Movie Info

A young boy from an abusive home steals an ancient demonic writing tool, only to learn that vengeance dies hard after conjuring a killer serpent that eats his father alive. Alan Cade was ten years old and frightened. His father was a violent alcoholic, and in order to avoid contact, Alan and his best friend Becky would embark on long adventures though the local forests and farmhouses. On one such excursion, Alan and Becky wandered into the dilapidated hut of Crazy Kirabo, an elderly voodoo priest. Before leaving, Alan swiped a box containing the Kulev Stick, an evil drawing tool used for revenge. Returning home to find his father in a drunken rage, Alan draws a giant serpent and is shocked to see the creature slither out from the earth and bite off his father's head. Terrified, Alan buries the Kulev Stick in the ground near their home. Flash forward 20 years, and Alan is married to Becky and living in his childhood home. When Becky is accidentally killed by a group of reckless, vacationing teens, the grieving Alan uses the Kulev Stick to awaken the bloodthirsty serpent once again. Now, as the serpent begins killing the vacationing teens, it's up to Crazy Kirabo's grandson Nick (DMX), an Army special ops veteran, to destroy the creature and break the cycle of vengeance.

Audience Reviews for Lockjaw: Rise of the Kulev Serpent

I don't keep my ear close to the hippity hop rap circuit. But wasn't DMX once respected and respectable? Hard to imagine when appearing in shit like this. Obviously I enjoyed it, it had a poor CGI monster, some terrible acting and some of the worst lines I've ever heard. However, even bad has been done better. Unlike Komodo, Carnosaur 3 or Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, I wont even bother rewatching this one. At least, not for a while. "I'm sorry about your wife but that was an accident. You drew us to death, that sucks."

Pumpkinhead's plot is stolen for the concept of "rapper vs. Giant snake"....yeahhh...but at least the snake looks cool, he has the head of an alligator

Wow...just wow. Carnivorous (formerly Lockjaw: Rise of the Kulev Serpent) is basically Pumpkinhead, minus the clever acting, writing, special effects, direction, etc, etc. A long time ago (never states it; we have to guess), a boy and girl steal a voodoo pen from a voodoo witch doctor neighbor and his kid. Boy takes pen home and draws a giant crocodile/snake hybrid monster eating his abusive father...which happens moments later. Now, many years later, boy and girl are married and living together happily until a group of rascally and moronic youths run girl over (WITHOUT ANY OF THEM NOTICING!!!! LOLWTF?) and boy gets drunk with liquor and vengeance and draws picture of them getting eaten by same monster. Now, monster starts killing them left and right (but not quick enough!). It's up to boy, his neighbor DMX (equipped with a bazooka), and the remainder of robots posed as human actors to kill Lockjaw. Horrible, Horrible movie. I try to find the good in every film I see, no matter how bad it gets trashed by others, but there was no redeeming quality to this film. Everyone in it annoyed the hell out of me. How are you going to have sex with your underwear still on? That's bologna, just like this entire fucking movie. Hated it.
