Piranha Series Episode 1

Finding Gory

Before director Joe Dante unleashed a gang of Gremlins onto small town America, he flushed a pool of genetically-modified Piranha into the 1978 summer movie season in his first blockbuster. Can a drunk divorcee, a ditzy skip-tracer, and Body Snatchers hysteric Kevin McCarthy get down river to warn a summer camp, and Dick Miller’s new water park, about the fast moving threat? And did these killer fish school Jaws 2 on how to make a follow-up that actually satisfies Steven Spielberg? Donate for Silver and get back into the water with Now Playing this Spring.
