When I posted about new DVD releases of American-Filipino coproductions the other day I forgot this one, NIGHT OF THE COBRA WOMAN, - maybe because it's not released from Vinegar Syndrome (like the other five) but instead it's out on Scorpion Releasing (run by Code Red's Bill Olson's brother).
NIGHT OF THE COBRA WOMAN (1972) is yet another Roger Corman produced flick shot in the 'Pines. Until this release the film had only been released on VHS. I haven't got the new DVD yet but according to one online source the DVD is pretty good, and it's got a few great extras on it; There are new interviews with Marlene Clark, who plays the main character, and Roger Corman. The trailer is also included and the film is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.78:1.
UPDATE (2019): Scorpion Releasing has also released the film on blu-ray!
Oooohh!! It's nice to see you back at things here Jack. I actually think I might just have seen this one late night on TV. Either that or any one of a number of 70's snake woman movies all mooshed together in my brain.ReplyDelete
Still these are so trashy and cool I may just have to spring for the DVD and see which one it is... no matter which it'll be a fun night's popcorn on the couch time.
Mistressneko!!!!! Apologies for being slow at responding but yes I'm back on the blog!! (and on the block too as I was away, lol). I'm sure it would have fitted late nite US tv so you probably did. I've seen a bootleg dvdr of it from ZDD but needless to say I had to have the new dvd. It's not a masterpiece by anybody's standards but you know me, it doesn't have to be "good" to entertain. :DDelete
