Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid (also known as Anaconda 2, Anacondas 2, or just simply Anacondas) is a 2004 adventure-horror-thriller film directed by Dwight H. Little. The film is the sequel to the original 1997 film Anaconda and the second installment of the Anaconda film series. The main plot entails a team of researchers setting out into the island of Borneo to look for a sacred flower, the Blood Orchid, for which they believe will bring humans a longer and healthier life, but soon become stalked and hunted by the deadly Giant Anacondas inhabiting the island. The origin of the Giant Anaconda from the original film is also explained.

The film was followed by two sequels Anaconda 3: Offspring (2008) and Anacondas: Trail of Blood (2009), as well as the crossover Lake Placid vs. Anaconda (2015).

Plot

A native Lopak hunter attempts to flee from a creature in the jungles of Borneo. He falls into a river below only to be dragged about and pulled underwater and disappearing without a trace.

A team of researchers from Wexel Hall consisting of Samantha "Sam" Rogers, Cole Burris, Gail Stern, Dr. Jack Byron, Gordon Mitchell, and Dr. Ben Douglas sets off into the island of Borneo to search for the "Blood Orchid", a flower they believe can be used as a type of fountain of youth. The team travel across a series of rivers by the help of Bill Johnson and Tran Wu, and Bill's pet-monkey Kong. Along the way, Kong wanders away into the jungle by the river and encounters a Giant Anaconda, and disappears until next morning, scaring the crew. Bill also ends up wrestling and killing a crocodile with a knife after some in the crew had fallen aboard. Eventually, they end up deciding to take a short-cut in the wrong part of the river and ends up falling over a waterfall, destroying the boat and scattering all the gear. They later have to wade through water, and an Anaconda emerges from the water and later kills Ben (Nicholas Gonzalez), while the rest of the team escapes the river. Bill Johnson (Johnny Messner) attempts to assure them that it was the largest snake he's ever seen and that it should take weeks' for it to grow hungry again, however most of the team demands that the expedition be called off. The team decide to travel to Bill's friend, John Livingston (Andy Anderson) who lives on the river to see if he can borrow his boat and his whale. While traveling to the boat, Bill tells Sam (KaDee Strickland) about Jack bribing him into taking the unsafe route. Along the way, Bill finds an infestation of leeches on Cole's (Eugene Byrd) back and burns all of them with his lighter while Tran Wu (Karl Yune) finds a poisonous spider in Gordon Mitchell's (Morris Chestnut) shoe.

Jack decides to take the spider along for further study and then everyone resumes the journey to the boat. However, Livingston is killed by another Anaconda and his boat crashes into the riverbank. The team sees an explosion and finds the boat wrecked and are disappointed for losing their chance for escape from the jungle and find only a few essentials for their quest. While continuing their journey, they find Ben's regurgitated corpse. Bill realizes that it must be mating season, which means all of the male Anacondas come out of their territories to find the nearest female in its mating pit. The team find themselves in a small native village consisting of thatched huts where a disemboweled Anaconda with a pair of human legs hanging out of the snake's abdomen is displayed. The team speculates that the snakes are unusually large in size because their lives have been extended through the orchids, which are a part of the local food chain. Jack says that since they must be close to the orchids, they should press on. However the others contend that there is no evidence that the orchids will have the same effect on humans, and learn of Jack making decisions behind their backs that resulted in them being stranded in the jungle and refuse to go to the orchid and want to leave, so they start building an escape raft.

Meanwhile, Gordon discovers that Jack had secretly obtained Livingston's private case containing a radio and a gun and realizes he could have called for help long ago. When Jack is unable to convince him to allow the expedition to continue, he paralyzes him using the spider. As Jack joins the others at the raft, Sam discovers a paralyzed Gordon and notices the spider bite on his arm. While Sam was interrogating Jack about what he had done to Gordon, an Anaconda drops down from the rafters and swallows Gordon alive soon after she leaves the building. The others arrive just as it finishes, so Bill sets the hut on fire. Jack uses the commotion to steal the raft. With no more material to make another raft, they decide to bushwhack through the jungle to beat Jack to the orchids and get back their raft. On the way they fall into a cave trying to escape an Anaconda. Cole gets lost and panics after finding a skeleton. He runs into Tran and they decide to stay together, only to be separated again when Tran falls into a crevice of water where he is killed by the snake. Cole manages to make his way back to the team, escaping the cave behind them seconds ahead of the snake. It follows them through the hole, and attacks them. Sam uses a machete to behead the snake, but Cole is captured by another Anaconda.

