In this satire on 70s B-movie industry, a young ditsy pretty blond arrives in Hollywood to try her luck as an actress. After some mishap, a shady agent finds her a job with a sleazy B-movie crew plagued by strange deadly accidents.
The novelization also fills in some trivia about Maggie. When her boyfriend just walked out on her, she hired a skip-tracer to find him. She got so hooked on the process she decided to become one herself. By the time she caught up with her ex, she wasn't interested anymore in why he left. See more »

Dante's movies are either hit or miss for me. This one was a huge miss. It wasn't that funny or thrilling for me. They were clearly trying to cash in on the Jaws fame by making a spoof, but he fails miserably. Everybody takes everything seriously in this film. I was just completely bored throughout the entire thing. The attacks are dull and lack suspense. There were no interesting characters, even though the actors seemed to be game. Greats like Steele and McCarthy add some much needed class to this movie, but I disliked everything else. If you wanna watch a really fun Piranha movie, watch Piranha 3D (NOT the crappy sequel, Piranha 3DD)
