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

Worse movie I've seen in the last years
4 October 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This "movie" is absolutely appalling! The start may trick you into thinking that it may not be "that bad", believe me, if your IQ is over 80- 90, you will be gasping for air and trying to leave the cinema before it reaches half-time. It is so bad that it makes B-movies masterpieces. The "story" fades away into outer space in the first 10 minutes, after that all there is to it are boobs and gore... and even that makes no sense. I can't believe they actually released this crap, it should have went directly to DVD. I won't bother with an actual review because others have written better ones, I will just advise you to keep your money, and, if you insist in having your intelligence and common sense insulted by seeing this movie, find a way to see it for free, or you will be really sorry. I really wish I could give it a 0 here, and toss it into the garbage, unfortunately I can't....
