When flesh-eating piranhas are accidently released into a summer resort’s rivers, the guests become their next meal.
A fast-paced, campy, and humorous ride all the way, Piranha is a genuinely entertaining B film that recalls not only Jaws but many of the classic monster flicks of the 50’s. The screenplay by John Sayles has lots of good suspense and a witty kind of humor. Dante’s direction is nicely done, keeping the energetic mood of the film high. The special FX aren’t half bad, especially considering the limited budget. In fact the movie packs some truly gory images. Pino Donaggio’s music score is beautifully well done.
Stars Bradford Dillman and Heather Menzies are quite good, making for some amusing and unlikely heroes. The supporting cast is good as well and has a number of veteran actors – Kevin McCarthy, Keenan Wynn, Dick Miller, and Barbara Steele. Over all, Piranha is a good old-fashioned horror delight for genre fans.
