Piranha II: The Spawning Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This poorly scripted horror film about miniature, finny "jaws" details the mating rituals of the fictional "grunion" fish (falsely introduced as "piranhas" for more box-office recognition) and their need to attack and kill humans -- either inside or outside the water. These saber-toothed wonders have been hatched from a canister of eggs on a sunken ship in front of a posh Club Med resort, which features the mating rituals of humans who at times need to attack and kill fish. The product of a series of secret genetic engineering experiments, the toothy fish are to be tracked down by an undercover biochemist ([[Performer~P45261~Steve Marachuk~stevemarachuk]]), who is soon joined by the resident scuba diver at the resort ([[Performer~P53588~Tricia O'Neil~triciaoneil]]). With believable gore but second-rate special effects, this film in no way presages the coming success of its debut director, [[Performer~P10397~James Cameron~jamescameron]]. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
