Piranhaconda - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
WHILE filming the latest installment to their horror trilogy on the scenic island of Hawaii, low-budget filmmakers Milo and his crew desperately try to combat the endless barrage of problems that threaten the filming process and ultimately their movie’s success.
With investors dropping out like flies, a lead actress who is more concerned with drinking a cold Frappuccino than her performance and a gang of kidnappers who are intent on capturing cast members and holding them for ransom, it’s safe to say that Head Chopper 3 just isn’t running as smoothly as desired.
Yet, an even bigger problem lurks precariously on the island that presents a much, MUCH bigger calamity than those surrounding the making of their amateur slasher movie…
When hitchhiking scientist Professor Lovegrove (Michael Madsen) discovers a nest of eggs belonging to a gargantuan creature previously thought to have only existed in Polynesian folklore – the so-called “River Devil”, a freak of nature aberration between a piranha and an anaconda – a terrifying game of cat and mouse ensues on the tropical island involving Professor Lovegrove, the low-budget film crew, an unsuspecting holiday couple and a band of kidnappers who have finally met their match!
From executive producer legend Roger Corman (Piranha; Little Shop of Horrors; Dinoshark), veteran Hollywood exploitation director Jim Wynorski (Chopping Mall; Camel Spiders) and writer Mike MacLean (Sharktopus), Piranhaconda stars Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs; Kill Bill: Vol 1; Donnie Brasco), Rachel Hunter (The Benchwarmers), Shandi Finnessey (Sharktopus) and Rib Hillis (Two and a Half Men; CSI: Miami).
It is available to buy on DVD from Monday, January 7, 2013.

About Dragon Wasps and Sand Sharks
Sand Sharks – A shark that swims in sand?! No, honestly! Sunbathing on a beach has never been the same since this came out earlier this year and I’m not sure whether that’s something to do with the sharks or Brooke Hogan’s (daughter of the mighty Hulk Hogan) acting…
Dragon Wasps – The ultimate cross breed between timely jungle thrillers like Predator and Anaconda and giant critter delights such as Eight Legged Freaks and Lake Placid. Let’s put it this way, Dragon Wasps does for bees what Arachnophobia did for spiders!
