Eva (Laura Gemser), an exotic dancer using a big snake in her act, attracts the attention of Judas (Jack Palance), a millionaire living a hermit-like life and usually preferring the company of snakes to that of humans. However, he is so fascintated by her dance that he pays her to be his companion - nothing more. Though Eva essentially feels like the latest addition to his collection, she for some reason trusts Judas, and soon she comes to enjoy the wealth he can offer her, and she indulges in a lesbian relationship with Gerri (Michele Starck) - something which Judas is not opposed to.

Judas' brother Jules (Gabriele Tinti) though is a bit of a loose gun, and he is very attracted to Eva - who feels somehow attracted to him as well. One night, when his brother is out, Jules secretly lets Judas' King Mamba loose in Eva's bedroom - and eventually the snake bites Gerri ... and unfortunately the King Mamba's poison kills within minutes. Somehow though, there is no evidence pointing to Jules, and what's more, he has a perfect alibi, and since the chief of police is a good friend of Judas, the whole affair is soon hushed up.

To come over her loss, Judas is even willing to pay for Eva's romantic holiday with Jules on a remote island ... but Eva has long found out that Jules has really killed her lover and now she wants revenge, revenge like the locals have it: She has a snake inserted into Jules' rectum and has the snake eat its way out ... ouch.

Eva returns to Judas and wants to pick up where they left off - but even though Judas understands why Eva had to kill his brother, he cannot take her back ... so she commits suicide before his very eyes, performing a sexy dance with Judas' own King Mamba until it bites ...

 

In the mid-1970's, Joe D'Amato made quite a number of entertaining sexploitation flicks, and especially his Black Emanuelle series (also starring Laura Gemser) is worth mentioning. Eva Nera however is one of D'Amato's weaker efforts, an ill-balanced blend of erotica and murder mystery - and in this instant, sex and crime prove to be uneasy bedfellows (I never thought I'd ever say that), and for the most part the film changes indecisively between the two, not at all helped by the many travelogue-like sequences thrown in for good (?) measure. What remains is an amusingly hammy performance by Jack Palance, and the always lovely Laura Gemser, who gets naked a lot - but somehow this is not enough to carry the film ...
