A hybrid creature - half piranha and half anaconda -- attacks a low-budget horror movie crew on location near her nest when her egg is stolen. Now they must outrun and kill the deadly piranhaconda as well as stop the mad scientist who stole the egg - before they all become dinner.
Load of rubbish!!
Highly Overrated But Still Good
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
You know the story, and it doesn't matter all that much if you don't. Tacky effects, great scenery - Hawaii gorgeous as always, hot actresses and actors with serviceable acting ability and that guy who was in that thing that one time many years ago.The only thing that keeps this from being an actual Sedaris movie is the absence of Andy or his son from the producer list and the lack of nudity since this is basic cable broadcast. The production companies should make these shows in dual-format for Syfy (who tragically lost their spell checker some years ago) and for Showtime or Cinemax.The effects are really bad, I mean REALLY bad but the acting is OK and movies like this keep the majority of Hollywood in business, plus at least these actors got a trip to Hawaii, so I will give it a thumbs-up. Check it out.
PIRANHACONDAWell another year has gone and it is my birthday again... so what does that mean? A lads night of food, games and rubbish movies.This was the first movie we watched... you know exactly what to expect when the title is Piranhaconda. I don't even think I need to explain the movie do I? The movie is about a group of movie makers that are in the woods making a movie... it is not going very well, but get's a lot worst when they get attacked one by one by a giant snake.The story was alright I suppose seeing as you don't have much choice when a giant snake/piranha thing is eating everyone in sight.It is nothing original, but for a cheesy b-movie that is fine.The acting was terrible from everyone. Not one person did a good job, not even the star of the movie. The movie stars Michael Madsen, Rachel Hunter, Rib Hillis, Terri Ivens, Chris De Christopher and Shandi Finnessey. Now I know what you are thinking... "What the hell is Mr. Blonde from Reservoir Dogs doing in a film like this?"... trust me, we all thought the same thing! He did look a mess and his acting was bad. He came across in this movie like he couldn't care less. He really looked like he regretted signing up for this movie from the start... and I can't blame him.The movie was that bad, that it actually made it quite good. We were laughing all the way through the movie at how bad it was. There were plenty of half naked women running around the entire movie... most of which was completely unnecessary. There are some comedy lines in there. They were there on purpose and were not that funny... but to be honest the funniest part was the special effects.The special effects were so bad. The snake thing looking like a 1990's computer game. It looked like it was not blended into the background at all. Even for a 2013 b-movie, this was weak!It is an entertaining movie if you have your friends over and you all fancy watching a really funny movie and can chat throughout it.I will give this film 4 out of 10."Suck lead, you hillbilly butt nugget!"For more reviews, please like my Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ordinary-Person-Movie- Reviews/456572047728204?ref=hl
A huge creature that's part snake, part fish is terrorizing the cast and crew of a B-movie, I'm guessing because it's mad that Professor Lovegrove (Michael Madsen, Sin City, Kill Bill) had stolen it's eggs (Piranhacondas don't know how to compartmentalize it seems) That's the threadbare plot for this SyFy original in a nutshell. Sure there's another plot about kidnappers but that one meanders and isn't that interesting. It's all about the snake.Slightly above average (for a SyFy film). The effects are fairly well done and there is some fun to be had. Plus I'm still a huge admirer of Director Jim Wynorski even if it's more for his amazing work in the '80's as opposed to his more recent output.
Of course this is not a good movie! But what else did you expect from a movie called "Piranhaconda", about an half snake, half piranha, that loves to crush and eat people. At least everyone in this movie knew what they got involved with and never took things too seriously. This is often a good thing and it at least still keeps the movie somewhat fun and tolerable to watch.Basically all of these movies play out the same; a killer animal is on the loose and randomly kills a bunch of people you don't even care about, with always a guy and girl, who used to be or still are in love, trying to kill the creature. Really, once you have seen one of these Roger Corman/Syfy channel movies, you have seen them all and know actually how things are going to play out. They don't even attempt anymore really to come up with some original moments. And it also seems that all of these movies got shot at the same locations, no doubt because they were the cheapest to film at. It basically makes this movie just like any other one, that came out recently, done by Corman.People that enjoy movies will still get a kick out of it. There is plenty of cheese and camp to enjoy, coming from the hands of the actors and filmmakers. It isn't trying to be more than it is and it makes no assumptions about it that this is being even a remotely good movie. The one thing that always stands out about these movies, in terms of horrible quality, are its special effects. I don't know who keeps doing these special effects from his mother's basement on his home computer but it's absolutely horrible and I sincerely hope they start putting some more money and effort into it in the near future, since it will most likely make the movies less annoying and cringing to watch.And I really don't know what Michael Madsen is doing in this. He got top billing, probably because of his name and fame but in fact he is only being a supporting character, that could had been played by anybody really.Only somewhat watchable and enjoyable if you like cheesy bad movies. Everybody else will only be annoyed and amazed at how bad this movie in fact is.4/10http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/
