Critic Reviews for Cobra Woman

Although not a musical, Cobra Woman functions as one, boasting Naja's orgiastic undulating cobra dance and the mellifluous ring of Montez's thickly accented line delivery.

Decades later, it's easy to see why this Maria Montez exotic adventure became a cult item and a campy picture for gay and straight viewers.

Adventure filled with spectacle and brilliant color.

A deliciously detestable Hollywood relic; a bad movie that knows how to be good.

Audience Reviews for Cobra Woman


I don't know what the big deal is about this movie being campy, it seemed like a normal weird island secret cult movie to me, I've seen other movies like that before and this isn't anything different. I wouldn't consider this campy or a cult classic or anything, it's just a silly island horror movie.
