“It’s the closest I’ve yet seen to a Chinese version of Tremors. Nowhere near as good, obviously, yet the way these disparate characters come together to fight the threat is quite endearing […] All told, it’s fun, and the novel setting certainly enhances its merits.” Rating: B Film Blitz
The story of the movie originated from the primitive snake culture in northern Fujian. According to legend, since the Qin and Han dynasties, the ancestors believed in snakes as the god of ancestors and worshipped them as totems. They do not fight snakes or eat snake meat. This custom has been preserved to this day, and many ancient myths have also been derived. Among them, the legend of ‘The Long Snake Immortal Marries His Wife’ is the most popular and The Mutant Python is based on this adaptation.
