I feel so sleepy.
Dr. Carl Stoner:
It's the effect of the inoculation. You'll sleep very soundly tonight, David, and perhaps even through tomorrow. And if you're lucky, you may experience what few persons have ever known and lived to recall. You see, the venom of the cobra is one of nature's strongest hallucinogens!

What we have here is a failure to....OH, wrong Strother Martin film. Well, Martin is the star of Sssssss(7 s's), and I must admit he is rather enjoyable to watch as a kindly, softspoken, insane, murderous herpetologist trying to save the human race by turning men into cobras. The story is absurd and rather difficult to follow. The special effects suck(being blunt and candid) as we see Dirk Benedict get an occasional scale on his green body. The snakes are impressive, however. Martin's over-the-top performance saves this film from being utterly mundane and makes it fun to watch.
