Shark Week!

Piranha (1978)

Directed by
Joe Dante

Our mini Shark Week celebration wraps up with the highest-caliber Jaws ripoff around: the Roger Corman-produced, John Sayles-scripted, Joe Dante-directed gorefest Piranha!

When thousands of military hybrid piranhas are accidentally released into a river used by a children’s holiday camp, the race is on to get downstream before the flesh-eating fish do.

“The best example of how to do a B-movie knockoff.” – FEARnet
