Deep in the Brazilian Rainforest, a river barge makes its way up the Amazon. Aboard is a documentary film crew with a dream assignment: to track down the legendary Shirishama Indians-- the people of the Mist! But during a violent storm, the crew rescues a mysterious stranger, Paul Sarone (Jon Voight), whose boat has stalled on the river. Charismatic and charming, Sarone professes a vast knowledge of the Shirishama and volunteers to lead the filmmakers directly to the elusive tribe. But the manipulative Sarone is actually a poacher in pursuit of his own mad dream: a lethal 40-foot anaconda, the largest and most vicious killer snake in the world! And so begins a terrifying journey into a nightmare as Sarone literally leads his unwilling followers into the jaws of death... an adventure few will live to tell.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A trashily entertaining reptilian version of Jaws set in the steaming heart of the Amazon rain forest.
Rotten: A silly and plodding Jaws rip-off about a 40-foot man-eating snake on the prowl in the Brazilian rain forest.
Rotten: Anaconda is about a snake that eats everybody. That about says it all.
Rotten: Anaconda is trying to be a Jaws for the '90s, but, like last year's The Ghost and the Darkness, it falls short in several key areas.
