Coming into these Emmys, “The Bold and the Beautiful” was the least nominated of the four broadcast soap operas with 18 bids, but it got the last laugh — at least at Creative Arts.

2004: All My Children's Kendall told Bianca her baby was dead."All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut."

When a rogue scientist discovers an immense egg in the dark recesses of a rainforest he thinks hes stumbled across his fame and fortune. But little does he know that it belongs to a terrifying hybrid monster, known only as the Piranhaconda (a moniker only mentioned once in the Entire film and dismissed as a stupid name!). Soon the beast is on the loose, hunting for its unborn child, rampaging through the country and destroying everything in its path in a mass of CGI-enhanced gory-glory.
A killer-creature B-movie from the Roger Corman staple, Piranhaconda is yet another made for Syfy TV movie suprisingly this one comes from director Jim Wynorski, who is well-known in the horror community for successfully mixing T&A and horror.
Directed by Jim Wynorski.
Starring Michael Madsen, Rachel Hunter, Shandi Finnessey, Terri Ivens, Robert 'Rib' Hills and Chris De Christopher.
Part Snake! Part Fish! All Killer!
No budget maestro Roger Corman and his merry band of exploitation filmmakers are back with another made for TV giant monster movie in the form of Piranhaconda which, as you may have guessed, is about a half-piranha-half-anaconda monster who eats people. Pure genius right?
Shown last year on the Syfy channel, Piranhaconda is a pseudo-sequel to Sharktopus and shares the same problems that film had. It also carries the burden and issues of other movies of its ilk such as Dinoshark, Megashark vs. Giant Octopus and Dinocroc vs. Supergator – they’re all great ideas and fantastic titles made by terrible filmmakers with dodgy scripts.
Let’s not beat around the bush, Piranhaconda is meant to be a bad film. I get that.
Starring: Michael Madsen, Rachel Hunter, Shandi Finnessey, Terri Ivens, Rib Hillis, Chris De Christopher, Kurt Yaeger, Michael Swan, Angie Savage, Noah Blake
Running Time: 82 minutes
I remember when I was a lad; for one of my birthdays some kid I hated showed up. Everyone hated him because he sucked. I invited him just to be polite and even though he knew we all hated him he still showed up. So we beat him senseless tied him to a tree and he was never seen again. That may have never actually happened, but it is a lot like the film Piranhaconda. If you know you’re going to hate it, why even bother? Piranhaconda is the latest from producer Roger Corman, headed by the director of Camel Spiders, Jim Wynorski, and from the writer of Sharktopus, Mike MacLean. In other words, it’s a pretty awesomely awful film.

Roger Corman is at it again as producer while Jim Wynorski directs. As always, the cast is filing out with a group of actors who fall into the “oh man, they used to be really cool” category. Most recently to join the cast are cult veteran/legend Michael Madsen and ex Sports Illustrated model Rachel Hunter. The rest of the cast consists of Diana Terranova ("Californication), Terri Ivens ("All My Children"), Shandi Finnessey (Sharktopus), Michael Swan ("The Bold and the Beautiful"), and Kurt Yaeger (Jim Wynorski's
Matchflick News brings word that production of the mutant piranha/anaconda monster movie Piranhaconda is ramping up to begin production. Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Rachel Hunter (pictured right, who will also be seen later this year in the Syfy disaster epic Miami Magma) will play the female lead, a character named "Thalia". Odds are she'll be the one to slay the carnivorous fish-reptile. Kill Bill badass Michael Madsen has been cast as a character named "Dr. Lovegrove". With the doctor moniker before his name, odds are
