For anyone who felt that the problem with Jaws was the whole shark thing, this is definitely a step in the right direction: a 40 foot killer snake picking off a documentary crew as they make their way through the Amazon rainforest. There is an all-star cast to contend with the eponymous CGI villain (J-Lo, Ice Cube, Eric Stoltz, Owen Wilson), but for connoisseurs of bad acting Anaconda will always be prized for the scenery chewing antics of a bugged out Jon Voight, a stand out turn for all the wrong reasons.
Copresented with Northwest Comedy, this screening will be shown in Hecklevision: allowing you, the audience, to text your running commentary, barbs, put downs and snark up there on the screen.

How does it work?
Best if you download the free iOS MuVChat texting app from your iPhone’s App Store. If you don’t have an iPhone, you can simply send standard text messages.
When you arrive at Anaconda, you’ll be given a screening-specific access code to enter into the app or text to MuVChat. Once you receive a confirmation, your heckles appear on the big-screen for the duration of the event.
"Anaconda, directed by Luis Llosa with all of the subtlety of a snake-oil salesman, is in the great tradition of cinematic cheese, as processed as Kraft Singles slices." Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"Great "B" movie trash, complete with bad special effects and cheesy monsters." Jeffrey Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
