Lasky (Lee Majors) is the leader of a team of masterthieves whose latest raid involves to blow up a whole powerstation just to steal a fortune in diamonds. The loot is later sunk in a lake, and Lasky and friends agree to not dive for the loot for the next 60 days. Of course, some of the gang are overcome by greed and want their share a little sooner then others - and when going diving they are eaten up by piranhas. Turns out one of the gang, gambler Diller (James Franciscus), has taken some extra precautions to keep the loot safe. But then Diller and his girlfriend Kate (Karen Black) decide to get the diamonds for themselves just the same, and somehow Diller persuades Kate to do the dive, and she is almost eaten by the piranhas as well. But once Diller and Kate have the stones, they have to realize their boat has sunk, so they hitch a ride with a tourship - that for some reason also carries Lasky, who has long grown wise of Diller's betrayal, and his model girlfriend Gabrielle (Margaux Hemingway). Then though a hurricane wrecks the tourboat, and suddenly everybody finds himself on a sinking ship, in piranha-infested waters. A raft is dropped from a rescue plane, but Lasky has to swim for it and is almost killed by piranhas in the process - and then Diller hijacks the raft for himself only, even leaves Kate behind - but Lasky sees to it that he is turned into piranha food as well. Soon, everybody else is saved, and somehow Kate and Lasky trick each other into sharing the loot.

Veteran actor Anthony Steffen plays the captain of the tourship.

 

Killer Fish is best described as a competent low budget crime/action movie. There are some great (miniature-effects-)scenes in there, like the explosion of the power plant early on, or the bursting of a dam when the hurricane strikes, but on a plot level, the film has very little new to offer and loses itself in a few too many unlikely plottwists. On top of that, the piranha attacks, which by all means are supposed to be the highlights of the film, are rather unspectacularly handled. Add to that the fact that none of the cast manage to really convince, and you are left with - well, a competent low budget movie, nothing you will hate watching, but nothing you will remember, either.
