Piranha 3D Blu-ray Review

9 January 2011
  • Summary: Dying to get wet. The wheel-of-remakes spins again, this time landing on Roger Corman's campy low-budget cult classic Piranha , and if there was ever a movie to target for a remake, this is it. It's not that the original was in any way bad -- it's actually quite good for what it is -- but there's plenty of room for excess and exploitation in an idea like this, and remaking smaller, less widely-known movies rather than going after the big boys of the world, like Psycho ,...

  • Conclusion: 'Piranha' is a totally shameless 'Jaws' rip-off and this is precisely why it succeeds -- it knows exactly what it is doing and doesn't try to hide any of it or take itself too seriously. It also helps that the writing is smart, the direction is slick, and the performances are well above average for low-budget schlock. Shout!

  • Conclusion: Like all the best exploitation flicks, Piranha is driven by a ruthless desire to entertain and, in this non-pretentious ambition, it succeeds magnificently.

Piranha 3D

Horror
8 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Het verhaal is redelijk simpel, tieners gaan feesten op een strand, door een aardschok komen er opeens miljoenen prehistorische piranha's vrij, en het feestje wordt een letterlijke orgie aan bloed en gore. Natuurlijk is er weer een held die iedereen moet gaan redden en wordt hij verliefd op een standaart type meisje.En er zijn veel lekkere wijven die als voer dienen voor de piranha's. Niet zo orgineel maar daarom niet minder leuk.

  • Excerpt: Door een aardbeving in een meer in Arizona ontstaat er een opening tussen het meer en het onderaardse meer, dat er precies onder ligt. Hierin hebben miljoenen jaren prehistorische piranha's geleefd. Laat het nou net tijd zijn voor Spring Break in het dichtstbijzijnde dorpje. Duizenden studenten zijnn er aanwezig om het te vieren. Jake Forester (Steven R. McQueen), een lokale jongen, krijgt van een pornoregisseur het aanbod om zijn gids te zijn.
