The Asylum has made a batch of images available from their latest mockbuster creature-feature, MEGAPIRANHA; you can see some examples past the jump. The company’s low-budget response to Dimension’s PIRANHA 3D is currently slated to debut on DVD April 27—which would have tied in with the big-screen flick’s theatrical debut, but that has now been shifted to August 27, so we’ll see if The Asylum follows suit.In any case, MEGAPIRANHA was written and directed by Eric Forsberg, whose previous credits include ALIEN ABDUCTION, NIGHT OF THE DEAD and the script for SNAKES ON A TRAIN. The cast is headed by former teen pop star Tiffany (continuing the trend begun by her old rival Debbie Gibson’s toplining turn in The Asylum’s MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS) and BRADY BUNCH-er Barry Williams, playing a scientist and a CIA honcho taking on mutant piranha that have left their Amazonian home to threaten Florida. The DVD will present the movie in widescreen with 5.1 Surround Sound and a making-of featurette. For more on MEGAPIRANHA, including additional pics, check out the Asylum site here.
