Mega Piranha (also known as Megapiranha) is a 2010 film produced by The Asylum. As a mockbuster, it was produced to capitalise on the 2010 film Piranha 3-D[1].



The film focusses on the Amazon River, where a strain of Megapiranha, a prehistoric species that supposedly died out millions of years ago, have survived in an isolated tributary of the river. Through human interference of the local environment, the megapiranha manage to escape from their isolated spot and swim downstream, killing all that crosses their path, as they gradually make their way towards Florida at the height of the tourist season...[2]


The film was immediately met with skepticism upon its announcement. The horror film website Dread Central wrote of the film:

Now the question becomes whether Mega Piranha means we should expect a super-sized piranha a la Asylum's Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus or if they are basing their film around the prehistoric Megapiranha, a toothier, three-foot version of the carnivorous fish that went extinct millions of years ago. Given the big screen 3D remake is about these Megapiranha, I would say odds are high the latter will prove the case.[3]
