Seek this out if you're looking for something a little different.
Snakey Bender (played with offbeat charm by veteran character actor Les Tremayne) is a friendly, misunderstood eccentric psychopath who loses it after several strange characters push him over the edge. He decides to get even using his slithering serpents as instruments for revenge. FANGS (the name of the video I saw) refreshingly goes out of its way to be different, especially with an odd assortment of characters. A cheerful schoolteacher livens up her weeks by having sex with a huge blacksnake name Lucifer (shown in shadow). A redneck grocery store clerk and his obese lesbian sister try to seduce the teacher and kill one of Snakey's beloved pets. Snakey's former best friend, his much younger wife who's been cheating on him (Janet Wood), and a corrupt preacher (Marvin Kaplan) are other victims. He even keeps Wood tied to a chair and makes her watch as he kills everyone. Several of the murders (a hidden pit full of rattlesnakes, an interesting poisonous snake-in-a-barrel game) are bizarre and made even more bizarre because they're set to marching band music (!) The score of the film is actually credited to John Phillip Souza!
Score: 6 out of 10
