Strother Martin (Cool Hand Luke) and Dirk Benedict (TV’s original Battlestar Galactica) star in the schlocky 1973 cult favorite Sssssss, about a respected snake expert who masks a frightening desire to transmute a man into a king cobra.

Sssssss10Realizing that his new lab assistant, David (Benedict), is the perfect specimen, the demented doctor begins administering injections of “immunization serum.” Soon, David begins experiencing strange side effects: his skin is shedding while his body shape is changing. But before he realizes the horrible truth, the metamorphosis from human to serpent has begun.

This sci-fi-horror thriller, directed by Bernard L. Kowalski (Attack of the Giant Leeches), also stars Heather Menzies (Piranha) and Reb Brown (Howling II and TV’s Captain America).
