Part of the much vaunted Maneater Series, Vipers is one of the better bad movies with an all-star B-lister cast including Tara Reid, Corbin Bernsen and Jonathan Scaree (Who?). Don't worry, it is still a pretty good movie.
Deep in the greedy corporate halls of Big Pharma, scientifically-enhanced snakes are bred for their venom as treatment for various (and unspecified) cancers. Soon, the sneaky serpents slip out of the secret lab and slither on over to Eden Island, a secluded land of fishing tourism and teenage angst. Oh yeah... old Tom T Hall warned us all; why didn't we listen?
Because the vipers are "scientifically-enhanced", they get a little hungry. Who can really blame them? Hey! A snake's gotta eat!
Soon, homeland security is informed and a realistic and reasonable contingency plan is scheduled: Time for an air strike!
Its a race against the clock as the few remaining survivors try to outwit the voracious vipers and escape before the air strike destroys all life on the island while the evil pharmaceutical corporate strike team tries to recapture some snaky specimens for more shady experiments. Exciting, ain't it?
This is a good Bad Movie that has some really funny moments. Our favorite part is watching the serpents eat their victims; they actually chew! If you like monster movies, it is worth the rental.
