HOLY SNAKES

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 11:19 am

I think it’s interesting that holy snakes are presented in many films, especially Cambodian films and some films in the Philippines and Thailand, such as

1.DARNA (1951, Fernando Poe, Philippines)
In this film, the villainess Valentina has snake hair, like Medusa.

(This is a photo of Darna and Valentina from another work, not from the film above.)
