Ththththulsssa Doom!

Also:
In Dreamscape, the main antagonist lackey telepath guy takes a serpent-man form in a dream because somebody had a fear about snakes (the little kid? the hero? might have to rewatch that again-- it's been ages).

In "V" the Resistance called the Visitors "Snakes," although it could be debated if they were snakes or lizards.

The Serpent & the Rainbow (1988) had a lot of snake imagery.

In the Doctor Who episodes "Kinda" and "Snakedance," the Mara was a snake.

Oh oh oh oh-- Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! turns himself into a snake.

The Golden Child's Kala was a snake.

Well, yeah. It's generally regarded as a bad film (guilty pleasure for me) but there's something about CGI snakes that just take away the charm of physical props. So I was busting its chops. Then again it got 4 sequels so maybe it did more for snakes than any other franchise.

Pretty sure it was the kid. Great movie, haven't seen it in a while.

Diana could at least unhinge her jaw to eat, isn't that a snake trait?

I remember being somewhat shocked by that as a kid.

It is highly possible that the film version (1982) helped a lot to catalyze the popularity of 1980s snake-themed characters in pop culture.

I've juste noticed that the symbol of Thulsa Doom is nearly the same than the symbol on Mumm-Ra's chest and Mumm-Ra first appeared in 1985 ! \:\-\)




It is one the 1980s cult movies that I have yet to watch. \:\-\)

I've just learned that it was released in 1984, the same year than 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'.

I like this movie. \:\-\)

Somehow, I don't know why, in my head, I always think of it as a John Carpenter movie, even though it is a Wes Craven movie.

Curiously enough, I don't know why but I know many people who actually like the movie. I should try to watch it. \:\-\)

Because the kids demand sexy snake ladies.

BraveStarr needs a live-action!

Jake The Snake Roberts


Magic Snakes "fireworks"

Medusa from Clash Of The Titans

The copyright says 1991 but I'm sure there were plenty of snake cartoons in The Far Side in the 80s.
