Movie information:


"There's something in the water."

From director Alexandre Aja (THE HILLS HAVE EYES) comes the new action thriller PIRANHA. Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria.

An unexpected earth tremor causes a rift to open the floor of the lake and all hell breaks loose as a million prehistoric man-eating fish flood into its waters. These ravenous, razor-toothed piranhas that have been trapped for 2 million years are unstoppable killing machines.

An unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area's new razor-toothed residents. How fast can YOU swim?

The films stars Jessica Szohr (GOSSIP GIRL), Steven R McQueen (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES), Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O'Connell, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Kelly Brook and Christopher Lloyd.
