This one is for my wife.  She remembers a movie that had the lead actor dreaming that he's going down a flight of stairs and at the end is a snake who tries to eat him.  Or something.  That's how she remembers it. We've been searching for this one for at least six years.  Help!!! Question

Dreamscape?

Yeah, that sounds like Dreamscape where Dennis Quaid enters the dream of a young boy and they are pursued by a "Snakeman" down these really funky, nightmarish stairs before having to confront him at the bottom.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Freddy was eating a woman, not a man, but it was in Nightmare on Elm Street III if you want to check it out.

A snake man features prominently in Dreamscape, as mentioned.  (spoiler alert!)







At the end of the movie, a man gets into an elevator and is eaten by a snake man.  That's a loose match for your wife's memory.

Isn't there a bunch of stuff about "snakes and ladders" in Lair Of The White Worm? Maybe a dream sequence?

Yes, there is a bunch of stuff about "Snakes and Ladders" in "Lair of the White Worm," and the villainess in the film uses the  board game to seduce an innocent boy scout, she has picked up, while he was a thumbing a ride in the rain.

There are also a couple of dream sequences in the film. In one, the heroine climbs a flight of stairs, touches a crucifix that has been sprayed with snake venom and has a dream about Christ being devoured on the cross by a snake. And in the other, one of the heros has a dream about being in a SST,  that is filled with snake symbolism, and at the end of the dream, he climbs down a flight of stairs into the light.

But, the film that SoulofFire is refering to, is most likely "Dreamscape." I saw it, when it was first released, and I wish I remember more about it, but it was only that one time, and it has been along time ago.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
