Snakes Run Amok

This is an alphabetical list of movies in which deadly snakes attack people because someone is controlling them with magic or witchcraft
or because they have been altered in some way from their natural state by scientific experiments,
environmental changes, chemicals or some other from of contamination.
These are similar to Giant Monster Snake Movies, in that the snakes are terrorizing people, but with many normal-sized snakes.
There is also some overlap with the Snakes Used as Weapons list. This list is taken from the complete Snakes in Movies List.
