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

When the paragliding girl is about to be attacked by the Piranhas there is a set of close up shots where you see her in the water up to the waist. To do this in paragliding, you need to boat to be moving. However in the shots you can clearly see that the actress is motionless. See more »

Lacks of originality and too predictable
12 November 2010 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

(Sorry my bad English, I will make my best effort) First I am not a fan of gore, even I had not seen even a trailer of this movie. I just watched this movie, my review is short: teenagers having fun, some erotic scenes and then a blood bath. In my opinion the scenes were too predictable: get anxious in a scene, first reaction was a mistake, then immediately comes the scare followed by a strong sound.

Merely, without the gore scenes, I think I was watching "Naked Wild On", except for the piranhas.

Some parts of the movie were just awful, I do not want waste time reviewing them.

A few years ago I watched "Elfen Lied", a Japanese anime, my first impression was just a nonsense blood bath, however, after viewing the next chapters, the plot was very interesting, nothing like this movie.

So, if you are not a fan of gore, or at least want a good plot in this type of movies, do not watch this movie.
