Movie Quote(s):
  • Kogen: You are a real and a bonified genius. First one I ever met. Dr. Carl Stoner: It's rare to be appreciate from one of his failures.
  • Dr. Carl Stoner: I think I can turn to live with animals. They are so placid, so self contained. I stand and look at then long and long. They do not sweat and imply about their condition; They do not lay awake in the dark and weep for their sins; They do not make me sick discussing their duty to god. Not one is dissatisfied; not one is demented with the mania of owning things; not one kneels to another, nor to his kind who lived thousands of years ago; not one is respectable, or unhappy over the whole earth. Walt Whitman, Harry. Great man.
Movie Trivia:
  • This film was released by Universal as a double feature with The Boy Who Cried Werewolf (1973), making the program one of the last double bills released by the studio.
  • The poisonous snakes were not defanged during production. Five King Cobras were imported from Thailand for this feature, they ranged from 10-15' in length. They were recently wild caught and in good health with full venom capabilities. The "Snake Park" milking scenes were real and meant to mimic what Bill Haast did at his Serpentarium in Florida daily. About one ounce of venom was collected during each take with no harm to the snakes. A different cobra was used for each take. The filming of this part of the movie took most of a day, as the cobras spent most of their time trying to escape the fenced enclosure rather than raising up in the traditional cobra attack mode.
  • The library was a real herpetological library
  • The film debut of actor Reb Brown.
  • The title for the films release in Spain was "Ssssilbido de muerte", which translates to "Hiss of Death" in English.
