Plot:
On the Orinoco River in Venezuela, a strain of genetically modified piranha fish has escaped into an isolated tributary of the river.

Through human interference with the local environment, the deadly mutated fish swim downstream, killing all that crosses their path. The mega piranha fish gradually head towards Florida at the height of the tourist season…

Reviews:
Mega Piranha will definitely rock your cinematic socks off, even if you intentionally warped motion pictures aren’t necessarily your thing. As bad as it is, I can’t say that I wasn’t thoroughly entertained.” Bloody Good Horror

“These movies are bad. Horribly, terribly bad. But they’re also fun. Oddly, painfully, wince-inducingly fun and you’re either kind of person that likes having this kind of fun (and you’ve made Roger Corman an incredibly wealthy man) or you’re not (and probably don’t understand “The Three Stooges” either).” Depressed Press

“My friends, it is no secret that The Asylum has made some bad movies. We know this. Hell, they know this. And while it could be argued that Mega Piranha is about as bad as anything they’ve ever made, this movie here has so much frenetic energy while at the same time completely ignoring any kind of attention to detail, that it is almost irresistible.” Film Critics United

“There is a lot of material that works in the film and yet it appears saddled with a pre-approved formula that forces certain elements to occur at a pre-determined moment in the running time […] Despite the limitations, Mega Piranha is an entertaining film that will please most audiences looking to pass an evening with a goofy monster movie.” Horror Talk

“What’s less frightening than a school of fish that can strip a man to the bone in less than a minute? Most things, I would say. However, someone should have told the writers that if you make the fish large enough to swallow you whole – and give them retarded-looking teeth to boot – the whole concept becomes unintentionally hilarious.” Juggernaut of Stupidity

“If you want to watch a horror movie, this probably isn’t for you. If you want to watch a comedy horror, this probably isn’t for you. But if you and a bunch of friends want to watch a film that you can point and laugh at and one that needs little concentration then Mega Piranha could be just the ticket.” Love Horror

“If you like awful CGI monsters and the usual products put out by The Asylum, feel free to whistle right along to the tune of Mega Piranha. Otherwise, I suggest digging up something else. Even some of the more popular Asylum flicks, like a Mega Shark or a Sharknado, would be more worth your time than this.” Misan[trope]y

” …the film hits the height of ridiculousness and never stops. There is the side-splitting image of a school of giant piranha racing down the river leaping in and out of the water en masse. The film is clearly aiming for an image as ludicrous as that of the shark tackling the airplane in Mega Shark and so we have several such scenes with the giant piranha tackling a battleship and then a nuclear submarine.” Moria

Mega Piranha is excessively overproduced even for a low budget affair. Nearly every cut to another scene is edited with a flash, the sound of a rush of wind, and tinkering with film speed. They edit the hell out of this movie. Segue senes are mercilessly repeated.” Screen Anarchy

Mega Piranha expertly walks the line between so-bad-it’s-good and so-bad-it’s-shite. As an achievement in filmmaking it fails miserably on every possible level, but if you’re the sort who takes pleasure in laughing at bad editing and direction as much as the usual bad acting and script, then you’ll be in hog’s heaven here.” That Was a Bit Mental

” …most of Mega Piranha is just plain flat out unadulterated stupidity. From the idiotic scientific explanation for the piranha (Tiffany was trying to make them “more robust”), to the irritating Venezuelan dictator villain, to the superfluous title cards stating each character’s names and occupation; just about everything about this movie is Lamesville.” The Video Vacuum
