Jennifer Daniel in The Reptile

This is a nice still from The Reptile (1966), one of Hammer’s more inspired cinematic efforts. The horror flick starred Welsh actress Jennifer Daniel (left). She was from Pontypool. Here she is looking remarkably calm after discovering the latest victim of the snake woman. Horror aficionados will know that a bite from her causes the heart to stop, the face to blacken, and the mouth to froth. But not necessarily in that order.

As far as her career in horror films went, Jennifer specialised in looking vulnerable and walking innocently into situations where you just knew something terrible was about to happen. Also catch her in another decent Hammer outing, The Kiss of the Vampire (1963).
