STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
The above OLS pretty much says all there is to be said about this entertaining little flick,which was purchased on the off-chance at a spur-of-the-moment retail indicisiveness.There is just so much to be admired on it's camp levels here.The funny little noises the piranha fish make they're attacking their victims,the rather plain/wooden acting of those in the lead roles,and the inevitably dated effects.Still,it's a good film,worth buying and treasuring.***
