Dr. Stone mentions housing a snake in the "storm cellar" at one point. As the film is set in Southern California rather than the Midwest or the American South it is highly unlikely that Stoner's house would have a storm cellar. California is not prone to violent storms. See more »
Dr. Carl Stoner:
[Speaking to Harry the snake]
You're asking me questions, Harry, and I hear you. A scientist cannot afford the indulgence of guilt. And after all, if God doesn't want me to continue, means of my disposal are always at his command.

Ssssssso the acting may have been mediocre, but the snakes were the real S-s-s-s-stars!
I first saw this when I was 8 or 9. I already had a fascination for, and a fear of snakes. But this movie (Along with "Stanley") increased both the fear and the fascination, for me! I think cobras are the coolest of any snakes, deadly as they are!
I agree somewhat with the other comments, that some of the acting ranged from mediocre to downright lame! But whether you love or hate snakes, wouldn't you agree that the snakes in this movie are/were more exciting to watch than the human actors? They were, for me! As cheesy as the acting was, otherwise, I still recommend this movie. Especially if you like to watch venomous snakes and specifically, King Cobras!
I can't believe I sold my VHS copy of this movie at a pawn shop! I miss this movie!
