Movie Summary

Director:
James Cameron
Released:
1981
Rating:
R
Piranha II: The Spawning is an American horror film best known as the directorial debut of James Cameron (Terminator II: Judgement Day, Titanic, Avatar). Vacationers head to the beach for some rest and relaxation. What they get is mutant Piranhas flying right up into their business. That's right, THESE FISH CAN FLY! Initially, Cameron was hired as the special effects director for the film. When the original director left, Cameron we-wrote the script under a pseudonym, and took over directing duties. The film was shot in Italy and had a crew made up of non-English speakers, which was a challenge. While Cameron made all the decisions on the set, he was not allowed into the editing room. Later, when the producers were at the Cannes film festival, he broke into the editing room and made his own cut of the film. Unfortunately, the producers caught him, and had it re-edited.
