A 'Piranha 3D' Sequel Is Spawning!

We’re all a bit baffled by the surprise success of Piranha 3D—Alexandre Aja’s three-dimensional rehash of Joe Dante’s 1978 schlocky creature flick—but with a $10 million opening weekend and a surprisingly generous critical reception, a sequel to the gloriously bloody horror comedy is already in the works.

“We are thrilled that audiences are not just loving Piranha 3D, but cheering for it,” producer Mark Canton said in a statement. “And it’s fantastic that so many critics are really getting the movie and recommending it. We can’t wait to get to work on the sequel.”

Suck it, Eat Pray Love.

In spite of my love of B-movies, I’ve yet to see this bad-on-purpose epic, but if all I’ve heard about its over-the-top gore (in 3D!) and gratuitous nudity (in 3D!) is true, I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. Get it? Sink my teeth? Comedy.

This film is just as you would expect it and a bit more. As much as I love gore and shock factors, I will admit even this film had my mouth gaped open at times. I was aware of director Alexandre Aja's previous work (I even wrote a review for the Daily Campus for his The Hills Have Eyes remake), but this time he took it to the next level. Yet, it was nice to see a bunch of seasoned actors in the film, including (SPOILER ALERT!) Richard Dreyfuss semi-reprising his Matt Hooper role from Jaws.
