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

Only a snake with a brain could have got into that room last night and singled out that same kid. It's almost as if... well, it's absurd, but... as if he were meant to go that way.

Francis D. Lyon directed this horror tale that begins after WWII ends, where six American G.I.s,(among them Richard Long, Marshall Thompson, and David Janssen) stationed in Asia sneak into the secret ceremonies of a cult of snake worshipers, where they see a snake turn into a woman(or so it seems) they are discovered but escape, though the cult leader curses them with their avenging snake goddess. When one of them dies shortly later from a snake bite, they dismiss it as coincidence, but when they return home, and more start dying, it's obvious that something followed them home. Could it be attractive newcomer Lisa(played by Faith Domergue)? Interesting premise mishandled in failed thriller. No attempt is made to recreate a post-war feel, and even worse, Faith Domergue is far too human to be believed as anything else, though the acting is otherwise fine.
