Editorial Reviews

A group of genetically enhanced vipers are on the loose after a break-in at a medical research laboratory. They don't just bite. They eat. Reproducing at a rapid rate, they now outnumber the locals of a nearby remote island who have barricaded themselves in an increasingly vulnerable hotel. With help on its way - or not-- the lone survivors have one chance to stay alive: make it to the shore--and fast.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was a different experience December 28, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm not really sure what to make of this movie. It's always at the very least, something of a relief when a sci-fi channel original turns out to be something other than an uninspired, formulaic monster movie. This was definitely different.

The main drawback is ironically derived from a positive. It's not often the Sci-Fi Channel makes a movie with a likable cast, and in this case likable characters were getting killed off left and right while a bunch of extras were milling around unscathed for most of the movie.

On the other hands it good that the movie had likable characters at all.

On another note, this movie festures masses of snaks, not the usual insect swarm or giant animal. And in something of an oddity for the Sci-Fi channel, there's no giant snakes in this movie.

On second thought, 3/5. In my original review I rated it 4/5, but I'm not sure it was quite that good.

Vipers (Bill Corcoran, 2008)

I'd like to offer my congratulations to Bill Corcoran who, with Vipers, has done something I previously thought impossible: he almost managed to put me to sleep in the middle of a movie I was watching at two o'clock in the afternoon.

Do you really need a plot summary? Well, here you go: genetically-altered (and badly rendered) vipers. Small town. Commence bloodshed.

With the exception of the mildly entertaining Incubus, it's been a pretty good rule of thumb that Tara Reid's name connected with any movie project since Cruel Intentions has been a recipe for disaster. Vipers is no exception. Add the presence of Corbin Bernsen, who hasn't made a good movie in even longer (I think you have to go back to Major League), and you can feel the black hole sucking you in. The best way I can think to describe it is "soap opera with snakes". Except that no one involved in this mess can act even as well as the perennial stars on your favorite soap opera.

Not a single redeeming quality to be found here. Avoid at all costs. (zero)

2.0 out of 5 stars A Poor Excuse Even for a "Genre" Flick October 15, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
About 30 minutes into the movie, Tara Reid actually calls herself (or at least the character she is playing) a trainwreck. Self-parody intended or not, that was worth a star all by itself. Otherwise, the movie lurches in the gutter (it is comparable to some of those dreadful Masters of Horror movies). The story is not that bad (although predictable) but the fake snakes take the cake. They appear so fake that they don't even blend in with the scenery. It looks as if someone has drawn them onto the screen (animated snakes would have actually been MORE credible). And by the way, snakes don't feed that way, either, nor do they travel in packs like wolverines - they need to check their facts. But at that point, it is only a minor criticism. The movie is redeemed at times by scenes of unntentional amusement. If they gave acting awards out for being able to make an audience howl without trying whatsoever to be funny, Reid and Bernsen would be right up there with the best of them.

Hearing your toothless uncle talk politics at Thanksgiving dinner might be more intertaining than this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Thrills and Bad CGI November 12, 2008
Format:DVD
The Sci-Fi Channel produces as many films as there are weeks in a year. Are any of them good? Not really. But that notion has probably created a stigma on the channel, so when one comes along that is decent; people just flat out dismiss it. I mean, you do know what you are going to get when one says "it's a Sci-Fi Channel" movie. As in the case with Vipers, who cares? I'm glad I knew what I was going to get. I watched it with only one frame of mind: snake carnage.

To my surprise, I got actual good acting and a decent story, with characters I was rooting for not-not-to die. And yes, I got my snake carnage.

As with these types of films, we start with a researcher with a good plan on using the snake venom to cure cancer or something but these scientifically-enhanced snakes break loose onto a hapless, calm, quite island called Eden Island. These snakes don't just bite, they eat and devour! Blood, gore, all of that good stuff is here and on any late night beer and pizza run, this would be ideal. Luckily, director Bill Corcoran gives us something a bit more, despite some fun B-movie moments.

Tara Reid stars as Nicky, a fiancée of a dead soldier from the Iraq War. She's angry, bitter, and flirty, all of that good stuff Reid is known for, but somehow she's quite good here. Cal (Jonathan Scarfe) is sent to Eden Island to replace a retiring doctor. He's soon forced into numerous quarrels of ex-lovers and other island drama, all the while falling for Nicky and saving people from killer snakes. Scarfe is really good, perhaps too good for a TV movie-of-the-week, but as such, gives the film a foundation to establishing characters we will care about. Some of the drama gets a tad soap-y, but hey, I dug it all.

Its an okay movie but I have seen better snake movies. The snakes look pretty fake. However, there is a good amount of action. I would recommend I guess.

It's hard to make a snake monster movie.

It's not that snakes aren't scary, it's that they really don't need anything to make them even scarier. Read more
