The film displays a single-minded love of exploitative trash, and you're rarely more than a minute away from a grisly death, a noisy scare, or a gratuitous breast shot. Roll on Spiders In A Hovercraft... Full review.
Okay, but not as likeable as, say, Piranha, Tremors, Slither, Anaconda, Eight-Legged Freaks or the 1973 TV movie Horror at 37,000 Feet... Full review.
There are two things you need to know about “Snakes on a Plane” that I’m going to share with you now: 1. It has the potential to supplant “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” as the greatest audience participation movie of all time. 2. It is, simultaneously, one of the worst and best movies I’ve ever seen...

This is a coolly efficient, tongue-in-cheek horror-comedy about poisonous snakes on a rampage at 30,000 feet. The snakes sink their fangs into a tongue, eye, penis, breast and ass.

1/2 And so after all the Internet hype about those motherfckin' snakes on that motherfukin' plane, the flick itself is a murky stew of shock effects repeated so often that the suspense quickly droops along with you eyelids. It's not so bad that it's good. It's so bland that it's boring. Not even worth a hissss... Full review.
