The film series started with the movie Anaconda, which was released back in 1997. 4 sequels were made after the tremendous success of Anaconda. But, the franchise has not released any sequel for some years now. Here’s what we know about the movie series.
The Anaconda series
Each part of the movie follows Anacondas, which are giant man-eating creatures. In each installment, various groups of people try to capture or kill the creatures. Also, almost all the sequels have references to the fictional plant called The Blood Orchid.
In addition, there are also repeated references to Wexel Hall Pharmaceuticals and the fictitious Murdoch family.
Luis Llosa directed the first part, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment had the rights of distribution of the same.
After the first movie “Anaconda” released, a sequel called “Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid” came out in 2004. Then, in 2008, “Anaconda 3: Offspring released”. Then, the series progressed with “Anacondas: Trail of Blood” (2009) and “Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda” (2015).
