Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

A terrific and funny remake of the horror classic!
19 November 1998 | by (LA, CA.) – See all my reviews

This is a terrific, and very fun update, of the 1978 John Sayles-Joe Dante drive-in classic. This one has it all: gore, laughs, movie buff in-jokes, gorgeous babes, and some genuine suspense and scares. Well-directed and keeps just enough of the original script intact, while adding a lot of clever new writing, to make this a fun ride to grab from the video store. Check it out!
