An eccentric herpetologist enlists the help of a college student to assist in his snake research, but the daily doses of 'anti-venom' that he has been administering to his star pupil begin to turn the boy into a slithering serpent! Anyone with a fear of snakes, beware! SSSSSSS boasts an array of live snakes that the actors handle, including the deadly King Cobra. It is impossible to take the film completely seriously, but thankfully the even blend of comedy, horror, and romance give the quirky characters and silly plot plenty of room to breath. Like Willard and Stanley before him, Dr. Stoner uses his fanged friends to exact revenge against his trespassers, which provides a decent little body count as the snakes bite and crush their way through the locals. Unfortunately, the final creature design fails to impress because of its aged make-up and special FX, but SSSSSSS still manages to be an entertaining killer animal entry from the early 70's!
