4.0 out of 5 stars Slithery Fun..., October 8, 2004
This review is from: Sssssss (DVD)
Strother Martin is a herpetologist (snake guy) and Heather Menzies is his cute (in a Jane Fonda way), bespectacled daughter. They earn their living putting on shows where dad encounters a 14 foot king cobra, grabs it, and extracts venom from it's huge fangs! Along comes Dirk Benedict (TVs Battlestar Gallactica, and The A-Team) as a new lab assistant. He is given injections under the pretense of being immunized against snake bites. Little does he know that he's the latest guinnea pig in his new boss' lab! I saw this with it's double bill partner THE BOY WHO CRIED WEREWOLF when they came out. I hated the latter, but loved Sssssss! I just watched it again and enjoyed it immensely. If you like monster / sci-fi / horror / mad scientist / 70s cheese, you'll love this! Dirk Benedict is far more tolerable in Sssssss than he is in anything else! Strother Martin is the perfect madman! Reb Brown is excellent as the jerky jock! The carnival "snake boy" scene was shocking in 1973, and holds up well today. Sssssss belongs right next to WILLARD (the original version) and FROGS on your DVD shelf. Recommended...

I was 11 years old and my brother was 8 when this came out. We must have seen it at the drive-in with our parents. The film stuck with both of us, and we "referenced" it for years afterward. I'm glad to hear that it holds up after all this time, and I'll definitely check it out again. Thanks!

Translating "herpitologist (sic)? for us? Really? By definition, everyone reading this is on a computer, and could look it up if they didn't know what it meant.

Spelling error corrected. I for one am lazy enough to NOT want to look up anything... BSF
