Daft B-movie semi-spoof that sees a murderous shoal of piranhas munching through local inhabitants. It's not particularly funny or scary, but it's inoffensive enough. Fans of Arachnophobia will probably like it.

Not as good as I expected. Being a fan of Joe Dante, I thought this would be funny in a quirky way, much like Gremlins or The 'Burbs but it was played as a horror film. Granted it was still a B Movie and it didn't take itself seriously but it wasn't as light-hearted as I anticipated. It was a bit of a disappointment.
