Storyline

In this sequel to Sharktopus, two Piranhacondas hunt down their stolen egg. The scientist who stole the egg hitchikes the island and meets up with a movie crew on-set of filming. The star, the scientist, and some crew-members get kidnapped by some money-craving people who put them on ransom for some dough. Meanwhile, a Piranhaconda roams the island, along the way eating an island-goer, and some scientists searching for a rare flower. The snake comes to the kidnappers' hideout and attacks. The crew and the scientist escape. The lead kidnapper finds a camera and realizes that the scientist stole the egg, which caused the snake to attack, and he decides to kill the snake, and the crew. The snake follows the crew, who are in a truck, but is wounded by a grenade. The second Piranhaconda arrives and, sensing blood, attacks its wounded mate. It then decides to track down the crew. The scientist reveals that he had the egg, so they try to escape via boat. But the Piranhaconda stalls their ... Written by Anonymous

When Rick leaves the beach to go water the plants, you can hear the sound of him urinating. When the camera takes a shot from the right, the sound can still be heard, but no urine is seen leaving his body. The stream should be visible from this angle. See more »

Highly enjoyable creature feature
14 August 2015 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

When a low-budget movie shoot stumbles upon a massive snake/killer fish hybrid living in the jungle near their shoot, they try to find a way to get away from the creature and the terrorist squad in the area intending on holding them for ransom.

This was an absolutely impressive creature feature that's an absolute blast to watch. Among the best qualities on display is that this is just cheesy and goofy enough to be really enjoyable, and that this one manages to do so the entire time is an even better accomplishment. That almost everything in here does make for an entertaining cheesy good time as this is filled to the brim with lots of action including the shorter attacks of the opening group at the waterfall, a nice chase through the swamps as it stalks a crew-member, a later scene of the scientists getting attacked and the rather fun ambush on the vacationing couple on the secluded beach that there's a lot to like here about the shorter attacks here. While those are a lot of fun, its biggest scenes are the attacks on the hideout with the charge against the kidnappers to free the group being fun enough, but it's really the final part here with the massive gunfight between the two forces that brings the explosive charges of their big trap into focus which brings the creature in which the snake's antics of ambush kills make for an entertaining cheesy good time that plays out in tons of kills and even a few surprisingly- suspenseful moments full of great action that carries along into the finale quite well. The majority of the enjoyment from here comes in the film's high-level of cheese featured, from the utterly dreadful-looking CGI creature to the cheesy slasher movie being shot, and with the creature's origins also painting quite a cheesy picture here, there's plenty of fun, cheesy antics throughout here that are a lot of fun. While there her are what make this one enjoyable, there's a few problems that hold this down. The biggest problem here is the film's rather problematic story, which is quite haphazard and lazy. This one here does a fine enough job with the creature until it gets to its origins, as the fact that this is explained as a factual creature is a bit of a stretch because it claims to actually exist as a legendary guardian spirit. This is quite hard to fathom the reasoning behind this when it worked perfectly fine as an ordinary mutation running amok. As well, the terrorist inclusion into the story makes no sense when their body-count would've worked better as cast or crew-members on the film to achieve the same effect, and the event featured in the finale are pretty unrealistic merely to keep the film going. The other big flaw here is the rather goofy-looking CGI that's pretty hard to ignore here as the creature tends to go through all the usual motions of changing size and proportions from time-to-time, gives an appearance of being obvious about the nature of its execution and coming along the inability to remain connected to the action on-screen. Otherwise this is a fine and worthwhile effort.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Nudity and Language.
