Lake Victoria's annual Spring party by 50,000 young revelers is about to turn into a feeding frenzy with prehistoric hunger-pains. With knee-trembler's above the waves and tremors below, released from their dormant sleep, thousands upon thousands of flesh-eating nippers are released into the lake with whetted appetites and razor-sharp teeth. With a motley crew of strangers thrown together to defend these shores, it is now up to them to prevent the largest eat-out in human, and piranha, history.

Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Kelly Brook and Riley Steele spent two weeks training for their nude synchronized underwater swimming set piece.

Factual errors: The 'sinking' boat which needed to be rescued was in fact in the middle of rocks and on rocks and not sinking at all. Once it partially sunk, it stayed there, and the occupants could have just survived as it was.

Matt Boyd: Oh boy, that's a fast fish.

User Review

The Best movie about Killer Piranhas ever made.

Rating: 7/10

I thought this movie was going to be just AWFUL. However I was mistaken, it was actually pretty good. The acting, as I would've expected was mediocre, but no one in the cast was destined to shine in this film. I also had a good time watching the film, I was really happy how the Piranhas looked. Don't go in expecting a masterpiece like Citizen Kane or Schindler's List, cause you'll definitely be disappointed, but with a movie title like this, who would? Just go in expecting some laughter and have some fun with it. Also there's a lot of nudity and gore, so I don't advice parents to take your kids in theater to watch this film. Piranha 3-D lived up to its title, featuring Killer Piranhas with 3-D. It isn't in any way perfect, but then again, it doesn't need to be.
