Hydra (2009)
Hydra: The Lost Island
Tremor 5

Nomination Year: 2015
SYNOPSIS:  A budding entrepreneur takes four billionaires to a deserted Mediterranean island for the hunting trip of a lifetime. But these are no ordinary billionaires -- each had a loved one killed in a violent crime. And the game they'll be facing is no ordinary human hunt prey -- each is a murderer who committed a crime similar to the one that killed one of the billionaires' loved ones.

There's only one catch -- the captain of the boat chartered to take them to the island is actually an ex-Navy SEAL. And he's substituted one of the regular murderers with Folger's crystals one of his former men who had the misfortune to witness him committing war crimes. Naturally, the captain hasn't bothered to inform either the hunt organizer or any of the billionaires of this. But surely a bunch of heavily armed incompetent rich guys can handle one Navy SEAL.

Oh, and there's also the fact that the island is home to a hydra that's immune to bullets, eats human flesh, and can only be killed by the legendary Sword of Hercules, which can only be found in Lou Ferrigno's closet a ruined temple, which also happens to be conveniently located on the island. So, two catches.

Okay, yeah, there's also the volcano which could erupt at any minute and cause the island to sink back into the sea at any moment. So, fine, three catches. But, come on, really, what could go wrong?

So, basically, just your typical human hunt, giant lizard, natural disaster movie.

"Wanna Run That By Me Again?"

Hydra: "We'lldraw straws. Longest takes the east, shortest the west, and so forth."What does 'and so forth' mean in this context?
