Though its title suggests new heights of outlandish comic gore (and bust sizes), 'Piranha 3DD' feels awfully small in comparison with its predecessors: lamer jokes, lamer kills, lamer celebrity cameos. The 2010 remake of 'Piranha,' like the 1978 original, was a cheeky spoof of 'Jaws.'
Its new sequel, 'Piranha 3DD,' is more of a low-rent ripoff of 'Jaws 3D' where bloodthirsty aquatic critters worm their way into a water park to chow on the guests (and shove their mugs in the camera lens). '3DD' is less of a parody of an exploitation movie than a straight exploitation movie with a few comic scenes. The fish are still biting, but otherwise the material is a lot less sharp.
If there's one thing we as video game lovers like to see, it's beautiful girls and arrogant jocks being eaten alive by a swarm of giant, ugly, man-eating piranha. Thankfully the video game division of The Weinstein Company has whetted our appetite with the mobile game version of 'Piranha 3DD.' But does this bite-sized game sink or swim?
See the picture above? That's what a video game about killer piranha would look like if a company made one. Well, those killer fish dreams have come true, my friend. 'Piranha 3DD' the mobile game is now available for your Android and iOS device and it's chock full of blood, boobs and bonus points.
Danielle Panabaker is no stranger to horror. The actress has become something of a modern-day scream queen with roles in ‘The Crazies,’ ‘Mr. Brooks,’ and the remake of ‘Friday the 13th.’ This weekend Panabaker will continue this tradition in the bombastic, fish-balls-to-the-wall comedy horror ‘Piranha 3DD’.
The actress plays Maddy, a marine biology student who is racing against time to stop her stepfather Chet (David Koechner) from opening their water park before she can ensure that it is not infested with prehistoric water beasts. Oh yeah, and there's also a female extras with extra perky cleavage, hence the title.
We had the opportunity to sit down with Panabaker recently to talk about the many flavors of screams, the baby piranha (puppet) that she calls pet, and what she hopes to achieve in this next stage of her career.
David Koechner has made a name for himself as film and television’s unremitting comedic SOB with appearances as Todd Packer on ‘The Office,’ nightmare boss Dennis in ‘Final Destination 5’ and Champ Kind in ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’ and the upcoming ‘Anchorman 2.’
Adding to his master of hilarious jerkdom repertoire, Koechner dips into the killer fish infested waters of ‘Piranha 3DD’ this weekend as Chet, a man who is cutting all available safety corners in order to open his “adult-themed” Big Wet Water Park on time and well under budget.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the funny man recently (who in reality is just about as lovely and good-natured as you can imagine) about working in the murky realms of horror, reprising his role in ‘Anchorman 2,’ and taking a surprising turn as a lovable family man – on screen.
Dimension Films heard our cry for more goofy horror movies and are answering our prayers with 'Piranha 3DD.' It's got sexy women bouncing around and being ripped to shreds by crazy powerful and carnivorous fish. Let's not forget that Gary Busey is part of the movie, which somehow makes it sound even better.
John Gulager’s ‘Piranha 3DD’ promises hordes of razor-toothed creatures feasting on nubile bodies in a deadly water park. So obviously, the first official clip from the film gives us … David Hasselhoff on a Casio keyboard?
