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.)

2.SNAKE SISTERS (1984, Celso Ad. Castillo, Philippines)

3.GHOST SNAKE (1966, Rut Sethapakdee, Thailand)

4.MOTHER OF SNAKES (1972, Sanun Jarussilp, Thailand)

5.THE GODDESS OF GHOST SNAKE (1984, Suriyon Duangthongdee, Thailand)

(Parts of the information are from the book THE LEGEND OF THAI GHOST FILMS.)
