Much better than the remake Piranha 3D. Great classic horror flick. One of my few 5 star recommendations.

Like many films of this type, it's mostly people running around and screaming. Gore is minimal. The initial scene with the couple swimming is nice and creepy. A few of the things in the lab were pretty cool. Otherwise, I'm as underwhelmed with this film now as I was when I saw it in 1982.
