Piranha Film Poster


This lake-bound horror film, spawned in the wake of 'Jaws', is an early production by future 'The Howling' collaborators John Sayles and Joe Dante. Two teenagers going for a dip inadvertently stumble upon a government secret weapon: deadly piranha fish, planned for use in Vietnam. Accidentally released, the piranha make their way to the site of a children's summer camp resort, and the watery carnage begins. James Cameron cut his directorial teeth on the sequel in 1982.
