    I entered this movie with the expectation that it would be awful, and maybe having the bar set so low was why I actually ended up enjoying it, but I did. It is totally ridiculous but it was highly entertaining, maybe not for the reasons it intended but it is.

    The snake is ridiculous. And not just because it's animated with mid-90s technology. It defies physics and does those stupid reptile screams (courtesy of Frank Welker!) you only hear in the worst creature features. As if a forty-foot long snake that practically flies isn't scary enough. Worse, no one seems to call attention to the fact that it's fucking supernatural, like it's assumed all constrictor snakes in the Amazon are this badass. Sure, Jon Voight, who is channeling Robert Shaw…

    "Last time I was in water like this, I was up all night picking leeches off my scrotum!"

    What could go wrong when you go into the Amazon to film a documentary? You could meet an evil weirdo who is a snake hunter and ex-priest, played by the hilariously hammy Jon Voight. You could encounter a parade of terrifying wildlife and plants. You could also meet giant anacondas on several occasions.

    This seems like a dream come true for a…

    i love that there was so clearly no research done to figure out how snakes work. the snakes are what people remembered snakes looking like but they didn't check to make sure they were right by just looking at a couple pictures of real snakes.

    You know what? The snake effects totally hold up, animatronics and CG both. As one the cheesiest killer animal movies of them all, the effects do exactly what they're supposed to do and that's be the showcase of a cheesy giant snake movie. The best moments are of the snake attacking and the best shot comes from inside the snake as it's swallowing Jon Voight, and it looks great! It's a shoddy movie in every other respect but hey, the…

    I hadn't seen this since I was like 13, so let's consider this a first watch. I don't even know how to rate it, because some of it was laughably and enjoyably incompetent, some of it was painfully incompetent, some of it was bafflingly incompetent, and some of it was depressingly incompetent. I don't know how much I was entertained, but I had morbid curiosity throughout wondering how this could have made it to theatres. A+ on Jon Voight for constantly trying to make the most ridiculous facial expressions possible the entire film.

    The slow burning tension and genuine creep-out effect of the first half is quickly thrown away for cheap thrills and crazy deaths in the second. Although it's kept going by Jon Voight's hammed up villain, which makes for good entertainment in plot and character interactions when the big bad isn't slithering its way onto the screen. Just the thought of being in the same body of water as a giant snake is enough to freak me out however, so while the second half is more action than horror, it still made my skin crawl.

    Extra half-star for Voight.

    As far as monster movies go, I definitely prefer Creature from the Black Lagoon derivatives over many other options (but mostly because I love jungles, rivers, and jungle-rivers).

    Rewatching this also took me back to the good old days when stuff like this could still end up in theaters, rather than straight to the Syfy channel.

    Danny Trejo shoots himself in the head in the first few minutes and he turns out to be the smartest character in the entire movie.
