Moria gives it 3 out of 5 stars and says, "where Cult of the Cobra tries to copy Cat People, it succeeds" and, "There is some often moody black-and-white photography and Lyon experiments with all manner of cinematographic ideas". DVD Beaver calls it "Great fun!"
Gore Girls Dungeon calls it a
"damn good watch" and says, "The acting is decent across the board. The G.I.’s have a good chemistry and the casual conversation felt natural. Cult of the Cobra has an intriguing opening and not too much downtime before the action begins. The film looks good and they include a particularly neat pov shot through a snake’s eye.DVD Talk says, "the film is enjoyable because of its interesting characters."
