"First he caught one snake... Then HUNDREDS more!... Then he trained them all to kill!"

This is a Hong Kong horror/softcore porn movie from the 70s with lots of snakes and a a few lizards.

Zhihong is a sick and sadistic young man in Hong Kong who is bullied, robbed, and brokenhearted. He turns to using snakes that follow his commands to kill people.

In a horrible scene, he also uses some monitor lizards to attack a woman who is tied up and helpless. I told you he was sadistic. This is one of the rare uses of lizards as weapons in a movie that I've seen.

These are probably Common Water Monitors, varanus salvator, which is the species native to Hong Kong.
