I have seen some great movies in my life. The RoomThe StabilizerBattlefield Earth. Those are all true masterpieces. But I cannot recall seeing anything quite like Snake Outta Compton, the harrowing and (I assume) true story of a snake that becomes irradiated with unstable molecules, and then goes on an out-of-control rampage through Los Angeles. Man was not meant to consume such beauty. But nonetheless, it is here. Now it must be reckoned with. Watch the (NSFW) trailer above.

Just in case you didn’t quite get the drift from the trailer (it is very subtle, I know), here is the film’s official synopsis:

A young rap group suddenly finds themselves up against a giant, mutated snake that threatens to destroy their search for stardom! Aided by two corrupt cops, a crazed gangster, and a mad scientist, the band has one thing to do before getting the record deal they need; get that motherf--in’ Snake Outta Compton! Prepare yourself for dope ass beats, unfriendly fire, and the biggest, nastiest snake you’ve ever seen in this outrageous satire of creature features, urban gangster films, and hip hop culture.

Snake Outta Compton looks like it is intended for a direct-to-video audience. This is a travesty. A film this majestic, filled with ideas this bold, demands to be seen on a big screen. I hope someone books this in a theater in my area, so I can go watch it, in no one way under the influence of any kind of mind-altering substance, and appreciate it the way it was clearly intended to be seen.
