Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"Adventure filled with spectacle and brilliant color."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television

"A deliciously detestable Hollywood relic; a bad movie that knows how to be good."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A fun-filled camp fantasy melodrama about cobra worshippers on an exotic secret tropical island."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
