Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

This is a classic, need to watch for horror fans that enjoy some campy 80's style fun.

The movie has a good cast, a good plot, good special effects (except that the fish don't actually move their fins while swimming), and tons of blood & gore.

Right off the bat, Corman goes for the gratuitous nudity, and things begin going downhill fast.

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.

A remake that actually surpasses the original classic! This one has it all: thrills, chills, laughs, movie in-jokes! A terrific ride. Kudos to all, especially the writer and director, who do justice to the material while putting their own original spin on it. Check it out!

Format: VHS Tape
The original "Piranha" was an entertaining cult classic but the decision by Roger Corman to remake it, nearly twenty years later, must have entirely been for finacial reasons because this straight-to-video retread is about as half-baked as it gets. Aside from a few changes of some character's ethnicities and gender, this is almost an exact copy of the first film.
As was the case in the original, two troublesome kids decide to go swimming at a government test site and end up "fish food". Enter Alexandra Paul as a very butch-looking P.I. who is hired by one of the kids' legal guardians who also happens to be the owner of a new resort that is opening up. With the help of overacting hillbilly hermit, William Katt, she ends up at the test site and drains the pool causing the piranha to run amok in the local river system. Of course, the greedy resort owner isn't going to let something like giant man-eating killer fish ruin his plans to open his resort.
This new "Piranha" offers very little added value aside from possibly a little bit more gore and nudity but not even enough to really make it worth your while. Of course, we get to see a grown-up "Punky Brewster" as Soleil Moon Frye shows up as a summer camp counselor with Mila Kunis (many years before she broke out on "That 70's Show") as Katt's hydrophobic daughter. Alex Simon's screenplay should barely qualify as a "studio rewrite" as it is practically a word-for-word duplicate of the original John Sayles script. Even worse, the severe overacting of the cast really kills the memorable dialouge. Only Roger Corman would save production costs by recycling the underwater photography from the original for a remake. Needless to say if the producers of this film wouldn't waste their money on it then you probably shouldn't either.

Piranha is a pretty good movie. I bought this movie to see Mila Kunis as a.little girl and she was cute. When people was bitten by the Piranhas and their legs and arms were bloody it was kind of fake looking but it was still a good storyline.

I baught this film for Soleil Moon Frye only and she does an excellent job in this cheesy horror film that is not scary and the pirahnas a little rubbery, also bad acting by William Katt.

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.
