Piranhaconda is an American science fiction film, premiered on June 16, 2012, on the Syfy Channel.[1] It is directed by Jim Wynorski, produced by Roger Corman, and stars Michael Madsen, Rib Hillis, Rachel Hunter, and Terri Ivens.


Two piranhacondas hunt for their stolen egg. Scientist Professor Lovegrove, who stole the egg, hitchhikes to a Hawaiian island and meets a movie crew filming on location. The star, the scientist, and some crew members are kidnapped and held for ransom. A piranhaconda roaming the island devours several women and some scientists who are searching for a rare flower. The creature attacks the kidnappers' hideout, but the film crew and the scientist escape unharmed. The lead kidnapper finds a camera. The film within it shows that the scientist stole the egg, which caused the piranhaconda to attack, and he decides to kill the snake and the film crew. The snake follows the film crew, who are in a truck, but it is wounded by a grenade. The second piranhaconda arrives and, sensing blood, attacks and kills its wounded mate. It then decides to track down the film crew. Lovegrove reveals that he had the egg, so they try to escape via boat, but the piranhaconda stalls their plans. Lovegrove pretends to get rid of the egg, but doesn't, causing the creature to follow them. The crew become trapped by five remaining kidnappers, but the piranhaconda eats the kidnappers. Lovegrove, Jack, and Rose get back to the boat, but Jack stays on shore to destroy the creature. On the boat, Rose realizes that Lovegrove had the egg all along. She throws it into the river and shoves him overboard. He is then killed by the piranhaconda. Rose goes back to shore and finds Jack. Using the egg, they lure the piranhaconda to a waterfall. Jack slips a bomb into the case and throws it at the beast; then he and Rose jump into the river below. The bomb goes off and decapitates the piranhaconda. The two make a date with one another. They kiss before being killed by a third piranhaconda, thus ending the film.



Piranhaconda was filmed in Kauaʻi, Hawaiʻi [2]and financed with an estimated $1,000,000.[3]
