‘Prepare for the hiss of death’
Giant Python is a 2021 fantasy monster movie about a magic tree, a mega snake and a forbidden island where intruders are eaten alive. The US title is Python Island
In a village where snake-catching is the livelihood of most of the local populace, a magical tree grew. Because of the tree’s benevolence, it saved one small snake from the villagers and named it “Little Flower”.
Many years later, Xiaoshu has become a biological researcher, exploring the secrets of genes. Unfortunately, his colleagues with ulterior motives use the power of the magical tree to break into a forbidden area by the snake-catching village: the island where intruders are eaten alive. The island is filled with moisture, quietness and weirdness, and it seems there are eyes everywhere; staring at every move made by intruders…
There are good ideas in this one and some good acting (albeit dubbed into English), so it’s not a waste […] A silly film that can be fun when it isn’t melodramatic. It’s a decent time-waster, especially since it still isn’t even 90 minutes.” Mondo Bizarro
In the US, ITN released the movie on DVD on October 4, 2022, as Python Island.
