Newly restored DCP! Snakes don't eat people - at least not until this 1997 action/adventure crapsterpiece, back on the big screen with an enlightening introduction by a live reptile expert. 

Could a giant, killer snake really be lurking in the Amazon jungle waiting to gobble bad-asses Jennifer Lopez and Ice Cube? Find out in this modern cult classic, nominated for six Razzie awards, including Worst New Star "The Animatronic Anaconda".

Before the film, amphibian and reptile expert William P. Leonard (co-author of "Amphibians of the Pacific Northwest", "Land Snails and Slugs of the Pacific Northwest", and "How to Photograph Reptiles and Amphibians") goes deep into the belly of the slithering beast with the true facts about our scaly friends. But don't expect him to explain Jon Voight's accent!

A program of Science on Screen, an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theater with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
