6 Of The Deadliest Movie Snakes Of All Time
While some people are fascinated by snakes and even keep them as pets, most people are scared of them and would run for the hills if they knew a snake was close. Many movie characters have the same type of reaction when they are forced to confront a snake. Fear is the most prominent emotion when snakes hit the big screen, and there have been some memorable snake scenes that will get an emotional reaction. Here are scenes that involve six of the deadliest movie snakes of all time.
"Snakes On A Plane" (2006). This was one of the most shocking film titles of all time. When trailers for this movie came out, it immediately became a hot water cooler topic because what could be more horrifying to contemplate than an overwhelming amount of poisonous snakes on an airplane? The movie used both live snakes and computer-driven images. Some of the scenes were excruciating while others where laughable.
"Kill Bill, Volume 2" (2004). In this movie that focuses on violence, Budd has finished a job and just gotten paid with a suitcase full of cash by Elle Driver. However, this is not just a suitcase with money in it; there's another little bonus. When Budd opens it to celebrate his riches, he finds a bite-happy black mamba. Named because of the color of its mouth, the black mamba is among the deadliest snakes on the planet. Bill finds this out first hand when he gets bit and soon expires.
"Casino Royale" (2006). One of the scenes in this James Bond thriller features a cobra vs. mongoose fight to the death in the open market in Madagascar. In most fights between these two animals, the super-quick mongoose comes out on top. In this fight, the Indian cobra won, much to the delight of the people that bet on the cobra.
"Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" (1984). Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) is horrified by snakes twice in this film. Once in the meal she has with the Monkey Brains when she is served live snakes in Snake Surprise. The other encounter comes when she is in the jungle, and she feels what she thinks is an elephant's trunk over her shoulder. It is actually an Indian python. She unwittingly grabs it and throws it backwards.
"Conan The Barbarian" (1982). When Conan is forced to fight Thulsa Doom, the leader of a snake cult, he is dealing with a man who can change himself into a snake. The snake cult leader is surrounded by snakes, and most of them are huge boa constrictors with at least one anaconda. One of the boas has huge fangs, and that's not realistic, but it makes the snake scarier in this movie.
"We're No Angels" (1955). In this movie, Albert (Aldo Ray) has a pet viper named Adolphe. Albert lives on Devil's Island and Adolphe kills two criminals who have made their way onto the island. In the movie, Adolphe spends most of his time in the cage, but it's clear his bite is responsible for their deaths. Jules (Peter Ustinov) says that the viper enjoys listening to music, a very curious statement since snakes are deaf.
