Goofs

The film depicts a python with fangs, but pythons actually kill through strangulation, not through venom; a python's fangs do not contain enough venom to kill. See more »

Whether you wish to admit it or not, this was the best giant man-eating snake movie of the year. In spite of the absolutely terrible acting by the alleged humans, the oscar winning performance of the snake, and this should project the snake into many more character roles, gives reason to watch this movie. Be sure to have a good supply of hankies because the ending is a real tear-jerker.
