Hey guys, Jana here,
If you can’t get enough movies with slithering, cold-blooded reptiles like ‘Anaconda‘ or ‘Snakes on a Plane‘, you might want to go back in time a little bit to 1973 with ‘Sssssss‘ starring Strother Martin, Dirk Benedict, Heather Menzies-Urich under the direction of Bernard Kowalski (‘Attack of the Giant Leeches’). Scream Factory is making it easier to get your hands on this classic piece of cinematic horror, when it’s released on DVD and Blu-ray April 26, 2016.
In Sssssss, Martin (‘Cool Hand Luke‘) and Benedict (‘Battlestar Galactica‘) star in an eerie tale of a respected snake expert who masks a frightening desire to transmute a man into a king cobra. Realizing 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.
