Movie Info

What happens when you cross an African King Cobra with an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake? You get one extremely large and ill-tempered reptile, and he's on the loose in the horror opus King Cobra. Dr. Irwin Burns (Joseph Ruskin) is developing an experimental drug that will increase aggression in humans and animals, so he breeds the perfect animal to test it on -- "Seth," a cobra/rattlesnake mix that's more intelligent than the average snake, much larger (30 feet long) and a good bit more

Audience Reviews for King Cobra

Highly enjoyable entertainment right here. The best thing about it is the snake itself. 100% (I think), practical effects. A huge puppet that isn't slow or mechanical. The cast are obviously from the low end of the market, but they give the film more than a giant killer snake film deserves. I really liked the kills, as unoriginal as they were they progressed in a way that didn't always glorify the act. It even manages to cram in a very dramatic scene between Pat Morita and a huge cobra and Erik Estrada being as camp as Christmas. That's impressive film making.