The team follows and find him being constricted, but still alive. Bill throws his knife and impales the snake through the head, killing it and freeing Cole. The group finds the raft just as Jack finds the blood orchids, hanging precariously above a pit in which a ball of male Anacondas are mating with the female. Jack shoots Bill in the arm, and forces the party to accompany him to the orchids. He has Samantha cross the pit via a thin log to fill a backpack with orchids. As she makes her way back, the log starts to crack. Jack orders her to throw him the backpack, but Samantha counters to threaten to drop the flowers into the pit unless he drops the gun. However, Jack fires at Gail, again forcing Sam to throw the backpack to Jack, and she did this time. Suddenly, the log breaks and she falls, landing halfway down the pit. As the others help her climb out, Jack tries to get the backpack. The spider he used to paralyze Gordon escapes its jar and bites him. Bill extends his hands to Jack but Jack becomes paralyzed and falls into the pit along with Sam. Jack is devoured as the others help Sam escape. The female Anaconda notices them and attempts to kill them, but Gail tricks it into biting their fuel container. Bill tries to shoot the container, but the gun is empty. Cole shoots it with a flare gun, causing a chain reaction that kills the snakes, along with all the Blood Orchids as well.

The film ends with Bill, Sam, Cole, Gail and Bill's pet-monkey Kong, who make it back to the raft alive and leaving (without the risk of taking another shortcut).

Cast

Development

Producer Verna Harrah says that she always wanted expand on the first Anaconda, on which she also served as producer. The deciding factor was the ability to tell a new story. “Originally we developed an idea about anacondas coming into the waterways of New Orleans off a boat from the Amazon. It was fun but the idea became too complicated. So we stayed with the jungle environment, but now it’s a story of pharmacologists who have discovered that there might be an orchid in Borneo that could prolong life.” To kick off this new adventure, a group of driven New York scientists get funding from their company to travel to Borneo in search of a rare flower that blooms only two weeks every seven years. “Of course they end up running into a lot of trouble because not only is it monsoon season when they arrive, it’s also mating season for the anacondas,” says Harrah.

Director Dwight Little was attracted to the project because he’s a big fan of adventure stories, especially when the exotic and the thrilling elements intertwine. “You really can’t beat a good adventure movie and that’s what this is,” says Little. “Even without the monster or snake element, it’s still a really good story about an expedition that travels up a treacherous river in a very dangerous area. Then you add the snakes and it becomes something else again!”

Harrah was thrilled to get Little on board. “He had a real vision for this film,” she says. “Here is a man who is calm, talented and collaborative, and how wonderful is that?”

Crucial to a horror story, in which more than ninety percent of the movie takes place outdoors, is picking the perfect shooting location. The filmmakers were thrilled to find their jungle in the picturesque nation of Fiji, and the benefits were both creative and financial. “Fiji offers various fabulous, incredible locations that haven’t been seen on film before. They look spectacular,” explains Harrah. “But we also received some great tax incentives and that was certainly very important.” In addition, the government was extremely accommodating to a group of foreign workers. Says Harrah, “It’s also very safe in Fiji. This is one of the few places where you can work in a jungle environment and not have to worry about terrorism or local warfare.”[1]

Casting the film

Director Dwight Little knew early on that the key to the success of ANACONDAS would lie in careful casting. “I really do believe that with any thriller or horror movie, first and foremost the audience needs to invest in the characters and identify with them,” explains Little. “Then you can begin to build the suspense. If the audience doesn’t invest in the characters, then there’s no suspense, no scares.” Each cast member was selected for his or her talent and for what could be brought to the role. Eventually, a roster of fresh and energetic actors was assembled, with everyone prepared for the challenges of expressing character in a physically demanding film. Says Harrah, “They are all very talented and look wonderful on film. There’s a real personality that shines through individually and as an ensemble. We were incredibly fortunate to find such an amazing cast.”

Johnny Messner plays Bill Johnson, a rugged loner who lives in the jungle on his boat. For a hefty fee, he agrees to take the scientists down river even though the situation is fraught with peril. “Bill’s a mess,” admits Messner. “He’s ended up in Borneo to begin a new life but can’t escape his demons. He’s kind of a drunk, he’s a gambler and he’s in debt. All he owns in life is his beaten-up old boat. He’s an interesting character though, because he’s not all bad. Underneath he’s got a pretty good heart – he’s just made some bad decisions in life.” Little credits Messner with making a tough role – an American exiled from his own country – not a cliché. “He’s so grounded as an actor that he kept the movie in a real place and not in a ‘movie movie’ place,” says Little.

