According to Joe Dante in the DVD commentary originally released in 2004, the noise that the piranhas make underwater are the sounds of dental drills. While he didn't go into anymore detail than that, they could the put the edge of the drills into water and an underwater mic captured the sounds when they were turned on. Another possibility is the drills were turned on above water and recorded from underwater. See more »

Mr. Grogan, I'm looking for two teenagers that disappeared a few weeks ago. Some friends of theirs said they went camping around here.
Well, I haven't seen them. You talk to the sheriff's people?
I did. They told me that it's a pretty big mountain area.
So... I was wondering if there are any places around here they might be or if they may have gone for a swim.
Well if they drowned, they'd be swept down to the dam. So, you're starting off at the wrong end.
Boy, you're the wrong end all ...

The title sinks into the pond water at the start, and turns it blood red. Over the end credits, we hear the sound of piranhas swimming in the ocean. The water turns red as well. See more »
This movie rocks! One of the very best B movies of the 70's. OK I did see this movie on TV when I was a small child and yes I was scared for very good reasons. It wasn't safe to swim in the ocean and now rivers weren't safe. What next pools? This horror classic is fun to watch with friends just for laughs. OK you can see the strings on the piranhas, and yes the fins don't move? It is a little unbelievable. Or is it??? Unfortunately this movie is a hard to find which I find very disappointing. I would love to carry this title on DVD and purchase this as a great gag gifts for a few of my friends whom also love classic B movies! I myself highly recommend this movie especially if you enjoy B movies such as Day of the Animals, SSSSSS, and Alligator. I promise you a good time Just beware of fresh water!
