Anaconda (1997) (part 5 of 5)
Terri and Danny come to a big, dilapidated house and stop there, hoping to find some fuel. How fortunate this place happened to be here, as it seems like the perfect location for some kind of final showdown. They step off the boat and Danny stumbles a little, but then says, “I’m cool.” And that’s how they cover his leg wound, which in the real world would most likely be gangrenous by now. They pass an axe and a busted rifle on the dock, and both say they don’t want to know what happened here. Hmm, could it maybe have been an anaconda? Then there’s another long shot of the river, and this time the tilting camera goes nuts, doing a complete barrel roll [!].
Inside, they observe the devastation, lending further support to the idea that this is a nice final showdown spot. They come across some drums of fuel in the back, and Terri finds a snakeskin near them. The revelation of this is a little awkward, with Danny feeling the need to explain to Terri what it is after she picks it up. They start to get the fuel out, and just when you most expect it, Sarone sneaks up behind them and somehow knocks both of them out with just one whack from the butt of his rifle.
