Storyline

Intent on finding the eggs of the gigantic half-piranha, half-anaconda hybrid that slithers around the lush Hawaiian jungles, the expert herpetologist, Dr Robert Lovegrove, and a team of scientists enter the beast's habitat. There, a film crew is shooting their latest slasher movie, utterly unaware that ruthless Pike and his gun-totting mercenaries are watching their every move. However, the criminals are the least of their worries, as the scaly, bone-crushing predator with the hundreds of razor-sharp teeth is lurking in the shadows, and humans are its prey. The massive monstrosity is part-fish and part-snake, combining the best of two worlds. Is there an escape from the jaws of the Piranhaconda? Written by Nick Riganas

Better than average for a SyFy picture
22 July 2012 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

A huge creature that's part snake, part fish is terrorizing the cast and crew of a B-movie, I'm guessing because it's mad that Professor Lovegrove (Michael Madsen, Sin City, Kill Bill) had stolen it's eggs (Piranhacondas don't know how to compartmentalize it seems) That's the threadbare plot for this SyFy original in a nutshell. Sure there's another plot about kidnappers but that one meanders and isn't that interesting. It's all about the snake.

Slightly above average (for a SyFy film). The effects are fairly well done and there is some fun to be had. Plus I'm still a huge admirer of Director Jim Wynorski even if it's more for his amazing work in the '80's as opposed to his more recent output.
