Movie Info

The Boxer's Omen director Kuei Chi Hung returns to the helm for this notorious Shaw Brothers shocker about a meek young misfit who rescues a wounded snake, and uses his psychic bond with the cold-blooded creature to seek bitter revenge against his many tormentors. Chen Chih-hung (Kam Kwok-leung) is a quiet loner who lives in the country near a noted haven for reptiles. One day, after an injured snake slithers across his doorstep, Chen takes pity on the poor creature and decides to nurse it back to health. In the process, the disgruntled country bumpkin discovers to his surprise that he can communicate with reptiles. Destitute, sexually frustrated, and pushed to the breaking point by the fellow villagers who make him the butt of their every joke, the vengeful Chen rounds up as many of his scaly new friends as possible and sets out on a perverse mission of vengeance so shocking it has the power to make even human blood run cold.

Audience Reviews for Killer Snakes

½

Sad loser with an inherited bondage fetish makes friends with injured snakes (gall bladder removed and served as delicacy) and they become his vehicle of vengeance. Shaw Bros. production with no kung fu, but lots of nudity and animals were probably harmed during the making of this film.

Hard to Beleive the Shaw Brothers had anything to do with this, should have been Snake Boy. 42nd Street Cinima comes to mind. To long and drawn out, got latenight nothing else on movies

Who knew that Shaw Bros. did sleaze? Not I, until now. This goes places with snakes that even SoaP didn't go. Very sordid stuff, highly melodramatic, and at times difficult to watch due to actual snakes being harmed.
