In a spooky and voodoo-like Louisiana, mysterious Antonio Fargas (as William Boudreaux) does something weird with a chicken. As his chicken drips blood, a truck full of experimental snakehead fish crashes. The truck contains canisters of the giant -' possibly mutated -' snakeheads, which escape. They are vicious and blood-thirsty. As you might be expecting, they have a taste for human blood. We meet our co-starring couple at an unrelated wedding. They are not yet a couple, but have obvious potential. Pretty blonde Ayla Kell (as Ashley) invites curly-haired Dave Davis (as Chris Hardin) to a party with some friends, on a small boat belonging to her obnoxious boyfriend Ross Britz (as Ian Davids). This makes the party of five potential bait for the escaped snakeheads...
There is an interesting backstory involving Davis and his family, courtesy of writer Greg Mitchell. Worried ranger Terri Garber (as Carly) is Mr. Davis' mom, and she has a frosty relationship with father Anthony Marble (as Jim). Too bad Davis' brother wasn't tied into the "Blackbrier Curse" scenario in some definite manner. The whole plot involving Mr. Fargas is regrettable. He played streetwise Huggy Bear on the TV series "Starsky and Hutch" in the 1970s, but has lost touch with informants over the years. We are never really sure what made Grandma so angry. Possibly, some of what trudges through "Snakehead Swamp" as nonsense made more sense in development stages. There are a few funny lines -' and deaf receptionist Peaches Davis (as Marge) is a highlight.
