Subhuman kidnappers must contend with mutiny, police bullets, and wicked venomous snakes.
Behind the drapes… Between the walls… In your bed…
It was supposed to be the perfect crime: the sexy maid (Susan George, STRAW DOGS), a psychotic chauffeur (Oliver Reed, THE BROOD) and an international terrorist (the legendary Klaus Kinski!) kidnap a wealthy 10-year-old boy from his elegant London townhouse. But they didn’t count on a murdered cop, a desperate hostage siege, and one very unexpected houseguest: a furious Black Mamba, the most lethal and aggressive snake known to nature. It can attack from ten feet away. Its bite brings excruciating death. And it is on the loose. Now, terror knows no antidote… and the ultimate in slithering mayhem is VENOM.
Sterling Hayden (THE KILLING), Nicol Williamson (EXCALIBUR) and Sarah Miles (BLOW-UP) co-star in this gripping suspense thriller based on the novel by best-selling author Alan Scholefield and directed by Piers Haggard (THE BLOOD ON SATAN’S CLAW). VENOM has been newly transferred in 2K High Definition from its negative and features very real — and extremely deadly — Black Mambas!
