Watchable Italian giallo set in Kenya.
2 February 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

The action of Bitto Albertini's "Human Cobras" takes place in Stockholm,New York and Nairobi in Kenya.The plot revolves around a former mobster Tony Garden(George Ardisson)who wants to avenge his brother's death.In New York Tony meets with sexy Erica Blanc,who played in Mario Bava's Gothic romp "Kill Baby Kill".Then the action moves to Africa where the mystery ends during/after safari near Kilimanjaro.The direction by Bitto Albertini is a bit uninspired but the location sets in lower Manhattan and Nairobi are quite atmospheric.There are some violent scenes like razor blade slashing or strangling,but don't expect any graphic gore.I particularly enjoyed Stelvio Cipriani's score and complicated plot written by Ernesto Gastaldi.7 human cobras out of 10.
