The producers of Jaws were behind this fun and entertaining flick. Strother Martin is a mad snake scientist who uses a serum to slowly turn his assistant (Dirk Benedict, from the A-Team) into a king cobra. His previous assistant ended up in a traveling freak show. The great make-up is by John Chambers, who also did the Planet of the Apes make-up. A disclaimer in the beginning assures us that all the snakes are real and thanks the cast for it’s bravery. Director Bernard L. Kowalski started out making movies for Roger Corman. With Heather (Piranha) Menzies.
