Storyline

In this sequel to Sharktopus, two Piranhacondas hunt down their stolen egg. The scientist who stole the egg hitchikes the island and meets up with a movie crew on-set of filming. The star, the scientist, and some crew-members get kidnapped by some money-craving people who put them on ransom for some dough. Meanwhile, a Piranhaconda roams the island, along the way eating an island-goer, and some scientists searching for a rare flower. The snake comes to the kidnappers' hideout and attacks. The crew and the scientist escape. The lead kidnapper finds a camera and realizes that the scientist stole the egg, which caused the snake to attack, and he decides to kill the snake, and the crew. The snake follows the crew, who are in a truck, but is wounded by a grenade. The second Piranhaconda arrives and, sensing blood, attacks its wounded mate. It then decides to track down the crew. The scientist reveals that he had the egg, so they try to escape via boat. But the Piranhaconda stalls their ... Written by Anonymous

Yep... definitely one of those "Title says everything" movies.
13 July 2014 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Movies like this are very difficult to rate. On one hand they are deliberately made to be awful and somehow deliberately acquire the status movies like The Room and Plan 9 get for being "so bad it's funny". Now I don't believe movies like this have that kind of charm to them but in my opinion when done right (...Whatever the hell THAT means) they can be a ton of fun to watch. This is one of them - Pirahnaconda.

While on a B- movie shoot and a science expedition are in the jungle they come across a creature from ancient folklore that only comes out of hibernation every few decades a giant snake with razor-sharp teeth and other features of a pirahna to cause havoc and kill people. While this is happening both the only survivor of that science expedition (Michael Madsen) and the film crew survivors are kidnapped by domestic terrorists or something and soon they have bigger things to worry about such as the fact that 2 Pirahnaconda's are after them.

If you know this kind of movie then you'll expect some goofy acting (at best) and having a really tongue-in-cheek tone as well as horrible special effects (to be fair, the Pirahnaconda doesn't look THAT bad... It doesn't look that good either) so for what it's going for - it's not that bad. If you have clear expectations in mind (if you don't the theme song sums it up - horrible, campy, yet fun)
