The black mamba snake is known for being extremely aggressive when provoked and will not hesitate to strike when aggravated. It is the quickest snake in the world, having recorded speeds of up to 12 mph (19.5 km/h) and has an average length of 8.2 feet (2.5m). Upon striking its prey it releases 100-120 mg of venom. Only 10-15 mg is enough to kill an adult. Why does this matter to you?
The new horror Open Graves, set for UK release on February 15, stars the venomous black mamba alongside an alluring Eliza Dushku and hunky ex-Levi's model Mike Vogel. The film is a blend of an adult Jumanji mixed with a Final Destination storyline set in Spain around a group of international surfers. Read a review of it here at Blogcritics.
Horror has become one of the most popular genres of today and this film does have its stomach-turning moments.

You'll need to get your hands on the DVD to know the answer and here is your chance…
