Piranha 3D

Don't Scream...Just Swim!

Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there's something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the areas new razor-toothed residents.

Fisherman Matthew Boyd is fishing in Lake Victoria, Arizona when a small earthquake hits, splitting the lake floor and causing a whirlpool. Boyd falls in and is ripped apart by a school of piranhas that emerge from the chasm and ascend the vortex. That night, Sheriff Julie Forester searches for the missing Matthew Boyd with Deputy Fallon, who has found Boyd's boat. They find his mutilated body and contemplate closing the beach down.

The next morning, a lone cliff diver is attacked and consumed by the marauding fish. Julie takes a team of seismologist divers to the fissure. They speculates that the rift leads to a buried prehistoric lake. Two of the seismologist went scuba dive to the bottom, discovering a large cavern filled with large egg stalks. Both are killed before they can escape or alert the others. That left Julie and the other seismologist divers, Novak. They pull the corpse into the boat, capturing a lone piranha.

They brought the piranha to a marine biologist, Mr. Goodman and he explains that the piranhas are a prehistoric species, long believed-extinct and must had been trapped underground for over two million years. So they warned the tourists to evacuate the beach but their warnings are ignored until the piranhas attacked. Mr. Goodman calls Julie on the radio, telling her that the glands on the piranha they obtained were not mature meaning that the piranhas they've been fighting are babies. The babies? So where are the parents? I'm not gonna telling you guys! See it for yourselves!
