The pond gets investigated by during the search the pond gets drained to see if they can find some clues of the young couple. Well the draining actually drains the killer fish in the water system.

We find out that the military created a mutate breed of piranha for the Vietnam War and now they are released in the populist. People start to get eating alive while swimming, touching the water, changing motors on a boat and what is more fun than involving a summer camp? Lots of blood in the water!

Rating: Coming from the era and cash in of Jaws comes another film that has terror in the water. The acting is not the greatest but the film really is not that bad. Sure the sound of the attacking fish can be annoying and almost comical but it is what it is….piranhas! This opened the door for some really bad sequels but luckily the film series was brought to life again with the 3D version. Grab some beers , some friends and watch the little fishies go wild.
