Over many years, a brilliant scientist in a turn of the century English village successfully keeps his wife's mental illness under control by injecting her with snake venom. When the wife dies giving birth to a daughter, a local witch claims that the child is pure evil and must be destroyed. The scientist is killed by an angry mob, but the baby girl is miraculously saved with the help of an understanding doctor. 19 years later several corpses are discovered on the moors, containing lethal amounts of snake poison. Fearful villagers believe the curse of the snake woman has struck, but a young Scotland Yard inspector is sceptical of the supernatural as he begins his investigation.

    Critical reception

    The Snake Woman The Snake Woman 1960 HORRORPEDIA
  • Video Confidential wrote, "obviously hoping to ride the wave of success that Hammer studios were enjoying, this black-and-white programmer blatantly misses all the cues that would insure even the slightest spark of box office fire. The script is clumsy, overly-talkative and there is practically no action to allieviate the plodding pace."
  • Drewe Shimon described the film in Britmovie as "neither underrated nor a classic. What it is is a competent enough B-movie programmer, entertaining in its own way and enjoyable enough to fit into the ‘cosy horror’ subgenre."
