Audience Reviews for Killer Fish

VERY HARD TO ACQUIRE . . . hopefully some DVD company will release this commercially so everyone can snatch it up without having to find it in ESPANOL from one source and having to track down English subtitles as an .srt file from another source. I LOVE Italian "SCHLUNKERS" and silly movies of the like and love this . . . KAREN BLACK is pretty sexy in this one. The music is great, GARY COLLINS, LEE MAJORS from SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN, and JAMES FRANSCICUS are terrific. the beautiful MARGEAUX HEMINGWAY--twenty-years prior to her swallowing a lethal dose of sleeping pills and orange soda--is pretty and funny in this. THE PRIAHNA eat EVERYTHING and even cause a guy's intestins to flop-out in the water. It also stars JOE PESCI'S younger brother FRANK PESCI. GOOD movie with good music and witty dialog. You know, in 1981 HOME BOX OFFICE aired KILLER FISH as a FRIDAY NIGHT 8:00 MOVIE!!! I can't imagine HBO (HOME BOX OFFICE) ever wanting to touch this again. well I LOVE it and would want to watch it again in the future so its 100%. (slowly but surely I'm developing a criteria for reasons why I give movies 100%)
