This one is a real bomb that I could only find on VHS. Even a scene with a woman cuddling with a long-nosed snake, couldn't save it.
Once upon a time a cranky old curmudgeon named Snakey Bender collects snakes that he sells to a university. A preacher turns his friends and aquaintances against him because of his association with the creatures of the devil, as he calls them. One of the ex-friends was a grade school teacher who likes it way too much when he puts his snakes on her, another was a man he got drunk with and marches to John Phillip Sousa records every week. He starts killing them off one by one with venomous snakes. He traps one guy in a pit and throws rattlesnakes at him. He has another guy rub himself all over with a dead fish so a Cottonmouth will bite him. As the schoolteacher is enjoying a California Kingsnake, a Boa Constrictor, a Gophersnake, and even a Long-nosed Snake crawling over her body, he adds in a deadly Copperhead (played by a Corn Snake). He dangles another woman over a barrel with a Coral Snake in it until it bites her.
The snakes used are all real, including California Kingsnakes, Western Diamond-backed Rattlesnakes, an Indigo Snake, a Long-nosed Snake, a Corn Snake, a Boa Constrictor, Gopher Snakes, and what looks like a Two-striped Gartersnake passing for a Cottonmouth.
