Cobra Woman

COBRA WOMAN. 1944

Director: Robert Siodmak

Reviewed by Paghat the Ratgirl



Maria Montez stars in the titular role of Naja (whose name is the sanskrit word meaning "Cobra"). She also plays her own benevolent twin, Tollea.

The action takes place on a Pacific Island over which Cobra Woman rules with a femme fatale's ill graces. Unwelcome visitors are as a rule tossed to the Volcano God. Supporting cast includes Sabu & Lon Chaney, Jr.

High camp & garish Technocolor has justified this awful film as a classic of the "dreadful masterpiece" variety.
