I've seen worse films, but maybe if it was just balls-to-the-wall awful, I would've been hootin' and hollarin', instead of yawnin' and snorin'. It's just plain forgettable.

Too stupid and mean-spirited to be amusingly bad.

Super Reviewer

Sssssssilly offering from Universal Studios about a mad scientist* and his quest to turn men into venomous cobras.

*Somehow ironic that the scientist's name is "Dr. Stoner". Freudian slip?
