Movie of the Day – Piranha 3DD
October 25, 2012 4 Comments
Ah….nothing like shameless violence, boobs and gore to warm the heart of any horror fan. Now I am sure that everyone went and saw Piranha 3D, cause it was in 3D and promised a rollicking time of violence and boobs. That is the prime target for any red-blooded male. Shit, it got me to go, mainly cause I like both of those things and also because it seemed like a high production version of all those crappy, but wonderful, Roger Corman creature features and Sci-Fi Originals. The original was fun and sure as hell, I saw this sequel that aptly named itself Piranha 3DD. Get it? DD. As in DD BOOBS! Who says Hollywood is not creative.
After the terror unleashed on Lake Victoria in Piranha 3D, the pre-historic school of blood thirsty piranhas are back. This time, no one is safe from the flesh eating fish as they sink their razor sharp teeth into the visitors of summer’s best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert with survivor Paul Scheer and a partially devoured Ving Rhames back for more fish frenzy. David Hasselhoff trades in the sandy beaches of “Baywatch” to be a celebrity lifeguard at the racy water park. — (C) Weinstein
Geez, what to talk about in this movie. Should I cover the acting or lack thereof? Maybe I could talk about the story line that was very reminiscent of Jaws 3D where Jaws infiltrates a water park and kills everyone? How about the cinematography that is on the level of a Girls Gone Wild video? Nah, that would mean I have to expend a lot of energy and time in typing out talking points for those items. No, instead I will just gloss over them and get to the meat of the movie, which could be taken multiple ways.
The campy and unbridled nature of the movie is the real winner. I am not wanting depth or some semblance of acting to get me through this movie. I want to see ridiculous death scenes, mass chaos, some nudity cause of the title of the movie, and cheesiness pouring out of every cell of film. Oh I got that and more, which definitely made me enjoy this campy horror movie. It’s the perfect filler, like fast food is to people. Sure it’s bad for you and in reality you know better than to want this, but fuck is it satisfying on the most base level out there.
Filled with cameos, boobs, blood, frights and grotesque scenes, it is the perfect popcorn movie. You don’t have to think…at all really during this movie. There is just a ton of a creature kills which is fantastic and makes the first movie look tame. The nudity is plentiful, so that covers the male demographic and the movie also have a comedic element to it that is more referential than anything else. Don’t expect anything deep, just gore, horror and nudity. The perfect combination!
