Directed by Joe Dante
While searching for missing teenagers, novice skip tracer Maggie McKeown and local town boozer Paul Grogan stumble upon a top-secret Army laboratory conducting genetic research on piranha fish for the purpose of developing biological warfare. When the deadly eating machines are accidently released from the compound, they're soon headed downstream and consuming everything, and anything, in their path.
Two people unwittingly unleash a school of deadly genetically modified piranha in Joe Dante's killer fish fav.
Cast: Bradford Dillman, Heather Menzies-Urich, Kevin McCarthy
classic B movie in its finest!
'70s creature flic that scratches the itch for a classic. How would you describe the piranha kill sound?
LOL fun watch!
Built off of the misconception a lot of people have about piranhas, the fish in this movie don't look real but it definitely put me on edge a little whenever someone would be in the water, especially as we approached the last twenty minutes and all those kids jumped into the lake. What you see is what you get so if killer fish sounds silly to you, I'd look elsewhere for some good ol' B-movie chills.
