release year: 1996
genre: horror remake
viewing setting: home VHS, 8/26/02
synopsis: In this scene-for-scene remake of the 1978 original, a pack of nasty carnivorous fish are released into a populated area's waterways.
impressions: Same shit, new actors. Refer to the original - the same things that made me wince there are present here. I'm not talking about the piranha, either - it was the plot and acting.
things to watch for: Lorissa McComas topless in the first few minutes.
final word: Just like Psycho, a pointless remake.
