MUMBAI: HBO will air Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid on 29 June 2007 at 9 pm.
The film features Johnny Messner, KaDee Strickland, Matthew Marsden and Eugene Byrd.
The film is about a scientific expedition that sets out for the island of Borneo. The expedition is in search of a flower named the Blood Orchid. Reports say that this flower can lead to a longer life. But what they find inhabiting the rainforest of Borneo are a group of anacondas. But they aren’t ordinary – the Blood Orchid made the anacondas longer, faster, and smarter. Now the scientists must find a way out of the rainforest by outsmarting, outrunning and outliving the anacondas.
Led by a steely soldier of fortune, the explorers fight off poisonous insects, ferocious crocodiles and savage head-hunters only to discover that something far stronger and deadlier has been meticulously stalking them in order to protect its nesting ground.
Incidentally, Anacondas is the first Hollywood movie to have its premiere in Fiji.
