When the devil cobra attacks and kills the man on the train, the glass that separates the snake from the man is visible. You can even see the mans reflection in it. And when the snake "bites" the man, you hear the snake thump the glass with its head. See more »
(There are Spoilers) Almost dropping dead from fright Evelyn Downs, Diana Douglas, the president of the Green County Historical Society and part time Witch saw something in Father Tom Farrow's, Fritz Weaver, coffee cup that left her stunned and unconscious.
Later the confused and befuddled Father Farrow is told by the Monsignore, Norman Llyod,of his church the horrible secret of Farrow's lineage. Father Tom's Great-great-great-great-great Granddaddy back during the middle-ages in jolly old England did a number on the local Druids who were in league with the Devil. For that his's family was cursed since then by the "Evil One" with death and destruction. Now it's his, Father Tom's, turn to pay for what his long ago ancestor in England did.
The brood of snakes, Cobras and Rattle Snakes led by Satan himself, in disguise as a giant King Cobra attack, move with lighting speed and kill about a dozen residents of Green County. But when it came to kill their intended target, Father Tom, as well as the two co-stars in the movie Green County's hospital director Dr. Maggie Sheridan & Herpetologist Dr. Paul Hendricks, Gretchen Corbett & Jon Korkes,the snakes just laid down and seem to play dead.
There was an incredible scene in the movie when Maggie is at home and takes a shower and then drys and puts on her nightgown and goes to bed. All this with a deadly Rattle Snake slithering around in her bathroom shower and bedroom within inches of her! Then for some unexplained reason the snake doesn't bother striking it's poisonous fangs into Maggie's body? It gets even more ridicules when Maggie finally, after what seems like a half hour, sees the snake and then calls her boyfriend Dr. Hendricks for help. Dr. Hendricks gets out of bed gets dressed runs to her house, which is about a mile away, and then after pinning the snakes head to the wall blows it's brains out! What was the snake waiting for all this time? For Hendricks to come to Maggie's rescue and kill it?
Fritz Weaver looked like he would rather do something else then be in the movie. Weaver walks around during the entire film in a daze trying to figure how he ever ended up in "Jaws of Satan" in the first place. Maggie being a whistle-blower and trying to warn the public about the danger of the attacking snakes is almost kidnapped raped and murder by this psycho biker, Mike Smith the 34th. Smith the 34th was hired to stop her from letting the truth out by Green Country big business man Matt Perry, Bob Hanna. Perry has a lot to lose by the public being in fear and not venturing out with his dog track about to open with nobody showing up for the Grand Opening. This jerk was so determined to open the dog track that even after his 10 year-old daughter Kim, Christina Applegate, was bitten by a rattler at the track he still didn't want to have it closed down!
Maggie is saved from the crazed biker by non-other then Satan himself wearing a King Cobra outfit. The movie "Jaws of Satan" comes to it's inevitable and non-surprising conclusion with Father Tom running to the rescue of both Maggie and Dr. Hendrick,who ended up trapped in the snake cave. Father Tom then does an Exorcism in both English and Latin causing the nest of vipers to catch fire and go back to where they came from.
What makes the movie "Jaws of Satan" worth watching is to see the actors in it play their parts completely straight. Not realizing just how absurd the movie was until they actually saw it and by then it was too late for them to quit.
