Movie Info

Roger Corman's 1978 original is re-made in this made-for-television movie. When some secretly mutated piranhas are accidentally released, it becomes a race against time to stop them before they wipe out local vacationers. William Katt and Alexandria Paul star as the unlikely duo who team up to stop the deadly flesh-eating fish as they head for a summer camp site on a resort lake.

Audience Reviews for Piranha


Not terrible... but the overall cheapness (even for a Roger Corman flick, this redo makes the original look grandiose) and its over-reliance on stock footage from the 70s version (because of said cheapness) hurts it. They certainly tried their darnedest to match the lifted special effects shots with their contemporary footage, but they never quite cut together correctly.

CLASSIC Corman. Hilarious low budget fun. Mila Kunis pre-puberty: her eyes are the same size they are today. Yikes!

Not as good as the original, but the nudity is better.
