Intermediate grade-B horror film
24 August 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

During World-War II, a nurse is bitten by a cobra in a cave. She survives, and is blessed with eternal life, beauty, and a highly lethal sexual prowess. She cohabitates in the cave with the cobra(which she has named "Movini"), and utilizes its powerful venom for all sorts of surprising practicalities...as a healing agent, fertilizer, nail polish remover, etc.

Flash to modern times(1972)...pretty, young Joy Bang(fetching ingénue of many films of this type during the 70s)is a UNICEF researcher working to develop antivenoms. She hears about the reclusive snake-lady, and naturally goes snooping around her cave. Things heat up when Ms. Bang's pet eagle(!) kills Movini, and her boyfriend becomes the serpentine seductress's new "boy toy"...all hell proceeds to break loose in a rather insouciant and formulaic fashion.

The theatrical poster's image and tagline deceitfully suggested this film to be about a woman in lustful, taboo concupiscence with a large snake. It's not. What it *is*, however, is a sufficiently entertaining low-budgeter which might register as slightly above average due to able performances and higher-than-usual production values for a quickie flick of its particular feather. Despite these minuscule endowments, however, NIGHT OF THE COBRA WOMAN remains a very modest production and a far-from-crucial viewing experience.
