Films: Piranha Sharks (2016)
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of average piranhas.
Summary: Sharks are scary. Piranha are deadly in numbers. Put them together and you should obviously get something utterly uncontrollable and dangerous, right? Well, the answer is inevitably going to be more than anyone bargained for.
History: Bred as a special fish tank animal for rich folk, the piranha sharks pretty much went about as well as you'd expect, and they ended up in the water system of New York. Twice as hungry and deadly as their namesakes, they invaded all the small and tight areas that the pipes led to, and terrorized all the people with their unquenchable bloodlust. Soon, special forces would be required to combat the new plague of monster fish.
Notable Kills: Any time they exit en masse from a small pipe, like in a tub or even a dunk-themed strip joint, something nasty follows.
Final Fate: Some grow to large size, but like the rest of their brethren, the piranha sharks are killed by gunfire and poisoning of their spawning pools. However, at least one was last seen swimming in a martini glass…
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2.5-They've certainly got some intimidating designs, and the way they can just appear in any place full of water is quite paranoia-inducing. But that's where the piranha shark's contributions to your fears end. It would be a bit easier to take them seriously if the CGI wasn't so bargain-bin level. We get it. Animating hundreds of little fish monsters is no picnic. But then we ask, if you can't do it in a way that sticks, why put such a challenge upon yourself?!
Trivia: -This whole film seemed to be done in order to capitalize on "Sharknado 2: The Second One".
-There is not a single shark these ones' size that is considered deadly to humans. Even the small cookie cutter shark, with its habit of biting into anything, is hardly a threat to people with how rarely it is encountered.
