‘Snakes’ vid draws venom

Bloggers not impressed with DVD 'Train'

What happens when fans of a movie expected to be so bad that it’s frickin’ awesome find out there’s an even worse version out there?

That’s the strange position early “Snakes on a Plane” fans find themselves in.

Readers of SnakesOnABlog.com, one of the centers of Internet hype for the Samuel L. Jackson starrer, have discovered the direct-to-video production “Snakes on a Train.”

DVD is due out from the Asylum (proud producers of “The Pirates of Treasure Island” and “666: The Child”) three days before “Plane” hits theaters.

Reactions from the “Plane” bloggers were, well, mixed. One reader wrote, “OMFG can we sue for copyright infringement?”

Another, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, criticized the knockoff’s plot — which centers around a woman on a train who has a bunch of snakes inside her body — as implausible.

On the other hand, “Snakes on a Plane” — whose storyline revolves around an assassin unleasing a bunch of snakes during a trans-Pacific flight — “has a reasonable, realistic plot.”
