An average movie
" "What about the goddamn piranhas?!" "They're eating the guests, sir." Directed by Joe Dante Written by Richard Robinson and John Sayles Music by Pino Donaggio Cinematography by Jamie Anderson Editing by Joe Dante and Mark Goldblatt"
"Piranha (Joe Dante, 1978)"
"I was looking forward to a good b-movie cult classic but it was actually just sadly bad with only a little bit of that fun that can come from a movie like this."
"Don't go swimming in the water! A silly, tasty, stupid human? Yum yum yum! Don't mind if I do! We're hungry piranhas! And piranhas love silly, tasty, stupid humans!"
"GUILTY PLEASURE MOVIE! Review coming soon... "
When flesh-eating piranhas are accidentally released into a summer resort's rivers, the guests become their next meal.As it's a creature feature, I didn't expect much. What I got was a mixed bag. Some elements were surprisingly brilliant, like the relationship between the daughter and the camp counsellor, and the plan to distract the guard – which, in a sense, was ahead of its time. But there were also moments that were just plain unbearable, like the actual execution of said plan.Plus, this movie came out in the wake of Jaws and the influence is undeniable, but the movie itself makes it clear that it's aware of this, even throwing in a Jaws arcade game at the beginning.
My rating: 45%
