Snake Eater is a 1989 action adventure film directed by George Erschbamer. This is the first in a series of three action films that feature Jack Kelly (Lorenzo Lamas), as an ex-Marine who served in a special forces unit known as the Snake Eaters. Jack is now a good guy on the police force but turns into a rogue cop when a band of criminals brutally kills his parents and kidnap his little sister, Sissy (Sandra Brown). His family was enjoying a relaxing stay on a houseboat when they were attacked by the backwoods killers. Sissy is being held hostage and tortured by the gang and Jack has to find her before they kill her too. It is up to Jack to trust his instincts and put his prior knowledge of combat to good use to find the criminals, free his terrified sister, and put an end to the gang's criminal activities.
