Boa vs. Python is an American horror film released in 2004 .

The script was written by Chase Parker and Sam Wells . The film was produced by Jeffery Beach .


An overzealous businessman named Broddick wants to ship a 30 meter long green python to the United States . He organizes hunting games in which exotic animals are shot for rich customers. But the transport fails and the python breaks out. The snake leaves a bloody trail on its escape and calls the FBI on the scene. They try to hunt and kill the reptile using a huge boa constrictor .

Meanwhile, hobby hunters are also looking for the giant snake. A showdown takes place in a water treatment plant . The fight between the two giant snakes extends to a train station, where the boa is electrocuted and the python is caught and killed by a passing train.


Boa vs. Python is a crossover of the horror films New Alcatraz and Python - Death comes silently . The shooting took place in Sofia .


“In his directorial debut, David Flores lets two giant snakes compete against each other. The film is quite complex and well staged for a TV production. Of course, the plot is not related to reality but just for fun, so the film comes across as a high-quality trash film. The snakes are of course completely computer-animated, but they are quite successful for a monster snake film, so that the film offers good entertainment on a low level. "
