Sssssss (1973)
99 min.
Directed by Bernard Kowalski.
With Dirk Benedict, Strother Martin, Heather Menzies, Richard B. Shull, Tim O'Connor, Jack Ging, Kathleen King, Reb Brown.
An amiable '70s creature feature.

Veteran snake specialist Carl Stoner (Strother Martin) yearns to transform a human being into a king cobra - via administrations of his "immunization serum." (Why? We're not entirely sure.)

But his unsuspecting new lab assistant David Blake (Dirk Benedict) seems like the perfect candidate!

Will the doctor's daughter Kristina (Menzies) be able to save Dirk from a slithery end?

Fun viewing on a Sunday afternoon, particularly if you dislike or are fearful of the scaly creatures.

Early role for hunky Benedict of TV's popular Battlestar Galactica. Paced like a TV movie (nothing wrong with that), this one has an ending that is appropriately dour.

Also known as SSSSnake.
