Piranha 3D

PhotobucketSilly horror film about an exceptionally vicious group of piranhas that attack spring breakers at Lake Victoria.  Combining blatant 80s-style nudity with the movie Jaws, this action thriller fails to inspire fear as it goes for the laughs at every turn.  As a parody, there are indeed some funny bits, but it’s too self-aware of its own campiness.  The cynicism gets a little tiresome after awhile.  From the actors, there are no performances, just random attractive 20-somethings being devoured for 90 minutes.  As a result, there is no sympathy for the personality-free victims.  The cartoonish violence reaches an apex when a girl’s face gets ripped off as her hair gets caught in the propeller of a motorboat. A better title would have been When Animals Attack Girls Gone Wild.  Remake of the original 1978 film Piranha.

  1. I got a few chuckles, but wanted so much more. Not enough 3-d effects. What I thought was hilarious, was, how do two women swim naked in an underwater scene for 10minutes, without breathing.

  2. “When Animals Attack Girls Gone Wild”. LOL.
