Critic Reviews for Sssssss

All Critics (9)

Strother Martin offers an interesting variation on the usual mad scientist: He's a genuinely sweet, considerate and kind man, with his heinous blind spots due to an unhealthy dedication to science rather than any inherent evil.

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.

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?
