Not a 'The Thing' Rip off! An Evil Dead rip off :)
5 September 2001 | by Sic CoyoteSee all my reviews

This film has so much in common with things happening in the evil dead, but it's got flying killer fish and a strange boat. This was made in the nineties? No way! Looks like it was made in the early eighties. Now I won't trash this movie to much,(there's enough trash in it already) it's strange, oversexed sick and has some terrible effects (although that may be a work print that I saw, even though it was translated to English). I bought this as a rather dodgily titled 'Piranha 4' Video CD when I was in Malta (where I also managed to catch a documentary on Italian horror movies on the TV, what luck!) I paid my £5 pounds and couldn't wait to get back to England to see it. I stuck it in and got drunk on vodka, I'm not sure if that effected my enjoyment of the film, but it was GREAT! Not in a classic movie way or in an Evil Dead way, but in the way it was just so wacky sick and crazy that you just keep watching! Don't expect anything more than trash and you will be in for a good time, just best watched when drunk I think :) Oh yes and look out for some great fake explosions.
