The film is notorious for being nearly a RecycledInSpace of ''Curse of the Komodo'' and has the habit of using BottomlessMagazines and IdiotBall to the extreme.



* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: As per the title, we get a giant cobra and giant Komodo Dragon

* AttackOfTheKillerWhatever: As per ActionGirl: Susan managed to survive in the title, we get a island alone for weeks clad only in black tank top and jeans while armed with 9mm handgun (though the house did have supplies) before the environmentalists arrived.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: See TheStinger and SequelHook below.
* ArmiesAreEvil: A common trope in B-movies. The U.S. military attempted to use
giant cobra animals as biological weapons and giant Komodo Dragontry to cover-up its existence. This is further taken UpToEleven when they bomb the boat of the environmentalists for "trespassing" into what is considered a military installation.

* IdiotBall: As with all B-movie plots, there are always idiots that would hamper or cause the deaths of others.



** Averted for the smaller komodo, as the special forces' [=M4A1s=] are shown to impact it, yet the 5.56 NATO rounds does only damage it.

* OhCrap: [[spoiler: All the girls are terrified as the military bombs the island right before Stoddard starts the chopper. Thankfully, they escape on time.]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Definitely different. [[spoiler:They have green eyes and forked tongue, but other than that, we don't see it in action.]][[note]]This was most likely a nod to the "Komodo zombies" seen in ''Film/CurseOfTheKomodo''[[/note]]
