When I first heard that Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes, Haute Tension) was writing and directing a remake of the classic 70’s Joe Dante film Piranha, I thought “Hmmm. This could be a good thing.” Then I read that he was doing it in 3D and I thought “Dang! I thought this could be a good thing; guess I was wrong.”
The remake, cleverly titled Piranha 3D, is set in the fictional location of Lake Victoria during spring break (think Lake Havasu), and after a underwater earthquake releases a prehistoric flesh-eating fish, “an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.” Sherriff Julie Forester must risk all that she loves and knows to destroy the piranha “save the lake and her family from totally being devoured.”
Piranha 3D stars Elizabeth Shue as Sherriff Julie Forester, along with Steve R. McQueen as her husband (ex?) Jake Forester. Joining them in their battle against the aquatic nightmare are Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Jerry O’Connell (Obsessed), Richard Dreyfuss (who is used to battling monsters in the water) Ving Rhames (The Tournament), Kelly Brook (Three) and “basterd” Eli Roth whose IMDB credit is listed as “Wet t-shirt contest emcee”.
We have some new pictures that have been released (thanks to Dread Central, where you can find more) and the ones you will see below are SFW and SFYS (Safe For Your Stomach). However, I would be remiss if I didn’t give you a link to some super-gory pics, and people, I’m mean SUPER GORY! I’m going to warn you now, if you are easily offended or disgusted by over-the-top blood and gore then by all means DO NOT CLICK ON THE FINAL THREE PICS OR PAGE 2!
