Cult of the Cobra (1955) + The Wasp Woman (1959)
A double-bill of she-creature features, the sultry Curse of the Cobra (1955) and exploitation The Wasp Woman (1959).
We talk about two curious creature features from the 1950s: the very sultry Curse of the Cobra (1955) and Roger Corman's exploitation film The Wasp Woman (1959).
I’m joined in this episode by writer Virginie Selavy to discuss Corman's penchant for strong women, the questionable special effects, and the snake POV shots.
