The Main monster from the 2009 movie, Hydra: The Lost Island.


Background

The Hydra lives on an uncharted deserted island. When four archaeologists find the island, they decided to check it out. There, the Hydra kills and eats three of them while the last one runs off, but is trapped on the island when the ship that they had used sunk. When a rich man uses the island for a manhunt, the Hydra devours his porters and his customers when they land on the island. The people who were being hunted manage to find the archaeologist. She tells them that the only way to kill the Hydra for good is by using the magic sword of Hercules to cut off it's heads completely. While one of them gets the sword, the archaeologist sacrifices herself to give them time. When the characters manage to get the sword, one of them cuts off all the heads. However, the last head didn't get cut off completely and it heals. It gets on the ship that they were on and devours the rich man and his wife as just a one-headed Hydra. The remaining characters manage to cut the last head completely off, causing the body to disintegrate and carry the sword of Hercules away, killing it for good.
