This is an outstanding but complicated movie about an orchid poacher, a woman writing a book about the poacher who falls in love with him, and a screenwriter (Nicholas Cage) who is hired to write a screenplay about the book the writer has written about the poacher, but he can't figure out how to write it. Then the screenwriter's idiot twin brother comes to visit and takes a class in screenwriting for which he writes a cliche action movie script which somehow turns this movie into a violent swamp chase action movie - with snakes, of course. Movie swamps are always full of snakes. Nick Cage deserved his Oscar nomination for playing both the screenwriter and his twin brother.

At the end of the movie, Cage and his brother are being chased through a Florida swamp at night by the author, played by a pistol-packing Meryl Streep, and the orchid poacher, played by Chris Cooper. (Cooper won an Oscar for his performance in this movie.) We see a snake on a branch. The two Cages hide behind a large log. Then they find another snake on the log which startles them, but only for a second. The snake is just a quick jump scare for the audience to make it seem like they are in even more danger. If you blink you'll miss it, but the movie is so good, I just had to include it on this list.
