Did You Know?


The movie was originally shot with no computer effects for the monster, just an actor in a rubber suit. The final cut was deemed not scary enough, and all the computer effects for the creature were added. See more »


During the escape attempt, Tina handcuffs the Molotov cocktail to the back of the monster's head. In one shot, the bottle falls to the ground. In the next shot, it is back on the creature's head. See more »


Lisa: Monica, I need to pee.
Monica: Just hold it in.

This movie will be lucky if it even makes it straight to video!
28 June 2001 | by (Claremont, CA) – See all my reviews

I had a chance to see a private screening of this movie. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT, waste your money to go see this movie in a theater or to even rent it. Pinata is hands-down the worst movie I've ever seen. The dialogue is horrible; in one scene, one of the characters describes that the sound the pinata makes is like the pain and suffering of a village of people, which incidentally matches the exact myth of the pinata. The biggest problem I had with this movie is that it is neither horror or a satire on horror; rather it is stuck somewhere in between. At least with the "Scream" trilogy and "Scary Movie" you get a decent attempt to ridicule the horror genre. Pinata seems uncertain of whether to ridicule the genre or be one of its movies. Please don't see this movie.
