Movie Summary

Dwight Little
Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid is a 2004 horror film from director Dwight H. Little and is a sequel to the 1997 film Anaconda. Set in Borneo, the film follows a group of scientists as they travel deep into the jungle in search of the blood orchid, an extremely rare plant. The blood orchid is believed to have the power to extend human life, a fountain of youth, and may even hold the key to curing cancer. The expedition's guide, Bill Johnson (Johnny Messner), tries to warn the team about the dangers they face, but clashes with team leader Dr. Jack Byron (Matthew Marsden). When Byron orders Johnson to take the team off-course, his rash decision leads to a fatality for the team when an impossibly enormous anaconda crosses their path. Faced with a decision to press on or turn back, they decide to continue their quest for the prized blood orchid. Battling mutant anaconda at every turn, it isn't long before the surviving team members discover the true secret of the blood orchid. Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid also stars Morris Chestnut, KaDee Strickland, Nicholas Gonzalez, and Salli Richardson-Whitfield.moreless
