn't slow or mechanical. The cast are obviously from the low end of the market, but they give the film more than a giant killer snake film deserves. I really liked the kills, as unoriginal as they were they progressed in a way that didn't always glorify the act. It even manages to cram in a very dramatic scene between Pat Morita and a huge cobra and Erik Estrada being as camp as Christmas. That's impressive film making.
