The cult of the cobra

1955

If you were in the military over seas I’m sure the first thing you’d do is to sneak in to see an ancient ritual. You know the ritual where a woman turns into a snake. Even though you told numerous times not to take pictures you still did. This of course got all the snake worshippers mad and trying to kill you and your buddies. Then since you drunk you grabbed the basket containing the snake/woman in it and fled the temple leaving you friends to fight their way out. Of course you wouldn’t do that, but that’s how this film starts. The idiot  guy who took the snake basket is bitten and dies. The others think this business is over, but of course it isn’t. Then no too long after this mess the guys all go back to the states and become  civilians. Well, that curse won’t give up and the snake woman follows the guys back to New York. There she hooks up with one the guys and begins killing the others one at a time. Eventually one of the smarter guys in the group becomes wise to what is going on here. Eventually the snake woman meets her/it’s end. Roll those credits.

The negatives-The budget is low and the sets are cramped, but you should expect that going in.

The positives-Overall this solid little film that all too often gets lost in the jumble of 1950’s monster flicks. This film has a decent cast (most of the guys went on to star in shows in the 1960’s) that elevate the simple script. The makers of the film also do a decent job of building the suspense. Really a good film that fans

I have watched far too many horror and sc-fi shows in my life. Now I feel the need to share this wealth of knowledge and make others suffer.

  1. I didn’t mind it. Decent at best.