Bill’s vulnerable side is shown through his affections for the pet monkey that lives with him on his boat. For Messner, the way a person is treated by an animal can be a great indication of character. “Kong is the only thing that Bill cares about and in turn the monkey really cares about him,” says Messner. “So that adds an interesting dimension to the character.” Working with Kong proved to be a rewarding incredible experience for the actor: “I just loved that monkey. She would climb up on my shoulder and kiss my ear, and she was just so smart. She’s a real crowd pleaser, and she brings some great moments to the movie.” Morris Chestnut plays Gordon Mitchell, the research team’s financial guy, and a man with a constant eye on the potential wealth in the expedition. Says Morris: “Mitchell is in conflict throughout the entire movie. Although he wants to get the hell out of there and go home, he knows if they can find the orchid, his company is going to make a lot of money. He’s the kind of guy who likes his nice suits and his shiny shoes, so when he has to chop his way a few miles through the jungle, knowing that he could end up as a meal for some type of reptile – well, he’s not a happy camper at all! It was a really fun role and I had a great time in Fiji – it’s an amazing place.”

Little found Chestnut’s charisma an invaluable part of the ensemble. “Morris really does grace the screen with a tremendous presence – he has a real star quality about him,” says the director. “When his character steps into a conference room at the beginning and says this is what he’s going to do, you really do believe him.”

British actor Matthew Marsden was chosen to be Dr. Jack Byron, the lead scientist on the team. Says Marsden, “Jack is a very good scientist – an expert in his field – but he’s the star of his own movie in his head. He’s not necessarily an egotist. He’s under a lot of pressure to find this rare orchid and get the results for his company. That makes him not exactly a bad character but certainly very driven. In the past I’ve always played the hero so this was a nice departure for me – I thought both the script and the character were really very interesting.”

After an arduous casting process to find an actor who didn’t play Jack as a straight-out-of-the-box bad guy, Marsden was a breath of fresh air. “Matthew was a wonderful surprise,” says Harrah. “We were getting nervous because Dwight and I were already in Fiji and we couldn’t find the right person for the role. But Matthew brought something very sensitive to the character and gave him a lot of depth that wasn’t necessarily on the page.”

To play Gail Stern, another scientist in the expedition, the filmmakers cast Salli Richardson-Whitfield. “Gail is the head scientist at the company that’s representing the expedition, so she’s basically there to make sure that if they find anything, her company will benefit,” she explains. “Even though, as a scientist, she thinks their claims are ridiculous and that the whole expedition is a waste of time and money. Right from the beginning, you see that she’s not buying into it at all. She’s very much from a corporate world in New York and surrounds herself with comfort. So the whole idea of roughing it in Borneo is just not her thing. It was really fun to play a character like that, who’s screaming throughout the film – screaming at anything that moves!” Richardson-Whitfield says that her favorite movies have always been those that are truly scary, so getting the chance to act in one was an opportunity she wasn’t about to pass up. She adds, “It’s a great script and if you like to be scared, then this is going to be the film for you!”

KaDee Strickland was cast as Sam Rogers, a member of the research team who is Jack Byron’s assistant. Strickland sees Sam as representing the heart of the film. “Sam is there on the team because Jack has worked with her before and trusts her. She is motivated by the love of her work and by being part of a scientific expedition, but she struggles a great deal with whom on this team is being honest and who is trying to manipulate the situation for their own gain.”

Little applauds Strickland’s ability to handle the balance in a role that requires smarts and athleticism. “She’s very physical, very earthy yet at the same time pulls off the New York debutante graduate student heart of her character,” says Little. “With the machete in one environment and the laptop in the other, she’s amazing.”

Strickland says that she grew up loving horror movies. “This is the first horror movie I’ve been involved with, and I was also really pleased to have the opportunity to spend three months in Fiji, which I loved,” she says. “What made it most enjoyable was that the cast got along so well together! We really did become great friends. When you ask people to be in a constant state of fear, which is essentially what we had to do, it can be very draining. Yet at the end of the day we always had dinner together, even though we’d been together all day long.”

Eugene Byrd plays Cole Burris, the technical expert – or “computer geek,” as he jokes – on the team. Says Eugene: “He’s the guy who likes to keep everything light. He wants to get the job done but he likes to make a few jokes and have some fun. That is until he sees his friend being eaten by some ridiculously huge snake. Then he just wants to get the hell out of there and get home.”

Byrd was given the freedom to ad-lib funny lines, which Harrah says makes him a crucial component to a movie with a mission to scare. “Eugene is our comic relief. He’s just delightful. He understood his character so well and his lines were always perfect and very funny – even when he improvised. He really is the relief in the movie and you need that in a horror film.”

