There are bad movies like House of the Dead, and then there are BAD movies like Baseline Killer. Then there's Carnivorous, a low budget CGI-infested monster movie with a dull story, a lousy script and some horrendous acting. This is the kind of movie that would make Orson Wells cry. This Sci-Fi channel reject has to do with a giant snake that eats people... and an alligator head. Does any of this make sense at all? It was weird enough just watching the damn thing. I started to make judgments once the opening credits came up. On the title screen, it doesn't just say Carnivorous; on top of the title, DMX's name is there. So let me get this straight. Is the movie called DMX Carnivorous or does DMX play the monster? Now that's just confusing. All right I admit I'm just nit picking here. It's hard not to when a movie is this bad.

We open up with a kid alone in his room drawing pictures. Across the hall he can hear his parents fighting in the living room. The dad is obviously drunk and threatens to hurt the mom. When he tries to go into his son's room, he sees that the kid has fled through the window. The kid goes to his friend's house and they both decide to commit burglary. The kid ends up stealing this weird artifact that looks like a giant pencil with an alligator head tip. He uses this artifact to draw his next picture. What he ends up drawing is a snake, and it miraculously comes to life and eats the father. We flash forward years later and the kid is grown up and married. Sadly, he loses his wife in a hit and run accident in which a group of dumb kids (who just so happen to be on a camping trip) run her over without noticing.

So as you can imagine, the guy plots his revenge by summoning the monster again to get rid of the ones responsible for his wife's death.

I don't know why I do it to myself with these crummy low budget horror flicks. I could say that this is the worst low budget horror movie in 2008 but I've seen some that topped this one. I need to quit being a glutton for punishment

Spoiler: Here is the whole movie in a nutshell: Paul Cade as a child steals a voodoo pen from a voodoo priest and drew a picture of a snake eating his father and the magical pen brings the snake to life and it does what it was drawn to do. Years later Paul grows up and is married and his wife is killed by a hit and run accident caused by brainless suburbanites that make those horny teens in all those Friday The 13th flicks look like geniuses. Paul draws the snake again and it comes to life trying to kill all those kids and everybody in it's path. Paul calls on the help of Nick(played by rapper DMX), the son of the voodoo priest whose pen Paul stole to stop what he started.

Opinion: This movie is such a wannabe of Anaconda its pathetic. Think about it. Anaconda is about a killer snake, this "movie" is about a killer snake and they both star rappers in them. The only difference is that Anaconda had some form of suspense and Jon Voight to steal the show. The acting here is atrocious. Everybody is so wooden that you want to slice them open and count the rings. Even DMX gives a wooden performance here and I didn't even think that that was possible! I cant blame him though. The script must have been written by overzealous tween-agers because it sure sounds like it was and the special effects are terrible as well. The CGI snake looks like dog droppings molded and shaped to look like a snake. Every aspect of this movie fails. If you like watching bad movies try something else.

When little Alan Cade gets mad at his abusive father he leaves through a bedroom window that is regretfully not an apartment high-rise. After the delinquent teams up with a mongoloid friend to steal a ridiculous looking pencil with an alligator on one end - probably a Florida Gator fan - he draws (poorly) a giant snake eating his father. Not long after, the snake comes to life and swallows him like a mustard slathered Nathan's. Fast forward, thankfully, a couple decades where Alan is married, and has yet to come forward about his criminal history. Karma being what it is, an SUV full of sub-moronic, stereotypical teens speedbump Alan's wife Becky. Naturally, Alan grabs his pencil to draw another snake - thank goodness the kid from Superbad didn't have that pencil! - and the dinner bell starts ringing. Teamed with a rural weapons dealer Nick (DMX) and the leftovers of the teenage fodder, the suddenly penitent Alan must fight his creation that has some incoherent connection to voodoo, or something.

Despite that stellar and highly original concept, the acting for this film is so appallingly low-grade that Ice "Dey Snakes out der dis big?!" Cube comparatively thespian in his Anaconda performance. Speaking of that giant snake movie, this one is very similar. And by similar I mean DMX is a subpar replacement for Ice Cube, and the combined efforts of the rest of the cast don't even measure up to Owen Wilson's nose, much less Voigt's presence, Stoltz' hair, Wuhrer's beauty, or J-Lo's derriere.

This movie is an insult to Pumpkinhead, Children of the Corn, and Anaconda all at the same time. Trust me on this.
