My only regret is that I waited this long!!
PIRANHA was produced by Roger Corman and directed by Joe Dante, so you have some awesome genre vets at the helm of this film. PIRANHA is one of those films that everybody knows about, but is very surprising when it comes to how many people have actually seen it. If you haven't seen this film, please, do yourself a favor and watch it soon! A new special edition DVD just came out today, so there is no excuse for not watching this now!
Here is the basic plot of the film from imdb.com:
When flesh-eating piranhas are accidental released into a summer resort's rivers, the guests become their next meal.
Ha, short synopsis, but really, it says it all! This isn't a movie that makes you think, it just tries to entertain you for 94 minutes, and in that it succeeds greatly!
One thing I was really surprised about was the amount of blood and gore in this film. For a film that came out in the late 70's, it was much more graphic than one would expect based on other films released in that same era.
A great thing about this film is there were no real slow parts....it was entertaining all the way through. If you are a fan of JAWS, then you will love PIRANHA. In fact...dare I say it....I might have enjoyed this film even more than JAWS! Is that possible? Have I gone insane? Have you seen PIRANHA...what do you think?
