Awesomely Bad Movies isn’t just about making fun of new movies; there’s a whole world of crappy old flicks worth making jokes about. And this is where we find this week’s movie — a 1973 “horror” movie called Sssssss. No, I didn’t fall asleep on the keyboard, that’s actually what they named this film.
Enjoy a movie where people who raise and handle boa constrictors and king cobras are considered normal and people who are afraid of those things are the weird ones. For seemingly no reason at all, a scientist decides to turn his lab assistant into a snake using hallucinogenic injections that apparently make someone look all snakey but doesn’t kill them. The subject of these trials is Dirk Benedict, better known later in his career as Starbuck on the original Battlestar Galactica and Face on The A-Team. Let’s all try to remember THOSE performances, shall we?
Next week, we go back to the present, and the future even, for a movie that just might be the nadir of Will Smith’s career. Can you guess what it is?
