Every since I had interviewed Jennifer Lynch on the site a while back, I was interested in seeing this woman/monster movie.
It begins interesting enough, in prehistoric India, recounting the legend of Nagin. This is the snake goddess who can grant immortality. In the present, a really fugly white guy, dying of brain cancer, wants her power. So he hired a group of thugs to lead him to the Nagin. He witnesses two big cobras having sex and they capture the male, which he then keeps in a big aquarium in a basement. The serpent is attached to wire, which allow him to electrocute the creature. He wants Nagin to come to him and he thinks this is the way to do it. Meanwhile, there's a police detective whose wife just had another miscarriage. They desperately want a child. But this just made me think, "Is this really a bad thing? They're in India and there'll be one less kid!". Anyways, he ends up investigating murders caused by Nagin. You see, she has assumed the shape of a young woman and begins killing some of the men who captured her. And she also kills bad men along the way, like some rapists. One of them she swallows whole after she transforms into a giant cobra, leaving behind a small ball of bones, hair and clothes for the police. That was probably the best scene in the movie.
While the snake effects at the beginning are impressive, particularly her first transformation, which blends physical make-up effects and computer generated effects, the snakes look less and less real as the movie progresses, which doesn't help. The main, thing, though is the disjointed script and the "Indian style" of acting, which I find painful.
If you loved Lynch's previous movie, SURVEILLANCE, then you should wisely avoid this horror movie.
