Spasms (1983, CDN) C-86m. * D: William Fruet. Starring Peter Fonda, Oliver Reed, Kerrie Keane, Al Waxman, Miguel Fernández, Angus MacInnes. Scientist Reed has a telepathic link to a giant, deadly serpent(!) and asks ESP expert Fonda to help him out. If that's not enough to make you laugh out loud, the rest of the plot will - unless it will make you cry, because it's so bad. One or two good attack scenes and that's it. Filmed in 1981. Score by Tangerine Dream. Based on the novel Death Bite, which is also the film's alternative title.
