From legendary producer Roger Corman comes a drive-in horror classic! After being bitten by a very unusual cobra, a beautiful nurse (Marlene Clark) can turn herself into a snake and remain eternally young. However, to keep her youthful exterior, the cursed priestess requires a steady supply of venom -- and lusty young men at her beck and call to steal their youth! But trouble occurs when she falls for the boyfriend of a beautiful snake expert (Joy Bang), and he brings along a pet eagle. Can she make a choice between a mortal male and her cobra god Movini? Now watch this long-unavailable cult classic from a brand new HD master from the original vault elements!

Comments:

NOTE: The below Blu-ray captures were taken directly from the Blu-ray disc.

The Scorpion Releasing 1080P transfer is in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio on a single-layered Blu-ray with a high bitrate. The HD presentation looks better than I would have thought although does have plenty of speckles and light damage marks (see last capture). It is bright with a few 'jaggies' and has some consistency but overall it was decent enough in-motion with some surprising attributes.

Scorpion Releasing use a DTS-HD Master 2.0 at 24-bits.  There are plenty of effects in the film from the heist and chases etc.. The production does not require extensive depth - what is there is exported with ease.
The score is composed by  Filipino-born Restie Umali and suits the film's exotic atmosphere. There are no subtitles on the region FREE Blu-ray disc.

Scorpion include an interesting 22-minute interview with Marlene Clark (titular Cobra Woman) that has value, plus a short interview with Roger Corman and some trailers. Not bad....

Night of the Cobra Woman is a sloppy but fun mix stealing parts of Robert Siodmak's 1944 Cobra Woman and 1960's The Leech Woman. It has some animal-cruelty and a murder scene in the beginning. The a/v presentation is better than anticipated - as is the film entertainment-value - and it has extras. Those keen should indulge in
this Blu-ray while it's still available. Good, , modestly sleazy, baaaad cinema! Thumbs skyward!
