Remake of the classic film tale of nature biting back, which earned over $10 million. When flesh eating piranhas are accidentally released into a summer resort's rivers, the guests become their next meal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Who Knew This Thing Existed???? June 8, 2009
When I ordered "Piranha", I was expecting the B-Movie masterpiece by Joe Dante about killer fish invading a river which is also home to a childrens summer camp. What I got was this 1995 remake? I know there is a remake due out next year (in 3D to boot!) but had no idea this thing was sitting out there. Apparently this lousy little update produced by Roger Corman is a Showtime original movie. I remember the original had it's fair share of laughs, often times playing like a backwater homage to "Jaws", but while the original was a rip-off at least it was entertaining, this one tried to duplicate the horror/comdey formula..and fails.
Right off the bat, Corman goes for the gratuitous nudity, and things begin going downhill fast. Two kids on the make accidentally stumble into a secret research project while going skinny dipping in a piraha infested pool. Soon, the swarm of biters are making their way downstream to a populated area. There are tons of underwater shots of bubbles and and the water turns red, and that is about it as far as the gore content. There really isn't anything here that is inspired or original.
Alexandra Paul stars alongside William Katt (Greatest American Hero), and they do a decent job with what they are given, it's just that there is so little to work with, both seem kind of bored with the proceedings....and the viewer isn't far behind.
I guess there is good reason why this disk isn't readily available, but I'm sure when the next remake hits theaters, this disk will get a re-release....but unless it's under $5 don't waste your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars the first remake June 11, 2013

This is a classic, need to watch for horror fans that enjoy some campy 80's style fun. It is the little known first remake of Paranha.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad February 3, 2010
About the only reason to get this is that Lorissa Mccomas is in it. They kill her character off at the 5 min mark! GRRRR
