Rather than shoot new special effects for the film, Roger Corman simply recycled the effects from the original. Sets and props were also designed to look like the first film to help accommodate the recycling of the special effects. See more »
Despite being described as 'freezing', the pool that the piranhas were originally in had steam rising from it, indication that it was, in fact, heated. See more »
The fish were bred for intelligence and endurance and God knows what else.

This movie is one of the worst remakes I have ever seen in my life! The acting is laughable and Corman has not improved his piranhas any since 1978. 90% of the special effects are lifted from Piranha (1978), Up From The Depths (1979) and Humanoids From The Deep (1979). It makes Piranha II: The Spawning look like it belongs on the American Film Institute List.
