"What, so your tellin' me there's some snake orgy in the jungle!", 20 February 2005
Author: Backlash007 from Kentucky

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. The sequel that no one asked for. I guess since the Sci-fi Channel plays a giant snake movie EVERY weekend, studio execs figured there must be an audience for this tripe. Plot: an attractive cast of almost famous people go for a boat ride in the middle of the jungle and are attacked by giant snakes. Yeah, it's pretty much just like the first film, except J-lo is no where in sight so I guess that makes it a little bit better. I felt sorry for Jon Voight for making an appearance in the original. This time I feel sorry for director Dwight Little. He directed the underrated Halloween 4 and his older films are far superior to Anacondas. The script is by the numbers so don't expect any surprises. The only surprise I found was that the computer-generated snakes have come a long way from the original film. Stay tuned for Anaconda vs. Boa vs. Python.
