Piranha

Piranha (1978) was another movie I came to via the afternoon movie.

Created in the wake of Jaws, Piranha is a a terrific Roger Corman b-movie directed by Joe Dante where a secret government project-Piranha! imagine that- is accidentally released from a testing facility into the local river system, a river system that involves a summer camp and a resort.

It's one of those eco-horror films like Barracuda, or the waiting to be watched classics Orca, Tentacles, Tintorea, and... oh, Jaws.  Yep, I haven't seen that in years, so that's on my list as well.
