Vipers to Tara-Rize Reid on DVD

Tara Reid vs. The Phallic Innuendo!UPDATE: A astute reader named Joey found the DVD artwork for Vipers over at HK Flix and passed it along to yours truly. I can also now confirm that DVD is being released by Wellspring/Genius Entertainment.


It took a lot of intestinal fortitude to resist titling this article “Snakes on a Skank”; that just seemed too mean spirited even for a story about a Tara Reid killer snake flick. I could have also gone the “Tara Reid Develops Viper Rash” route which I’m sure Johnny Butane would have appreciated…

The movie is Vipers and not only does it feature the unbeatable combination of drunken party girl extraordinaire Tara Reid and the prolific but never picky Corbin Bernsen, this nature gone amok flick comes to us from the writer of Scarecrow Gone Wild and the director of Left Behind II: Tribulation Force. That’s a hell of a pedigree.

“When some genetically enhanced vipers are released during a break-in at a medical research laboratory, it results in plenty of slithery problems in this terror tale. As the sinister snakes eat everything in their path and reproduce at an alarming rate, a group of locals trapped in a hotel on an isolated island tries to escape.”

Whether or not Tara Reid has once again been miscast as a scientist – we all remember how well that worked out in Uwe Boll’s Alone in the Dark – remains to be seen. What can be said right now is that neither Reid nor Bernsen appear to be the actual stars of the flick. IMDB lists working actor Jonathan Scarfe and “Stargate: Atlantis”‘ Claire Rankin as the primary actors. Other co-stars include “Stargate SG-1″‘s Don S. Davis and Jessica Steen, who also has also appeared on “Stargate SG-1″.

I first reported on Vipers “>this past December, back when there wasn’t much info about the production. Actually, there’s still not a whole lot of info out there. Production stills, trailers, production information, celeb sites reporting gossip of Tara Reid supposedly showing up late and hung-over to the film’s set: you can find more about the latter online than you can the first three.

The new info that has been announced and is the reason for this article is Movies Unlimited listing Vipers as slithering its way onto DVD shelves come September 23rd. What company is releasing it – not listed. Extras, if any – not listed. Box art: currently unavailable. I can tell you that the suggested retail price is $14.99. If you ask me, $15 bucks isn’t asking too much to see Tara Reid possibly get eaten by snakes?

I’ll keep you posted.

    I always love seeing DVD covers that enhance the female leads’ boobs to entice the potential buyer.

    Vipers killed my entire family.

      …well yeah, but only after you forgot to tell Bill that you were getting married…

    How are vipers sinister? It’s not like they go out of their way to ruin people’s lives or anything.

  • PelusaMG

    Ahh, Britney Spears… There’s another woman with flies buzzing round her knickers!

  • Chainsaw

    Best picture ever.

    This woman was hot in The Big Lebowski (‘suck it for $1000 bucks’). She could get out of DTV hell if everyone just posted that pic from the movie where she says that line, sittin’ there all hot in her little bikini next to the pool…

    But noooo, it’s all ‘Look at this picture, she’s drunk again!’ and ‘Hey, she can’t play a scientist! She’s not smart enough for that.’

    Wait, you know what? I’m sorry. You’re right. She did this to herself. I let her past hotness send a surge of hormones straight to my brain and I wasn’t thinking straight.

    Tara, if you’re reading this, I’ve never seen a single one of the horror movies you’ve ever been in, and I never will. You should do comedies some more instead. Or a sitcom. Lookit what that did for Britney!

      Tara Reid was hot? I’ve never found her anything but mediocre.

  • PelusaMG

    When I first watched “Van Wilder”, Tara Reid looked quite (*hesitates for a moment*) hot in it, but then again I had drunk quite a lot of beer prior to viewing it, which also added to my mis-conceiving this to be a good film at the same time!

    However, I agree with Kryten… When I look at pictures of Tara Reid I can’t escape this feeling that you would end up getting the “Gift that keeps giving”…

    Just looking at Tara Reid makes my genitals itch.

    Tara, Meet Dolph Lundgren, Jeff Speakman, Jean Claude Van Damne, and Wesley Snipes. Welcome to Direct to DVD hell.
