Who will survive the attack of SNAKES ON A PLANE?

An early example of crass corporate meme-building, it’s a film reverse-engineered from one deliciously silly title: Snakes on a Plane. Like something built in a B-Movie laboratory, Snakes on a Plane has the good taste to not bother with plot — something about a Hawaiian gangster trying to kill a witness — and wastes no time getting to what the audience really wants: Samuel L. Jackson fighting snakes on an airplane. Almost a decade on, with the heaping froth of internet hype finally gone, Snakes on a Plane still holds up as a fun delivery-method for every possible snake gag you can imagine: snakes in the toilet, snakes biting breasts, snakes on the end of your nose. Snakes. Snakes everywhere. And Sam Jackson is tired of them.
