Movie Info

Dr. Burns (Joseph Ruskin) is experimenting with snake venom as a means of controlling violent tendencies in humans when things go wrong and a giant cobra escapes from his lab and into a small town. Snake-bitten bodies turn up everywhere, and the mayor of the town, Ed Biddle (Hoyt Axton), wants things hushed up to protect the town's upcoming microbrewery festival. Expert reptile wrangler Nick Hashimoto (Pat Morita) is then hired to bring in the snake before things spiral out of control.

    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.

    If Morita is not the most WTF, flat-out hilarious nonsensical and random element in any bad film, then pigs can fly. The Carnosaur heritage is here!!! Muahaha! 13/100
