release year: 1966
genre: Hammer horror
viewing setting: home DVD, 11/28/99
what I expected: no idea
what I got: mediocre horror movie

synopsis: A humanoid snake is running around a small town killing people.

impressions: Decent enough acting, script, sets, etc - but it just wasn't that exciting. The question quickly became, not what was the reptile, but WHO was the reptile. Of note: swelling black faces of bitten victims, weird Oriental guy running around grinning.

body count: A measly 4.

acting: Decent, nothing to write home about.

final word: Okay, but no huge body count or scares.

rating: C-
