Vipers is a proper B grade monster movie with some pretty good special effects and acting for such a straight to DVD type of movie.

The plot has the standard government agency screw up which results in a pack of genetically altered, super hyper vicious snakes escaping from the lab. The snakes head to an inhabited island where they proceed to kill the town's people. The survivors hold up in a hotel as the government send in a team to capture one of the specimens and destroy the rest. The snakes don't cooperate and the team and the town's people have to team up to get off the island before the snakes head for the mainland.

There are some surprises thrown in and the occasion shock scene. There is a pretty descent sub-plot involving a romance for the Tara Reid character and the expected betrayal from the government flunkies, overall an average creature feature not the best but not the worst I've seen.

This is a fairly standard creature feature flick, with an okay but original plot, reasonable special effects, some TV-friendly gore and Corbin Bernsen who usually brighten up these sorts of films.

The film is marred by lots of dark scenes and a couple of actors with grating voices I couldn't quite hear. A note to SyFy; put a subtitle track on your DVDs and on your TV channel, especially if you are buying films starring actress

It was a different experience 28 Dec. 2008
By Bakuryuu Tyranno - Published on Amazon.com
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.

One of the worst Sci-Fi Original Movies I've ever seen, and that's saying something. 10 Oct. 2008

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)

A Poor Excuse Even for a "Genre" Flick 15 Oct. 2008
By Cory T. Shaeffer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

After the Slither Comes the Slaughter... 19 Jun. 2009

Vipers: DVD Review

Grade: C+

Vipers was one of those Sci-Fi channel original movies that premiere on Sci-Fi Saturday; it's basically were they put their best movies. I love Sci-Fi's Saturday movies--some of my favorite Sci-Fi channel movies have come from there, like Sea Beast and Wyvern--and they almost always have some pretty awesome plots.

Vipers is no exception--the plot may not be original, seeing that it is close to Guy N. Smith's Snakes--but I love plots like these. A group of genetically altered vipers--and by genetically altered, I mean made about 100 times more vicious than normal, and they now have an appetite for human flesh--are accidently set loose on a town called Eden. Since the town is on an island, the snakes have nowhere to go, and start feasting on the locals.

The locals, including an extremely annoying Tara Reid playing an even more annoying character who is growing pot in her garden, join up with each other to try and stop the snakes, along with save their own lives. Then--of course--the government comes in, and wants to wipe out the whole town, getting rid of the menacing snakes before they can reach the mainland.

Yeah, it sounds cool, but Vipers just has too many problems to keep it from being cool. First of all: the characters. They are all stereotypes, and are all annoying. (You just want them to die at the hands of the snakes...) I think the only person that convincingly played their role without being annoying was the lady scientist who helps the townsfolk. Second, the snakes look terrible. They are all CGI, but they look worse than a typical video game's graphics. Third, the plot, as great as it is, is way too predictable. Couldn't they have thrown in something more original once in awhile?

Fourth is the most important one: they need to get their facts straight. The vipers don't act like vipers, and every action they make is something that vipers don't do. (The vipers start eating people--I don't think vipers literally take bites out of people....) And when a boy is bitten by one of the vipers--before the town even knows about them--they immediately have the right anti-venom at hand. The doctor didn't even know what kind of snake bit the boy--the mother just said "he got bite by a snake!" Don't you have to know what specific type of snake before you administer the anti-venom? Because if you don't, and you have the wrong anti-venom, aren't you just putting a new venom into the body?

So in the end, if you don't mind wrong facts, bad CGI, a good but predictable plot, and annoying characters, than you'll enjoy Vipers. It had some fun moments, which sort of redeemed the movie, but I couldn't give it anything higher than a C+. Still, it's a way to pass a Saturday afternoon...
