Bad Movie Review: Mega Snake

You guys wanted movies? I'll do you one better. Bad movies. Yes, there's nothing quite as entertaining as a bad movie. When it's done right, of course. Mega Snake is one of those movies. You'd think it would be one of those things where a snake falls into a vat of atomic nuclear goo, grows huge, and attacks major metropolitan cities. But you'd be wrong. No, Mega Snake has no epic scientists or over the top military campaigns. Instead it takes place in some backwater redneck town in which some mystical Indian snake escapes and eats all the farm animals. And ma. Poor ma. I mean, it's good because it's different and it comes off cheesy in a good way because it tries to be serious and fails. But I can't help feeling that this movie would have been ten times as awesome if the main characters were these two random redneck dudes that live in the woods. They really steal the show. Somehow, they craft a flamethrower out of a barbecue grill and go snake hunting in an armored truck with a megaphone. Epic. You never really care about the characters (except poor, poor ma) and, yes, everyone pretty much dies at the end. I normally wouldn't ruin a movie like that, but you can see it coming from a mile away. In fact, you could have probably guessed that from the name alone. Anyway, Mega Snake is a good bad movie. Definitely check it out if you're into that.

  1. that is definatley a scifi channel original and i dont know if anyone else noticed but the guy on the stage in that one bit of the trailer was the fake super hero Feedback from that really crappy show Who Wants to be a Superhero. I thought that was kind of funny, and if you don't believe me go back and look it up. Also, the main actor in mega snake isn't a bad actor, he has just gotten some lousy roles over the years.
