Movie Info

On a farm owned by Eve Trent (Catherine Oxenberg) and her sister Mary (Sammi Davis), young archaeologist Angus Flint (Peter Capaldi) discovers a large and inexplicable skull, which he soon deduces belonged to the D'Ampton Worm, a mythical beast supposedly slain generations ago by the ancestor of the current Lord D'Ampton (Hugh Grant). The predatory Lady Sylvia Marsh (Amanda Donohoe) soon takes an interest in both Flint and the virginal Eve, hinting that the vicious D'Ampton Worm may still live.

    True to form, Russell handles the craziest material the best (those terrifying dreams/flashbacks are something else) but that only occupies a small portion of the running time. The rest of the movie is a dull attempt at horror.

    A very good, odd British horror comedy!

    Dood. Ohmygod, do you guys ever watch American Dad? I know exactly how Roger feels about Chockodiles. This is the best movie since sliced bread. Words cannot express how unfathomably amused I was by this movie. It's insane, but it knows how insane it is, and it punctuates its nuttiness with hot chicks and brilliant banter, just in case you weren't already on board. It's a fascinating twist on vampires, since these monsters aren't exactly undead. They're more like venomous immortal snake women who serve this ancient god, and can infect you with thier... hotness? Malevolence? It doesn't matter. Sylvia Marsh is one of my new favorite cinema villains, and she genuinely has a ton of fun exploiting the local archaelogical breakthroughs and generally bringing her evil to the simple townspeople. Snake woman, trippy imagery, valliant swordsmen and the angry angry Scottish dude from In The Loop. I dare you not to get a kick out of this movie. I dare you. My friend who let me this on DVD is totally not getting it back.
