Terror is ready to strike! This Week on Svengoolie April 7th


  "Sssssss" (1973)   
Me-TV 9:00 pm Central

Director: Bernard L. Kowalski

Writers: Hal Dresner (screenplay), Daniel C. Striepeke (story)

Stars:
Strother Martin
Dirk Benedict
Heather Menzies-Urich

David, a college student, is looking for a job. He is hired by Dr. Stoner as a lab assistant for his research and experiments on snakes. David also begins to fall for Stoner's young daughter, Kristina. However, the good doctor has secretly brewed up a serum that can transform any man into a King Cobra snake and he plans to use it on David.


Two quick trivia: All the poisonous snakes featured were authentic and the cast actually did have to interact with them for filming. Only in the shot where Strother Martin grabs the King Cobra's head during the show was a puppet snake used.

This film was released by Universal as a double feature with The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, making the program one of the last double bills released by the studio.

I own this on DVD and have not had a chance to  see it yet so I can't wait to see this. Also, this is the first airing of Ssssss on Svengoolie.

  1. Oooh! A new one! I've felt like there have been a few repeats lately. I might have to check this out. I don't think I've ever watched any scary movies involving snakes.
