Piranha Plot Revealed


UHM stumbled upon the full plot behind the remake of Piranha. Last we heard of the project was that Dimension was talking to Chuck Russell to direct the film after scripting it. Now we are left with a rather lengthy synopsis and a couple prototype images that you can oogle over.

All of the information was made available by Wild Bunch. Which will probably sound famailiar because they also had all the information on Mansons latest feature Phatasmagoria. Here is the synopsis they have posted for the film.

They’re back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Havasu explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend - the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem.

But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers. Havasu sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through.

Piranhas - a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time.

Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone. In seconds.

As bodies start disappearing, beautiful, feisty dock manager Julie Tupper realizes the horrifying truth. The idyllic little town she calls home is facing unthinkable carnage, no one wants to listen... and her diving expert fiancé has gone missing on the water.

Sounds like another hit for the Sci Fi channel! I don't know how well this would do in theatres but I must say those piranhas do look kick ass. We will keep you informed if anything else develops.
