Laughably bad horror movie has documentarian lead a crew through the Amazon only to have her trip interrupted by a giant river snake that eats her employees whole. Bad dialogue, embarrassing visual effects and weak (to say the least) performances abound everywhere, not to mention the fact that Lopez never convinces you for a millisecond that she’s actually a filmmaker (though she does point a camera in the air a few times).
