Summary: So bad it makes bad things in general look quite good

There are some really hot chicks in SNAKE CHARMER! Do not let this tempt you to watch it. Yes, they do look great doing seductive bar dancing COYOTE UGLY style. Still, avoid the movie like death itself, because in every other respect the movie is BAD. So bad it makes bad things in general look quite good after all.

It seems to be made for TV, which I suppose excuses it somewhat. (Although why 'made for TV' should be synonymous with 'made badly' I don't know). Definitely it was shot on video, which makes it almost insulting that it comes on an anamorphically enhanced disc. I think the anamorphic enhancement probably just makes it looks worse. Not that it matters, because even if it had a perfect high definition transfer from a flawless film print it would not make the movie worth watching.

Recommended if and ONLY if KRAI THONG is your favourite movie from the past 5 years.

Summary: Pretty bad!!

I just found this boring, well boring when the snake didn't appear!!

They did have a good concept but the lack of work to the script (almost feels like them talking were fillers to the special fx) and the woooden acting doesn't help!! What they could of done a lot better was make it more sensual but in that department they failed miserably!! They could of made it more seductive or at least of tried!! There are no sex scenes in this movie (which is not why i watched this movie by the way) but they could of had some. They could of made this into a Cat 3 movie but didn't!!

The one good thing about this b grade movie is the special fx. The snakes all look very real, i guess thats where they blew there budget. Too bad about everything else!!

This could of been a decent movie to watch if they spent more time making the script more into a thriller than a filler of time!!

And the end, there is a message saying DONT TAKE DRUGS, well the movie makers should of thought of making a better movie because i think some people could not of lasted till the end!!

3/10

Summary: Not Charmed

Hmmm... between the ages of 5 and 6 is where one might find an audience somewhat captivated by this movie.
