*** Its worth noting that their have actually been reports and claims of giant anacondas going back to the colonial times, which is what the film is probably based on. These giant anacondas are classed as [[Our Cryptids are More Mysterious cryptids]] and are thought to ether be oversized green anacondas or a new species entirely.

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:The team leader is knocked unconscious by a poisonous wasp near the beginning of the film and remains in bed for much of the remainder. He eventually reappears to fight off Paul Sarone, who was about to kill the others for costing him to the Anaconda's prize by killing it.]]

* BigBadEnsemble: The Anaconda would be the most logical choice as the main villain and kills the most people, but Sarone manipulated everyone to capture the snake and murdered a fair number of people for profit himself.

Also, the snake is just an animal acting according to it's nature (or at least nature as it exists in the film), and is not truly evil.

* JustDesserts: Paul Sarone gets eaten by the same Anaconda that he was hunting for most of the movie, and to make it even more karmic this is right after a failed attempt to feed two of the heroes to the giant snake.

''Anaconda'' is a 1997 monster movie with an AllStarCast ranging from Owen Wilson to Creator/JonVoight to Music/JenniferLopez to Music/IceCube on the hunt (in their own various ways) for the eponymous giant snake. Largely notable for Jon Voight as Paul Sarone, [[LargeHam chewing up scenery]] with a far greater appetite than any serpent could muster.

* MaleGaze: Sarone's, er, lustful?, glances at Terri will freeze your blood. He's ''that creepy''.

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: The Anaconda's killing method is downright horrific and Sarone's HannibalLecture doesn't ease matters; ReptilesAreAbhorrent is certainly at play here. Dying at its hands according to one expert involves being constricted by the snake's coils so hard that eventually your bones break and your veins burst. That's if you're lucky. You might also survive, only to be EatenAlive afterwards, to be slowly digested or spit out again.

The latter two movies were direct-to-video, and all three sequels are considered worse than the original. A fourth sequel (''Film/LakePlacidVsAnaconda''), a crossover with ''LakePlacid'', was released in 2015.

** Anacondas don't grow that damn big.

to:

** Anacondas don't get huge, but they can't live out of water. Water provides the buoyancy to ''allow'' them to grow massive (and never to the size of the snakes in the film, but the entire point is that damn big. these are special species that ''do''. Problem is, they'd die if they tried to be arboreal.)
