Where to Watch: &Priv HD

The Norwegian horror movie Ragnarok functions as a double-edged sword as both a clone to the 1997 horror masterpiece, Anaconda, and an unofficial Anaconda sequel. If you loved the first Anaconda like I did and haven’t seen most of it uncountable sequels, then chances are you may not dig Ragnarok.

However, if you watch this expecting something as amazing as the 1997 movie, then you’re going to be left disappointed.
