In 1835, the San Cristobal Island located somewhere in the British West Indies is ruled by sadistic beauty, Lady Susan Walker, who forces the local men to join the black slaves on her sugar cane plantation and either work or die. She's always dressed in black and never lets go of her whip, the black snake. Her latest husband has gone missing making her a real black widow. Her right hand man, impotent, racist and violent Joxer Tierney, is in command of the slaves and he makes sure that they hate him even more than they do her. Young slave Joshua plans a revolt, but his religious father Isaiah is terrified of what might happen if the revolt fails. Sir Charles Walker, the brother of Susan's late husband, goes undercover as Ronald Sopwith to investigate what really happened to his brother. She hires him as the plantation accountant, gives him a black sex slave named Cleone and eventually tries to seduce him. Her sadistic gay assistant may no more about Charles' brother's fate.
The original UK cinema release was cut heavily by the BBFC with edits to all the whipping scenes and shots of Joshua's hands being pierced with nails during the crucifixion scene. The 2005 Fremantle DVD is the fully uncut version. See more »
I saw this movie about 6-7 years ago at the midnight premier on German cable television and I do not wonder why many people don´t know this flick, because it´s the most unusual work director Russ Meyer ever did: there are no women with outsized tits, and the typical grotesque humor is also missing. Instead of it "Black Snake!" is a plain final speech against any form of colonialism, suppression and slavery. Main actress Anouska Hempel leads her plantation like a cruel mistress treats her subordinates, but at the end the exploited revolt and take bitter revenge against their tormentors... Perhaps this film is the most political statement Russ Meyer ever did, although it also contains a big circumference of sexual symbols and a lot of violent sequences. People who love B-movies or the exploitation films from the 70s will surely like this one. However, inveterated Russ Meyer fans should take care: this is not business as usual!!!
