This is not your Rodger Corman’s Piranha, oh no, that one was tame compared to this and not in a good way either. This film is so gimmicky it isn’t even funny, though it does make the film comedic in placed, but just barely. The makers of this film just want to gross you out and that is just about all except to give young men and teens hard-ons.
Piranha stars Elisabeth Shue, Jerry O’Connell, Steven R. McQueen and is directed by Alexandre Aja, best known for The Hills Have Eyes. That in itself explains a lot about this film. We also have special appearances by Richard Dreyfuss as the fisherman Matt Boyd, I think just to try and tie it into the film of the same name from the ’70s. The 2 films share a similar plot, both on a resort town, both on a lake, though the earlier one was more a river, and both have people turned into bite sized pieces. That is where the similarities stop.
