Storyline

Lake Victoria's annual Spring party by 50,000 young revelers is about to turn into a feeding frenzy with prehistoric hunger-pains. With knee-trembler's above the waves and tremors below, released from their dormant sleep, thousands upon thousands of flesh-eating nippers are released into the lake with whetted appetites and razor-sharp teeth. With a motley crew of strangers thrown together to defend these shores, it is now up to them to prevent the largest eat-out in human, and piranha, history. Written by Cinema_Fan

Worst movie I have ever watched.
28 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I am forced to give this movie a one because there is no option for a zero or minus infinity. I have never given a review before, but this movie is so outrageously horrible, I feel compelled to warn everyone, cause it has surprisingly good reviews.( ???) Once in while, I like watching benign mindless fun, but this was sick. There is NO plot and needless vulgarity. Man-eating fish are the least source of horror. It is, undoubtedly, the worst movie I have ever watched. Don't waste money watching it. The only good thing about the movie is that it makes u want to jump out of the cinema and get some exercise. Make sure your parents don't watch it !
