Β 
Following the same formula as Jaws, a team of anthropologists/documentary filmmakers go looking for a tribe of Indians in the Amazon rainforest and become the prey of a giant killer snake instead.
A bad movie which is watchable for all the wrong reasons, especially the ropey special effects and the unintentionally laughable performance of Jon Voight, a once fine actor committing career suicide by portraying a Venezuelan snake-hunter.
Sequels followed, somehow managing to be even worse.
3/10
