Movie Info

When former Sunday school teacher Glenda Kemp turned to stripping to work her way through college, uptight South African audiences were scandalized by her exotic routines -- particularly her nude python dance. This film tells her story. With Kemp playing herself, the film re-creates incidents from the dancer's life (including the government's efforts to ban her performances) and includes a number of her seductive routines.

Audience Reviews for Snake Dancer

The touching story of a girl and her snake. And trust me when I say this is a "touching" story. Generally I shy away from straight up sexploitation films, but since this is a Mondo Macabro release I was intrigued, and not very disappointed. It takes place in South Africa in the late seventies, when the church and politicians had the gall to frown upon a naked woman getting it on... ahem, dancing with a snake. It's a story of rebellion against repression you've seen a thousand times before, but never quite like this. Oddly enough, I had rented this years ago in the VHS days and thought this might be the same flick. I just remember being surprised... pleasantly, at how dirty it was. Nowadays though it's fairly tame, though in my older years I did enjoy the kitsch value.
