It would be impossible to instantly identify the exact species of snake which bit a person from just looking at the puncture marks. An expert might be able to tell the marks were from a snake's fangs, but not from what species. See more »

reptilian girl on rampage in Little Tooting..................
17 August 2006 | by dan.adamsSee all my reviews

A funny little camp flick set in early 20th century northern England.Has stock in trade, flaming torch carrying villagers,a mad scientist,an eye-rolling doctor,an old crone with "second sight",a handsome young detective wearing a sidearm and a neat chick who, by metamorphosis, can change from stunning girl to stinging cobra in a trice! High point of the film for me was the way the snake girl shed her skin-complete with her clothes-how modest can you get? It is a bit of a pity she wasn't afforded the opportunity to explain why she has such a nasty biting habit. On the scientific side(what's that?),players comment on the cold but the poikilothermic snake lady seems pretty active. A great little flea pit movie!
