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 !
Quote: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).
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'.
Quote:The Serpent & the Rainbow (1988) had a lot of snake imagery.
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.
