Piranha 3D

Rated R, 88 mins
Horror, Thriller
Mayhem ensues after a seismic tremor propels thousands of huge, repulsive piranhas into a lake occupied by hordes of drunken college students on spring break. This moderately entertaining popcorn thriller recaptures the B-movie spirit of such vintage schlockmeisters as Samuel Z. Arkoff and Roger Corman (the latter of whom produced the original Piranha in 1978) even as it pays tribute to Jaws (Richard Dreyfuss reprises his character from the Spielberg film, and Elisabeth Shue takes over for Roy Scheider as the town sheriff). But there’s also a thick streak of Girls Gone Wild: practically every scene alternates between T&A and graphic, computer-generated bloodshed. Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes) directed; with Ving Rhames, Christopher Lloyd, and Eli Roth.

Piranha was so horrifying that I came home talking about it with my husband. There were a couple of parts in it that we found confusing, though. 1. The female sheriff at the beginning of the movie fell into the water and next time we saw her during the same scene - she ended up dry! Other than that, because I am a horror fan, piranha is a must, to go see! If you crave blood and guts like I do, you will get enough to last throughout the rest of the year. Also, thank you for scaring my husband because now he's afraid to get into a body of water; he's afraid to open a can of tuna, and he now lies in my arms in the hopes that I can save him from a PIRANHA!
