Hot on the heels of the phenomenally successful boy-and-his-killer-rat movie, WILLARD (1972), and its sequel, BEN (1972), came this stomach-churning epic about a crazed Vietnam vet of Seminole Indian descent and his pet rattlesnake, Stanley. War experiences in Southeast Asia have caused

Tim Ochopee (Chris Robinson) to find solace in the company of snakes, and he soon breeds a whole shack full of them, setting up a snake empire with Stanley and his mate, Hazel, as the reptilian king and queen. Trouble looms on the horizon when a rich snakeskin apparel manufacturer, Richard

Thomkins (Alex Rocco), offers to buy Tim's snakes. The nature-loving vet refuses; he would never consider selling his friends to a man who would slaughter them for wallets, purses, and shoes. Outraged, Thomkins swears vengeance and hires a psychopathic hit man (Paul Avery) to do the dirty work.

Luckily, Stanley and company slither to Tim's rescue. Wretched in every respect, STANLEY would be an entirely laughable affair if it wasn't so disturbingly gross. The very concept of this film insults Vietnam vets, Seminole Indians, snake aficionados, strippers, and wallet manufacturers.
