3.0 out of 5 stars Best Campy Movie Ever February 23, 2008
This has got to be the most indescribable movie I've ever watched. It's a Sci-Fi channel production, and while they hit the mark on a lot of their original series, they kind of fall short with movies. Seriously, though, Mega Snake is FUN. Definitely not the best movie ever, but when you have partially digested goats, cheesy plot devices, and MICHAEL SHANKS, the only answer is to get yourself a copy of Mega Snake, invite half a dozen friends over, order a pizza with everything, and just... marvel. It's one of those movies you can sit there and make fun of through its entirity, and when you get to the end, you haven't really missed a thing. Of course, if you're looking for meaningful and memorable, it's probably a good idea to look elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars "The Dukes Of Hazzard" Meets "Wild Kingdom" May 19, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Megasnake" is a truly awful film even by the standards of the Sci Fi Channel. The film opens in a backwater church where parishioners are in the throes of snake handling. A family is there, and one son is particularly affected when his father gets bitten but refuses medical treatment. ("Have faith!") Since they don't call a doctor the dad dies, casting a shadow across the Daniels family. Twenty years later the scars still run deep with one brother (Les, the smart one, played by Michael Shanks) abhorring snakes while the other (Duff, the not so smart one, played by John T. Woods) still handles them. The tensions are never far from the surface though ("If prayin' couldn't save Daddy, maybe a little medicine could've!") and only their mother can stop the squabbling.

The dumb brother goes into town to see an Indian named "Screamin' Hawk" (Ben Cardinal) to buy the poisonous "Carolina Pigmy Snake," (presumably the Carolina Pigmy Rattlesnake, Sistrurus miliarius miliarius) but quickly finds something more to his liking, a snake described by the Indian as uber-ravenous and the most deadly snake on earth. Duff is there allegedly buying the snakes for his local Church of Christ (a church, by the way, that does not handle snakes) but when the Indian refuses to sell him the baddest of the bad, he steals it.

The Indian says that the snake has three rules, the first of which is "never let it out of the jar." I'm sure you are surprised that the first thing that happens when he gets it home is that it gets let out of the jar, and instantly starts growing through the magic of fantastically bad CGI. The snake escapes. A kitten is the first victim, the chickens next, and it moves quickly on to Mom.

3.0 out of 5 stars I bought it for Shanks March 19, 2008
I bought this movie for one reason, and one reason only - Michael Shanks! However, having said that, both times I've watched it, it's been with like minded friends, snacks and alcohol - the ONLY way to watch it really LOL We had an absolute balst - loved the two hillbilly types who set off to kill the snake, but Michael Shanks was the draw :)

2.0 out of 5 stars The Snake Had the Best Part December 30, 2008
It is difficult to take a modest big snake film like MEGASNAKE seriously. Director Tibor Tacacks follows quite religiously the paradigm of others of like ilk. But he has the innovative idea of scotching any scientific basis for the serpent's appearance in favor of one that incorporates native American shamanism. Long long ago a tribe was beset by a humongous snake and succeeded in killing it from the inside. The heroic warrior had to permit himself to be swallowed whole. After that he cut his way out with a sharp machete. This redoubtable warrior placed the snake's tiny progeny in a sealed bottle with a stern warning printed on it that read (translated): DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BREAK THIS SEAL! And that bottle remained unbroken until a foolish young man broke it wide open. And then the fun begins. MEGASNAKE is a typical SCIFI monster film with execrable acting and shoe string budgeting. There is no one in the film (except possibly for the snake) who even remotely acts rationally. The hero (Michael Shanks) has the good sense not to try to upstage the snake as a screen presence. His girlfriend who is a park ranger has, by an odd coincidence, a PhD in zoology, so she is eminently qualified to offer sound advice to the town's obtuse mayor who unsurprisingly ignores such advice. Now if this sounds like a slithering rehash of JAWS so be it. No one had the gall to name the snake Bruce. The bulk of the film lies in the incredible body count that vanishes down the maw of the snake. Just once I would like to see a big snake film in which I would not see one of the town's drunken yokels witness the approach of the beast and act as if it were some harmless worm. In this case the yokel holds out a hotdog and whispers: "Here kitty kitty." Still, no one watches MEGASNAKE for any reason other than the vain hope that this big snake movie might prove worthwhile. No such luck.

1.0 out of 5 stars "The bottom of the barrel" would be a step up. May 2, 2010
Every time I think the SciFi Channel has hit the quality rock bottom they go and prove that there is still more muck for them to bury themselves under. Interestingly, they've managed to drag Michael Shanks along for the ride under the goo, which is a pity because he's proven to be very entertaining in his sympathetic, heavy roles since the Stargate SG1 series.

Apparently violently masticating household pets and way-too-pretty, but otherwise average teenagers has become an acceptable device for the SciFi Channel in lieu of quality acting and/or subplot developments.

Maybe its the absence of a production budget, or the dearth of legitimate sponsors ("do you owe more than $10,000 dollars to the IRS?") that forces SciFi to keep making these movies that aspire to equal the entertainment value of an infomercial, but I wish i had kept my money in my pocket instead of buying this drecht. I just have to learn that if it is associated with the SciFi Channel it has no place in my library.
