Sterling Hayden, Susan George, Klaus Kinski, Oliver Reed. A bizarre psychotic trio kidnap a 10-year-old boy from his elaborate London home. But things do not go well-especially when an unexpected guest shows up-a lethal and deadly Black Mamba snake. 1982/color/92 min/R/widescreen.
It was supposed to be the perfect crime: the sexy maid (Susan George of "Straw Dogs"), a psychotic chauffeur (Oliver Reed of "Revolver") and an international terrorist (the legendary Klaus Kinski) kidnap a wealthy ten-year old boy from his elegant London townhouse. But they didn't count on a murdered cop, a desperate hostage siege and one very unexpected house guest: a furious Black Mamba, the most lethal and aggressive snake known in nature. It can attack from 10 feet away. Its bite brings excruciating death, and it is on the loose. Now, terror knows no antidote...and the ultimate slithering mayhem is VENOM.
Sterling Hayden ("The Killing"), Nicol Williamson ("Excalibur") and Sarah Miles ("Blowup") co-star in this gripping suspense thriller directed by Piers Haggard ("Blood on Satan's Claw") and featuring some very real--and extremely deadly--Black Mambas! END
