Anaconda (1997) (part 4 of 5)

Some time later, Denise is still weeping while Sarone performs a half-hearted funeral ceremony for Gary that involves tossing some leaves into the water. Kari Wuhrer gets her Oscar® Clip Moment here, going off on Sarone about luring the snake to them. “You brought the devil!” Sarone, seemingly figuring there’s no point in pretending not to be insane anymore, responds, “There’s a devil inside everyone!” and pops his eyes out at her.

He then tells Westridge to take his bags up to his room, and Westridge responds, “How dare you presume to order me about?” See, Westridge did the very same thing to Denise at the beginning of the movie. See? See? Sarone thankfully responds by slapping Westridge around and then Griffinizing him for a while, before finally sticking a gun right in his face. Sarone then moves on to intimidating Danny, who yields as well. So, it seems Sarone is now completely in charge. Who could have seen this coming? The camera moves below the water, where the anaconda swims by. Gary is now fully inside of it, and we can ludicrously see the outline of his face through its skin [!!!].
