Critics reviews

The underlying concept belongs wholly to the realm of exploitation, with Robert Carrington’s screenplay trying a little cop drama here, a little gore there. The mix proves wholly depleted of greater meaning, so that the film’s tension revolves around whether or not the snake or the cops will get the characters first. Even a shred of lunacy could have gone a long way for this drawn-out film.
