Shot in Arizona by
Frederico Prsperi and his (mostly) Italian crew, here is the totally unconventional
story of a young man who - after getting bitten by a radioactive snake
- begins to transform into a murderous serpent. The FX are far beyond
the norm, designed by the irrationally good Screaming Mad George (best
known for RE-ANIMATOR).

A young couple, Clark
and Lisa, are enjoying a road trip in Southwest USA. Enroute to Albuquerque,
they decide to take a shortcut through a remote section of the Arizona
desert. They weren't aware of it, but this part of the wilderness was
being used for nuclear testing and snakes have been severely infected.
During a flat tire incident, Clark is bitten. He soon begins to hallucinate
and experience bouts of violent rage... but the worst: his arm, where
he's been bitten, is starting to transform into a snake!
