Dr. Carl Stoner:
I think I can turn to live with animals. They are so placid, so self contained. I stand and look at then long and long. They do not sweat and imply about their condition; They do not lay awake in the dark and weep for their sins; They do not make me sick discussing their duty to god. Not one is dissatisfied; not one is demented with the mania of owning things; not one kneels to another, nor to his kind who lived thousands of years ago; not one is respectable, or unhappy over the whole earth. ...

Ssssssso the acting may have been mediocre, but the snakes were the real S-s-s-s-stars!
I first saw this when I was 8 or 9. I already had a fascination for, and a fear of snakes. But this movie (Along with "Stanley") increased both the fear and the fascination, for me! I think cobras are the coolest of any snakes, deadly as they are!
I agree somewhat with the other comments, that some of the acting ranged from mediocre to downright lame! But whether you love or hate snakes, wouldn't you agree that the snakes in this movie are/were more exciting to watch than the human actors? They were, for me! As cheesy as the acting was, otherwise, I still recommend this movie. Especially if you like to watch venomous snakes and specifically, King Cobras!
I can't believe I sold my VHS copy of this movie at a pawn shop! I miss this movie!