Nicholas Gonzalez says his thrill-seeking character, Dr. Ben Douglas, isn’t put off by circumstances that would frighten off most people. “Ben’s the kind of character who’s along for the ride,” says Gonzalez. “They have to take a doctor and Ben is a friend of Jack Byron’s, so he’s it! He’s used to adventure so he’s not really put off by the hardships of the expedition, and when he sees the ladies, he knows he’s going to have a good time. He approaches everything with fun and good humor!”

Gonzalez also took time to enjoy his down time while in Fiji. “We did some deep sea fishing and caught enough fish to feed the cast and crew for a week!”

To play Tran, one of the locals who is a friend of Bill’s, the filmmakers cast newcomer Karl Yune. “Bill and Tran are partners because Bill relies on Tran,” explains Yune. “Tran knows the ins and outs of the town and if you need something done, you go to Tran. Both Bill and Tran live life on the edge and they’re both a little crazy. Tran doesn’t care about the scientists – all he cares about is the fact that they’re offering $50,000 to charter a boat. That’s big money, even if it is the flood season.”

Yune says he was very pleased to have the opportunity to work with director Dwight Little. “Dwight is the most laid back director you’ll ever meet. He’s a true actor’s director and he had an incredibly strong vision of the film that he wanted to make. He had a lot of actors to deal with but he made time for all of us whenever we needed it. He really listened to our ideas and was always happy to compromise. He was great and I think that I was very fortunate to work with him at this point in my career.”[2]

Unleashing the snakes

On the first Anaconda, animatronics were the name of the game. But with the major strides in computer-generated creatures since then, the new movie could make great use of CGI to bring these massive reptiles to pulsating life. Says producer Harrah, “In terms of advancement of CGI capabilities, it’s a different world today than it was when we made the first film seven years ago. The action with these snakes is just so much better than anything they could have done back then. It’s quite spectacular what our visual effects people have been able to do.”

Director Little says that the snake development process was very complicated. It started with some concepts sketched out by an artist. “We looked at anacondas, but we also looked at pythons and rattle snakes and all kinds of other snakes to see which eyes, which teeth, which palate, which scale, which tones interested us. We certainly didn’t want it to look like some sea monster – I wanted it to look as real as possible – but I wanted it to look a little bit smarter than an actual anaconda head appears, and a little bit more awake and alive. So we took a few subtle licenses that make it seem more like a thinking creature.”

But audiences won’t only be seeing the work of effects when it comes to the movie’s title predator. Says Little, “At the same time I also shot a massive amount of film of real anacondas, and all that material will also be in the movie. I don’t believe you will be able to tell the difference between the real snakes and the CGI snake.”

Little was very clear with visual effects supervisor Dale Duguid about what he wanted – a creature that was nature-based, not surreal. Says Duguid, “Certainly the perfect CGI snake is one that you can’t differentiate from reality. And that’s quite a challenge! A forty-foot snake has hundred of ribs and muscles and organs that you can see moving through its zillions of individually sized scales. Those scales move differently, depending on which way the body is flexing and into what shape. Everything is very dynamic on a snake. So it was a very complex animal to emulate. We used a combination of technologies – certainly there’s a heavy reliance on CGI but we also do have a prosthetic component. Although, CGI is the only way you could depict the speed and violence of such a massive animal.”

Little and Duguid discussed whether the snake would have a personality, but Little was adamant that it should not. “It’s a machine, with a tiny brain that says, basically, ‘What’s for lunch?’” explains Duguid. “Because it doesn’t have any human traits like malice, jealousy or rage, it’s even more scary. It simply appears on the scene and decides who to eat first. I’ve never stumbled across a forty foot anaconda in the dark, but I’m sure if I did, I’d be terrified out of my wits. All we then had to do was to introduce the animal into the context of the actors’ performances and immediately, it’s scary just by association.”

With all the work that went into the creation of a terrifying snake, director Dwight Little knew it was important to tease the audience with anticipation of the snake. To that end, moviegoers won’t get a good look at it until well into the film: “By which time”, says Little, “we’ve built a pretty good foundation on which to scare the wits out of the audience!”[3]

The look of the film

Everybody was in agreement that for the movie to be as effective as possible, the visual element was crucial. Director Dwight Little worked closely with production designer Bryce Perrin and director of photography Stephen F. Windon to sift through ideas for how the movie should look. Says Little, “Certainly I wanted it to be moody and atmospheric. I was inspired by certain articles and photographs in National Geographic that depict the life of some of the indigenous people in the Brazilian rain forest, people who are almost untouched by the western world. There’s a kind of mist in the jungle, a softness of the light and a smokiness from all the fires they burn. I felt very passionate about those photographs – they were my inspiration and that’s the look I wanted to create.”

