SyFy teams up with Roger Corman to bring us a TV14 bikini/ cleavage cheese fest. Michael Madsen is the smart guy in the movie.

On an island in Hawaii, tourists, criminals, a movie set, botanists, and Madsen fight an impossible combination of a creature who is native to the Amazon.

The snake is computer generated and as bad as the acting. Kills are finalized with a blood mist spray. The sound track was good as it was something I would expect from "Pulp Fiction."

This film may not be winning any awards sometime soon, but it is an enjoyable watch - especially with friends.

More utter Rubbish from a Gerne spawned by The Legendary Roger Corman.The Man who brought us the Great Poe Adaptations as well as DeathRace,now spends His time churning out Sci-Fi Channel Snake/Croc/Fish Nonsense,and He's joined for this One by Better deserving Michael Madsen.Avoid like a Piranhaconda.

I know what you're thinking. "This film looks so dreadful, it must actually be amazing!" And you'd be thinking the same thing I did.

But you're wrong.

I recently picked this up as one of the main features at my most recent "Manly Movie Night", an infrequent but always heroic event when my friends and I get together, drink beer, eat rank food, watch atrocious movies, and generally have a fantastic night in. Previous movie choices have included HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES, and MEGA SHARK VS GIANT OCTOPUS, so we are by no means discussing intelligent, intellectual entertainment here. With that out of the way, I can continue.

This film was dire.

Yes, you get awful dialogue, horrendous CGI, a dreadful soundtrack, and (almost) all the gratuitously filmed bikini you could ever hope for. Indeed, these are things that we all secretly wish for when picking up a movie of this level of quality. But despite all such redeeming features, the movie still left us three viewers that night watching it with mixed feelings.

The first of us fell asleep. The second of us decided his iPad was far more interesting during much of the presentation. And the third of us sat there in silence, wondering whether he shouldn't have just put on Commando instead.

Keep on looking - the centrepiece to your Manly Movie Night is on this site somewhere, but it isn't here!

This film is only for hardcore creature feature fans. SFX are quite obvious. Cannot recommend film, even if I have seen worse films of the genre.

OMG! What has happened to poor old Michael Madsen? The star of many great Hollywood movies such as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir dogs, Species, Kill Bill, Sin City and Donnie Brasco to name a few) Then he's slipped into making out and out dross like Piranhaconda.

Don't get me wrong, I knew this film was going to be cheesy just by the title but seeing his name on the cover gave me a little bit of hope that the film would be worth watching. How wrong was I?

The plot is awful, mad professor tries to track down a half snake, half fish creature (like this infusion is even possible) to steal it's eggs to make some quick cash. Upon doing this, the eggs parents begin to kill anyone who is on screen while trying to recover thier offspring (yeah right).

This movie is woeful, the plot is so incoherant and laughably bad that it's impossible not to get angry at the stupidity of the people involved. I found myself swearing at the tv in frustration and disbelief almost every few minutes.

The effects are unbelievable, I could do better using adobe videoshop editor on my laptop and whoever was responsible for these needs an ASBO slapping on him, to ban him from ever touching a computer again. They're awful.
I've seen ZX spectrum games from the 1980's with better graphics.

Even the gore is dire, you'd think it would be easier for the film makers to use the old corn syrup and red dye for blood splatter effects but instead, they go for CGI blood and this looks awfully fake. You see the odd arm and leg lying around and that's about it.

The music is completely out of synch with the films supposed tone and the acting is comical at best (even from Mr Madsen).

Well written, competently acted, a few cgi "issues" but all in all a good "B" type of monster movie. Don't buy this looking for Shakespeare, but if you want an okay creature flick, go ahead!!!

It was everything I expected from a movie of this type. As long as I didn't expect anything great it was okay. The snake was no better or worse than some others I have seen. actors the same. If you just want to watch something to entertain for an hour than this is for you.
