Piranha (1978)

blu-ray.com
7 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Joe Dante's Piranha is the perfect film to see very late at night. The acting is a bit over the top at times, but the atmosphere throughout the film is quite good. The soundtrack by the great Pino Donaggio is also most appropriate for a film of this caliber. As it is always the case with Carlotta Films' Blu-ray releases, the technical presentation does not disappoint. RECOMMENDED. Did you find this review helpful?

Piranha 3D (2010)

blu-ray.com
9 January 2011
  • Conclusion: There's nothing fishy about this one. Piranha is a deviously fun little remake that's thematically vacuous and emotionally vacant, but it's hard to fault a movie with no class when it has so much fun being classless. Piranha is all about grossing out its audience and throwing in plenty of naked females along the way. It's a teenage boy's dream come true and a parent's worst nightmare.

  • 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!

Piranha (1978)

1 August 2010
  • Conclusion: It's not Jaws , but Piranha is a perfectly good knockoff that plays as equal parts serious Horror movie, parody, and campy cult classic. Director Joe Dante's picture is probably the pinnacle of the Roger Corman catalogue; that's not really saying a whole lot, but his insistence on staying away from the Corman staples -- excess gore and nudity -- pays off in a big way.

  • 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.
