Pirhana II devours everything in its path

Before Solaris or Titanic or even The Terminator a young James Cameron lent his hand to a little piece of cinema known as Pirhana II. Sure, he wasn’t the only person who contributed to the film, but the directorial debut of Mr. Cameron will forever be the legacy of the film finally coming to DVD from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.

Club Elysium may seem like paradise; but just offshore, a new breed of terror has been unleashed, and no one is safe from its savage, insatiable hunger. In the tradition of Jurassic Park and Anaconda comes a razor-sharp tale of mutant monsters from the deep.

The cult classic will likely look and sound better than their dated VHS counterparts with a fullscreen presentation, but not surprisingly the low budget film has no promotional features to fill out the disc save for a theatrical trailer.

So clear a place on the shelf next to “Aliens” and “True Lies” to complete the Cameron Collection on January 28th.
