New Thing #243: Watch Piranha 3D

Piranha 3D, you had me at Richard Dreyfus.

That being said, this movie was tailor made for me. I really wanted to see it when it was in the theatre but never managed to. When I saw it used, on Bluray no less, for $6 today I knew I had to pick it up.

I love schlocky horror, and schlocky horror films involving things that eat you in the water are my favourite. I have a not-so-secret affinity for Deep Blue Sea and I’ll never tire of seeing those jaws float towards me at the end of the third Jaws. This is probably due to the fact that my parents exposed me to both Jaws and the original Piranha at a pretty young age. It’s also why I love sharks, yet am terrified to be in the water alone.

But this movie one ups every bad, H20 ridden movie I’ve ever seen. At times it borders on soft-core pornography while hitting “Snakes on a Plane” level ludicrousness at just about every other moment. 

Oh, and it has Elizabeth Shue in it. Need I say more?

I can not wait to see the sequel, which is of course titled: Piranha 3DD.
