I can barely compose my thoughts after watching this.
7 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Five teenagers go motorboating one night, and suddenly find themselves in a rainstorm. Bikini-clad, they board an abandoned ship adrift at sea and end up fighting off .... something or other, on board the yacht. It's too dark and badly photographed to tell for certain. A circle of some sort was placed over the lens to simulate the creature's point-of-view, for scenes of it stalking these soon-to-be-fish-food fools.

Dead, mutated piranha in the freezer don't deter these nitwits from further inspecting the contents of this abandoned ship. Hell, they even cook them up and eat them for dinner. After poking his girl's ass with a dead fish, a guy finds some unidentifiable goo on a shelf, puts it to his mouth and tastes it! Yes, these characters will live a long a healthy life.

Thawed, mutated piranhas from hell go on a rampage, chowing down on these braindead cyphers for most of the rest of the film's run time, which was probably 15 minutes too long, incidentally.

There's a bit of nudity (which distracts from the gore) and gooey, vomiting effects and gore (which distracts from the nudity) in this badly dubbed grade Z-flick, which looks like it was filmed several years earlier and sat unreleased for quite a while, from the looks of the awful looking mullets, and the guy in the white speedo. But there are a few unintentional laughs, the girls look good and wear as little as possible, so it might be fun for fans of zero budget sleaze to watch this in the right frame of mind.
