Snakes and Skulls in Movies

This is an alphabetical list of movies with snakes and skulls in them, taken from the main Snakes in Movies List.

Snakes and skulls are often found on biker tattoos. Google it - you'll find hundreds of images. And they're sometimes found in movies. Most of the time snakes are seen crawling out of a human skull (or the skull of a dessicated corpse) but sometimes they're found in an animal skull. Why use such a creepy image? It's supposed to be a symbol of the cycle of life and death or death and rebirth, but basically, it just looks cool.

You can see more pictures and read a description of the snake scenes by following the title link.

Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching a film.
