A wealthy businessman named Rupert (Caruso) has a strange fascination with snakes. He loves snakes so much that he names his business Cobra Enterprises and has snake-themed furniture in his home, along with real snakes as pets. But due to poor management his company goes nearly bankrupt and Rupert is forced to come up with a novel solution to earn money: fund a team of scientists who can create genetically mutated snakes as sideshow attractions. The sideshow tour proves to be a hit with locals, and one day the attraction is visited by a single father named Kent (Sutherland), his daughter Annabelle (Hyland) and her boyfriend Wade (Henrie). Kent has ophidiophobia (fear of snakes) ever since a venomous snake bit his wife leading to her tragic death, but Annabelle drags with him so she can protest the experiments done on the snakes. They stumble upon Rupert admiring one of his creations and Kent wonders how someone can have such a fascination for such despising creatures. Annabelle confronts Rupert and scolds him for the horrible things they're doing to those poor creatures. Meanwhile Wade just makes dumb penis jokes whenever he comes across a snake. The following evening when the attraction has closed and all the people have left Annabelle and Wade sneak into the facility and free all the snakes including the genetically modified ones, not knowing that they're not only still venomous, but have essentially turned into super snakes that can spit acid, grow hundreds of feet long, and a few snakes are even shown growing wings and flying. The snakes sneak into the nearby town and cause havoc, attacking people through toilets and climbing in through windows and eating everything they come across. Realizing the trouble they've caused, Annabelle and Wade go into the town and try to capture the snakes. Wade sees a kitten about to get eaten by a large python and rushes to its rescue. He manages to save the kitten in time, and even brags about it to Annabelle, but he then gets attacked by the python. The larger-than-average python ends up squeezing him so hard that his head explodes in a gory but comical fashion. As the snake chases Annabelle out of town, the kitten is seen peeing on Wade's corpse.


Morning comes as Annabelle is seen rushing back to her father's house and proceeds to lock all the doors and windows. Kent comes out and wonders what's going on and Annabelle explains what she did and laments the loss of Wade, but refuses to admit to her mistake. A flying snake suddenly crashes through their window and attacks Kent, who ultimately stabs it with a kitchen knife. They look out and see the town being overrun with killer snakes. Bent on protecting himself and his daughter (who still believes she did the "right thing" despite it leading to the death of dozens of people) Kent goes to the garage and combines a leaf blower and a blowtorch to create a flamethrower (don't ask how that works) to fend off attacking snakes on the way to their car. He accidentally sets his car on fire though, so he and his daughter has to cover while the car explodes. A helpful neighbor named Toby (Doug) appears with his RV and helps them escape the snakes. Toby reveals that he used to spy on the experiments being done by the scientists hired by Rupert, and reveals that the genetically modified snakes can breed super fast. Like they can lay an egg and have a full-grown offspring within a few days. The scientists realized this and neutered the males, but since both males and females have now escaped the females can find any local species and mate with them instantly. The more exotic species end up breaking into a local reptile zoo and breed from there. Kent comes to the conclusion that in order to prevent the snakes from taking over everything, they have to lure all the snakes into the reptile zoo and kill them in one go. Annabelle protests, saying that despite the snakes killing all the people she still wants to protect them, but since she brought them into this mess in the first place Kent and Toby ignore her.


Kent enlists the help of a local Indiana Jones-parody named Montana James (Arquette) but Montana's so afraid of snakes that his heart jumps when he spots an innocent corn snake. Kent sympathizes with Montana's fears, but if anyone can get them in and out of the infested reptile zoo it's him. Heading back to the RV Toby gets attacked by a cobra who spits acid promptly melting his face (reminding Monty of the time he discovered the ark of the covenant), so with Toby dead the remaining group grabs his RV and heads for the reptile zoo. They break in to find the snakes have essentially taken over the place, eating all the other reptiles in the process (one snake has even managed to devour ALL the crocodiles). Montana panics but Kent restraints him, telling him that both need to conquer their fears. They plant some bombs to blow the whole place up killing all the snakes in the process, but Monty is knocked out by Rupert, appearing to stop the trio from blowing up the snakes. He actually thanks Annabelle for releasing them, for now the snakes can take over the world and he with his snake fetish couldn't be happier. Kent tries to stop Rupert but Annabelle turns her back on Kent, saying she'd rather let her dad die than for him to kill the not-so-innocent snakes. Kent ends up fighting Rupert while the snakes circle them below. Rupert uses snake-inspired attacks like biting, squeezing and spitting on Kent, but Kent overpowers him and throws him down to the snakes, showing him how the snakes would actually treat him back. The snakes pound on Rupert squeezing, biting and spitting acid on him until he turns into bloody goo on the ground (reminding Monty of the time he found the holy grail). Annabelle picks up a gun and shoots her dad. Kent survives being shot but is unable to pull the trigger, so it's up to Monty to save the day. He and Annabelle end up tripping over so they both are seen grabbing on to the suspension of the bridge. Monty pushes her over the edge ("You betrayed PETA!") and watches Annabelle getting devoured by the snakes she swore to protect. Kent asks if it was necessary to kill his daughter but Monty doesn't care. They set off the explosives killing all the snakes in the process. On their way out of the burning reptile zoo Kent laments the loss of his daughter, even though she valued the lives of killer snakes over her own father. The moment is cut short as a giant anaconda emerges from the burning wreckage and attacks them. Having overcome his fear of snakes, Monty leaps onto the Anaconda's head and strikes it with his machete, killing it and finally bringing this nightmare to an end. Sitting and watching the reptile zoo go up in flames, Monty asks Kent if he should write a book on his experiences, maybe throw in aliens and a scene where he survives a nuke by hiding in a fridge, but Kent tells him to not go there. The movie ends with "What a Wonderful World" playing over the credits.
