"She's got the power... and you haven't got a prayer!"
"A Holy Terror!"

Jennifer is a nice, pretty, well-adjusted high school girl who works in her father's pet store. But when she was younge she was a Christian snake handler with the power to control snakes. (A big box of gopher snakes is what we are shown.) She has a scholarship to attend a private girl's school where the other girls don't like her because they're all rich snobs and she's working class. They keep scaring and torturing her trying to force her leave the school. For some reason, her father wants her to go back to snake-handling - "The bible says to take up the serpent" - but she refulses, until she just can't take any more abuse from the mean girls at school. (Yes, this is a blatant "Carrie" rip-off, as even the advertising tells us.)

We see few real snakes in the pet store and elsewhere, rock pythons, gopher snakes, king snakes, and others, along with some of the worst giant hand-puppet special-effects monster snakes you've ever seen, shot with terrible lighting so you can barely see them. Like it does in "Carrie" the whole film builds up to a huge snakes-on-the-rampage revenge scene, but when it comes, it just wasn't worth the buildup.
