PIRANHA - 1972

It's Fishy Friday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots a story about a wildlife photographer and her brother who go to Venezuela for a photo shoot. They hire a guide to get them through the jungle, but, the trio have a run in with a local hunter. There's no production comany info about this movie on IMDb, filmed in Venezuela. Not to be confused with any Roger Corman films, alternate title is PIRANHA, PIRANHA!

Eegah!! sent us over a nice little soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there by the flaming furnace, NOW, Rufus The Gnat! Here's our audio offering for... PIRANHA!

This flick comes off as a travel guide most of the time. Photographer Terry and her bro, Art, land in Venezuela and go shopping!

The movie uses the popularity of Peter Brown and William Smith from their hit TV series, LAREDO. Peter plays guide Jim Pendrake and William plays sadistic weirdo hunter, Caribe.

They go get drunk at a colorful local bar!

Another reason for using Peter and William is that they were physically capable of doing their own stunts including dangerous motorcycle games!

More local color and what keeps the jungle area alive, gold!

There's more travelling around, from airplanes to native river boats.

Caribe goes berserk and burns down a whole village!

A great shot of Peter getting flipped off the walk and into the water by William. What a rip off, where are the freakin' piranhas!

This shot of Caribe circling Pendrake will make you dizzy!

But, never trust a miffed chick with a shotgun!!

As a bonus, I'm including my surf tune from my 1987 cassette album, INSTRUMENT OF DOOM. Eegah!! assists, here's... PIRANHA!

Shown is the cassette insert art and lineup.
