A genetics laboratory run by Dr. Irwin Burns to research aggressive behavior has an accident, resulting in a chemical fire and explosion, and the escape of a thirty foot long hybrid snake with traits of both the Asian King Cobra (in the film, it is referred to as the African King Cobra, even though the King Cobra species doesn't inhabit the African Subcontinent) and the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake. Loose in the countryside and filled with the experimental aggressiveness drug, the snake, nicknamed "Seth", eventually outgrows his woodland prey, it begins hunting the residents of the small brewery town of Filmore. Doc Kragen conducts an autopsy on a recently found body and determines that the death was caused by a huge snake. He and Police Chief Jo Biddle go to the Mayor and demand he cancel an upcoming town lager festival. The Mayor refuses, but after more deaths, the town eventually brings in snake expert and hunter Nick Hashimoto.

Not a very outstanding movie, yet its not too boring. Some part its a bit wasted for me, i just feel like it can be done better; while some part i just feel like it can be cut out from the movie. But i love the way they make the king cobra look so real, good job!
