Explotation

Film Cinematical interviews David Michael Latt of The Asylum, a film company that gets by knocking out knock-offs of upcoming feature films on dvd. So King of the Lost World with Bruce Boxleitner the day before King Kong. But they're not proud. How about a exploitation movie of something that's already an exploitation movie? Ladies and Gentlemen. Snakes on a Train:
"Scott: Oh, and there's so much more. Pre-release mega-buzz has been extra loud for New Line's Snakes on a Plane (Aug. 18th), which gave you guys ample opportunity to bang out, that's right, Snakes on a Train (Aug. 15th). Did you ever consider for going with slugs or spiders or maybe bees on a train? What would your response be if I just said "Dude, what's UP with these movies?"

David: Our film has snakes. On a train. Very different. Train. See?"
The plot:
"Under a powerful Mayan curse, snakes are hatched inside a young woman, slowly devouring her from within. Her only chance for survival is a powerful shaman who lives across the border. With only hours to live, she jumps on a train headed for Los Angeles. Unfortunately for the passengers aboard, they are now trapped, soon to be victims of these flesh-eating vipers."
Very different.
