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

Goofs

Trying to escape a character runs to a road where a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country is waiting on the road he tries to start it twice with no luck. He then pops the hood but before he can even look another character steps out of the jungle and says "it's no good they took the distributor cap!" Huh?? Did someone transplant a 60s engine into that 2008? Modern cars don't use distributor caps and haven't for more than 20 years. Ooops. See more »

Quotes

Arturo: It's like a unholy union between a piranha and an anaconda.
Talia: You mean a piranhaconda?
Pike: I can't believe you just said that.

Just like you would expect.
2 July 2012 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

Of course this is not a good movie! But what else did you expect from a movie called "Piranhaconda", about an half snake, half piranha, that loves to crush and eat people. At least everyone in this movie knew what they got involved with and never took things too seriously. This is often a good thing and it at least still keeps the movie somewhat fun and tolerable to watch.

Basically all of these movies play out the same; a killer animal is on the loose and randomly kills a bunch of people you don't even care about, with always a guy and girl, who used to be or still are in love, trying to kill the creature. Really, once you have seen one of these Roger Corman/Syfy channel movies, you have seen them all and know actually how things are going to play out. They don't even attempt anymore really to come up with some original moments. And it also seems that all of these movies got shot at the same locations, no doubt because they were the cheapest to film at. It basically makes this movie just like any other one, that came out recently, done by Corman.

People that enjoy movies will still get a kick out of it. There is plenty of cheese and camp to enjoy, coming from the hands of the actors and filmmakers. It isn't trying to be more than it is and it makes no assumptions about it that this is being even a remotely good movie.

The one thing that always stands out about these movies, in terms of horrible quality, are its special effects. I don't know who keeps doing these special effects from his mother's basement on his home computer but it's absolutely horrible and I sincerely hope they start putting some more money and effort into it in the near future, since it will most likely make the movies less annoying and cringing to watch.

And I really don't know what Michael Madsen is doing in this. He got top billing, probably because of his name and fame but in fact he is only being a supporting character, that could had been played by anybody really.

Only somewhat watchable and enjoyable if you like cheesy bad movies. Everybody else will only be annoyed and amazed at how bad this movie in fact is.

4/10
