Snake Religion
8 December 2016 | by shawnblackmanSee all my reviews

A woman seeks the help of an alcoholic veteran to help find her sister who joined a cult in some remote area. They drive there and find out she's gone. The group passes around venomous snakes with the notion that God will protect them against bites. They join the cult to find out what happened to her sister and find leaving isn't so easy.

This wasn't too bad even though we have seen this premise done a few times. The leader of the cult is played by Joe Egender who I think is a spitting image of Giovanni Ribisi. They didn't get into too many back stories or much character development but you do get the idea that they're all brain washed.

You do hear in the news now and then about someone from these snake religions getting fatally bit.
