Bad-movie enthusiasts will doubtless have fun watching these oversized piscine predators leaping from the ocean and laying waste to Florida's coastal regions, but hasn't this tiresome, kitschy, so-bad-it's-good fad run its course?

We can ridicule every frame.

Daily Mail [UK]

Incredibly for a film which presumably intends to at least alarm an audience, the budget seems to have been spent entirely on set-piece explosions with no money remaining for the actual fish.

Scientists genetically modify piranhas. They start killing. People doubt it's the piranhas. They find out it is, the hard way. The is SciFi (or SyFy now)… More

When genetic experiments get out of hand, piranhas turn into giant, flying, cannibalistic hermpahrodites that explode when they contact building materials.… More

With a cover like Mega Piranha I expected some cheesy and over the top fun as I would with any movie called Mega Piranha. Even those expectations it still… More

Tiffany and Barry Williams fight Man eating fish that are growing exponentially. Not as exciting as you'd hope.

Paul Logan looks like he's infuriated by something throughout the entire movie. This is an obvious mockbuster of Piranha 3D, and though I haven't seen… More
