Aja delivers all the blood, camp and boobs you could ever ask for

Summary: Films rarely deliver on the promises of their trailers. Even their synopses can indicate a promise of something the final film has a problem making truly happen. Some movies come close, others fail miserably, and others deliver a different experience entirely.
Summary: An underwater tremor unleashes thousands of hungry Piranha that have thought to have been extinct for millions of years. Bad timing, because it's Spring Break. Piranha was, what some people called, a rip off of Jaws. Another person wanting a piece of the pie.
Summary: I thought this movie was going to be just AWFUL. However I was mistaken, it was actually pretty good. The acting, as I would've expected was mediocre, but no one in the cast was destined to shine in this film. I also had a good time watching the film, I was really happy how the Piranhas looked.
Summary: Splatter flicks of the 1970s and 80s tend to have a real fun factor to them, as opposed to darker gore films like the 'Saw' franchise. Once in a while a group of filmmakers will attempt to homage those films, some succeeding and others not.
Summary: Let's face it, it's more fun to see a popcorn movie at the movies than one that's meant to be taken seriously. Not that I'm knocking more serious and socially relevant films, far from it, but the experience of watching a really fun movie with a crowd is like no other.
Summary: I like horror movies that happen along or in rivers. Not that there are many "Shock Waves" and "Empire of the Ants" are the only two that come to mind right now. I do not know why, something about the scenery maybe?
Summary: Even in the late 70's studios were trying to cash in on the "Jaws" phenomenon and to this date they are still doing it. This is a Roger Corman produced film and he never saw a genre that he didn't exploit.
Summary: Piranha has very good visual affects and is an all-round decent movie, the film is not going to win any oscars, but will keep you entertained throughout, while the stunning 3D effects will ensure you come back for more.
