Cult of the Cobra (1955) is a horror film, released by Universal-International and starring Faith Domergue, Richard Long, Jack Kelly, William Reynolds and David Janssen.


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.


Production and release[edit]

Mari Blanchard started the film but actress Faith Domergue replaced her a few days after shooting began. The film was released as a double bill with Revenge of the Creature.


The film is a cult favorite, as most of the actors starring in the film later had their own TV series.
