While stationed in Asia, six American G.I.'s witness the secret ritual of Lamians (worshipers of women who can change into serpents). When discovered by the cult, the High Lamian Priest vows that "the Cobra Goddess will avenge herself". Once back in the United States, a mysterious woman enters into their lives and accidents begin to happen. The shadow of a cobra is seen just before each death. Written by
All five of this movie's leading men later starred in at least one successful TV series: Richard Long ("The Big Valley"), Marshall Thompson ("Daktari"), William Reynolds ("The F.B.I."), Jack Kelly ("Maverick"), and David Janssen ("The Fugitive"). See more »
The cobra has a fascination. It's like looking death in the face.

Six American GIs with liberty in India want something new and different in the way of kicks. For $100.00 given to a snake charmer played by Leonard Strong they get invited to the ceremony of a cobra worshiping cult. They should have waited for advances in photography because when one of them snaps a picture and the flash goes off that sets off a wild mêlée where they have to fight for their lives to get out of there. They leave with the curse of the high priest Edward Platt threatening that all will die, one by one.
And that's just about how it happens. Back in the states the five survivors, James Dobson having died in India, start getting eliminated one by one. Only Richard Long suspects what's going on. And it all starts about the time that the mysterious and slinky Faith Domergue enters the life of another of the thrill seekers, Marshall Thompson.
For a cobra woman that Faith Domergue is sure a fox. Not hard to tell what Howard Hughes saw in her. But whatever he did see, he was over and done with her because she was doing films like Cult Of The Cobra.
As for the film it's an OK horror film with a few camp laughs in it for those who think they're above this sort of thing.
