Movie Info

Join Special Agent Finch and Professor Sarah Monroe as a mutant strain of giant ferocious piranha escape from the Amazon and eat their way toward Florida. Will the entire population of Florida be saved from complete annihilation? Featuring explosive set pieces, stunning special effects and the most fearsome marine monsters in the history of film, "Mega Piranha" is the riotously entertaining new creature feature from the makers of last year's massive DVD success, "Mega Shark Vs Giant Octopus." Prepare for the ultimate bite-sized blockbusting thrill-ride that will leave you desperately hanging onto the edge of your seat.

  • An absolute stinker in every conceivable way.

  • I can't think of anything more dispiriting than a film consciously faking it for the so-bad-it's-good market.

  • Bad-movie enthusiasts will doubtless have fun watching these oversized piscine predators leaping from the ocean and laying waste to Florida's coastal regions, but hasn't this tiresome, kitschy, so-bad-it's-good fad run its course?

  • We can ridicule every frame.

  • Incredibly for a film which presumably intends to at least alarm an audience, the budget seems to have been spent entirely on set-piece explosions with no money remaining for the actual fish.

  • It stars former pop queen Tiffany, who topped the charts in 1987 with I Think We're Alone Now. Visit a cinema showing this and the chances are you'll know what she was singing about.

Audience Reviews for Mega Piranha

They're eating boats and alligator bodies, dammit!

When genetic experiments get out of hand, piranhas turn into giant, flying, cannibalistic hermpahrodites that explode when they contact building materials. This is a real self-esteem movie: no matter how stupid you are in real life, you'll be convinced you're a genius compared to the people who made MEGA PIRANHA.

Tiffany and Barry Williams fight Man eating fish that are growing exponentially. Not as exciting as you'd hope.

Scientists genetically modify piranhas. They start killing. People doubt it's the piranhas. They find out it is, the hard way. The is SciFi (or SyFy now) killer animal stuff. The growing piranhas and bad CGI gave me a few smiles, and the awful dialogue was memorable. But since The Asylum have already done Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, you kind of wish this Mega Piranha had a sea-folk to battle. Maybe, Mental Mermaid? Tiffany isn't much of an actress, in fact I don't think she was much of a singer. Paul Logan offers the muscles, and when he goes man-on-fish with a piranha in a knife fight, you believe he could win. In the expanding world of killer animal movies, this is one you can easily skip. I'm gonna wait for Piranha 3D.