The next source of inspiration was Fiji itself. As Harrah explains, “We really liked the idea that we would be in Fiji when it was cooler and that we’d have some rain – we wanted that darker, more mysterious look. We start out very bright and sunny and then go into a much darker, gloomier look as the film progresses and the characters become more and more scared. It gets darker and darker as we get into the cave and then the sinkhole – shooting in the dark and in the rain made it feel even more frightening.”

The biggest challenge for the design team was building Bill’s boat, The Bloody Mary – a marvel of seafaring dilapidation. Production designer Bryce Perrin had never designed a boat before but rose to the challenge. “This one had to look like it was very old and falling apart, but still be safe enough to film on and to withstand going into the water,” says Perrin. “We had to put trusses inside the boat so we could cradle it in different places.”

Little calls the boat an engineering feat. “The rivers are very shallow in Fiji so the boat had to be designed around that. It was remarkable that we were able to get such a sizeable boat into all our locations – we would never have achieved that with a real boat.”

Perrin says that the Bloody Mary was inspired by the African Queen, from the famous Humphrey Bogart/Katharine Hepburn film. “There’s a little bit of the romance of an old jungle cruise boat, and yet it’s also a very practical salvage vessel because Bill runs contraband up and down the river. The boat is all patched together out of old tires, plastic and iron and whatever else he has salvaged.”

Filming on water is never easy, and Little thankfully knew that, having previously made the killer whale sequel Free Willy 2. The preparation is akin to getting ready for a sea battle, explains Little. “Basically you have to bring everything out on the river on huge barges and pontoons, from the lights and cameras to all the support gear. You end up looking like a small armada! You lead with the picture boat with the Bloody Mary behind, tailing up to thirty other boats, each carrying a different department. It’s a very complex operation. We filmed on the Navua River in Fiji and the Fijian river captains and boat people were a tremendous asset.”

One of the most harrowing scenes involves The Bloody Mary going over a waterfall, spilling its occupants into the rapids. Bravely, the entire cast agreed to work in the rapids to add an authenticity that would not have been possible using stunt players. Says Johnny Messner, who plays the boat’s owner Bill: “It was a very intense day. It was exhausting trying to fight those currents but it was fun at the same time. We all lined up and linked arms – you really had to rely on the person next to you or you were going to go under. There were cameras in the water and we were rushing right at them. But it’s great footage.”

Says director Little, “We created quite a lot of whitewater and the actors had to swim through a pretty heavy current to get to the shore. But they all got right into it. It never looks the same with stunt people so we were pretty delighted that they were all willing to do it.”

The production also utilized a massive tent brought in from Australia to serve as a sound stage. “The tent was terrific,” says production designer Perrin. “A ready-made studio. Fiji doesn’t have any sound stages so we really needed something like that.” Some of the interiors of the Bloody Mary were built in the tent, as well as the cave and sinkhole set.

In all, ANACONDAS: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid was a challenging film to bring to life. Executive producer Jacobus Rose sums up the obstacle, “We had to build our own roads to get into locations or climb over mountains. It rained a lot of the time, and we were shooting at night, in the jungle. It was very hot and humid with mosquitoes everywhere. Yet both the cast and crew were amazing. Everyone kept a smile on their face and did the best work they could possibly do. We couldn’t have asked for more.”

As a result, says Little, “We have a great adventure movie that’s scary as hell!”[4]

Box office

The film debuted second in the box office for the week, grossing $12,812,287.[5] It averaged $4,410 at 2,905 sites, and earned a total domestic gross ticket sales of $32,238,923.[6] Worldwide, the film grossed $70,992,898, behind its predecessor's $136 million worldwide.[7]

Reception

The film received negative reviews from critics. The review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes reported that the film received 26% positive reviews, based on 117 reviews.[8][9][10] Metacritic reported the film had an average score of 40 out of 100, based on 28 reviews.[11] The film was mainly criticized for the film's heavy use of "unrealistic" CGI, but the fact that Anacondas are not native to Borneo was not much appreciated by reviewers either.[12] Roger Ebert awarded the film two out of four stars, a rating less than that he gave the original film. Ebert however praised the acting of Matthew Marsden as being "suitably treacherous".[13]

Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Remake or Sequel, but lost the trophy to Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.

Trivia

  • In the film, Cole Burris makes a quick reference to the original Anaconda-film shortly following the snake attack on Ben.
