Fire Serpent is a 2007 Sci Fi Channel monster movie directed by John Terlesky.

Plot[edit]

A solar flare from the sun sends a serpentine alien composed of fire to Earth where it begins to wreak havoc throughout a small community. During its search for more fuel to consume it stumbles upon a large military oil reserve. It soon becomes clear that an old man may hold the key to destroying it in the form of a Halogen Gun which may be used as a makeshift fire extinguisher of sorts. A small group of citizens decides to use this technology to make a stand against the creature only to face additional resistance from the beast, as well as a government employer who voluntarily helps the snake because he believes it is the spirit of a god.

Reception[edit]

David Cornelius from DVD Talk gave the film a negative review, writing, "Fire Serpent is a wretched sci-fi/horror mess, with laughable CGI effects, an empty plot, and zero suspense. (In other words, it's your run-of-the-mill Sci-Fi Channel production. Zing!) It's the kind of B picture that fails not because it's cheap, but because it's terminally dull."[1] Jon Condit from Dread Central awarded the film a negative score of 1 out of five, calling it "dull".[2]
