On one hand, this trailer for Asylum’s straight-to-video Snakes on a Train (8.15) makes a persuasive case that it’s just a jerkwad ripoff of Snakes on a Plane with ickier makeup and prosthetics. But having seen that eight-minute product reel for Snakes on a Plane at Comic-Con last weekend, it doesn’t seem that much sillier than the New Line film. It seems trashier, yes, but also trippier and more ludicrous. And with a wider selection of snake sizes. (Train‘s poster-art concept of a big snake putting its mouth around an entire train car isn’t, it turns out, just a drawing-board concept.) Oh, and here‘s New York Post critic Lou Lumenick interviewing Asylum’s David Latt.
