"You're full of snakes. They want to come out"

"Take off your shirt. It's cool, I'm a cop."

This is one of those really bad movies that is fun to watch. It's got stoned surfers, a train engineer smoking crack, young girls smuggling drugs, a couple of cowboys with guns trying to get with them and rob them, snakes in a train, a train in a snake, and a woman who pukes up snakes and then turns into a snake. The woman, Alma, was cursed with devil snakes by her family because she wouldn't marry the man they chose for her and instead ran away with a guy named Brujo who is trying to help her get to Los Angeles so his uncle can put the snakes back in her and make her well. But the snakes keep getting out of her, usually in a mess of green and blue vomit, and Brujo runs around trying to find them and shove them back in. Meanwhile some of them are growing huge and eating passengers.
You have to give credit to the actress who plays Alma for swallowing and throwing up so many real snakes. Most of them are juvenile garter or ribbon snakes, and if you've ever smelled what comes out of their butts when they are unhappy, you know you would never ever ever want to put one in your mouth. Most of the other horrible deadly snakes are just cute little Ball Pythons. There are also a couple of Boa Constrictors, Burmese Pythons, including an albino, some rubber snakes, and a few CGI monster snakes that swallow children and eventually grow to be the size of the train.

"No snakes were hurt during the production of this screenplay.
Only a small child was but it's cool."

"Why are you still reading this? Go back to the video store
and rent another Asylum film. You know you want to."
