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

Half piranha half anaconda in...Hawaii?
4 August 2013 | by highwaytouristSee all my reviews

OK, I'll try to sum it up. First, a Captain Ahab wannabe scientist discovers a half piranha, half anaconda in Hawaii. He gets one of its eggs and escapes, only to be kidnapped by some criminals whose activities are unexplained. Meanwhile, a low-budget film crew is shooting a lousy horror movie, though it can't be as terrible as this movie. The criminals kidnap part of the film crew to hold them for ransom, but they run into the piranhaconda, and then a second piranhaconda shows up for good measure. It's never really explained how a piranha-anaconda could create a hybrid breed, and it's also never explained how it wound up in Hawaii, which is not native to either creature. The film stars Michael Madsen as the mad scientist/hostage and Rachel Hunter as the diva star of the terrible movie, both obviously in it for an easy paycheck. It was produced by none other than Roger Coreman, who made several terrible science fiction films in the 1950's. Here, he proves that he hasn't lost his touch- he can still make terrible science fiction movies. In place of unconvincing zipper-backed monsters, we have unconvincing computer animated monsters, complete with laughable death scenes where even the victims seem to have difficulty keeping straight faces. The Sci Fi Channel strikes again, strikes out that is.
