King Cobra
30 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Fritz Weaver stars in this supernatural thriller as Father Tom Farrow, whose parish is in a rural Alabama town that is about to have a dog track open up soon, but unfortunately a deadly king cobra has escaped from a train where three mysterious deaths occurred, and more in town, bringing in the interest of a doctor(played by Gretchen Corbett) and a herpetologist(played by Jon Korkes) who must join forces with the priest in order to defeat this devilish threat, as this is no ordinary snake, but is in fact Satan... Good cast cannot save this flatly directed film that is devoid of suspense, though is almost endearingly campy. A young Christina Applegate co-stars. Once obscure film is now available on a double-feature Blu-ray from Scream Factory, and has a fine HD transfer at least, though the on-screen title is "King Cobra", as is the theatrical trailer. "Jaws Of Satan" is a better title!
