I for one have been quite impressed with director Alexandre Aja’s work thus far and so am particularly excited about his newest horror offering ‘Piranha 3-D’. Based on the Joe Dante horror/comedy of the same name (without the 3-D) from 1978, this 3D fest should scare and entertain the masses. And not to mention the appearance of pornstar Riley Steele and the gorgeous Brit actrss Kelly Brook appearing in bikinis! And now, like here in the UK, the US release date has been pulled back a week and will now arrive in theatres on 20 August.
Dimension Films appear to have pushed it forward so it doesn’t clash with other genre release ‘The Last Exorcism’ which arrives a week later on 27 August.
“Lake Havasu, Arizona – when a tremor causes the lake’s floor to open, setting free scores of prehistoric piranhas… Theyre back! Every year the population of sleepy Lake Havasu explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for a single, wild weekend – the 4th of July, a riot of sun, drunken fun and sex-crazed mayhem. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers. Havasu sits in the crater formed by a prehistoric volcanic eruption, and when earth tremors tear open a crack in the lake floor, all hell breaks through. Piranhas – a million ravenous, razor-toothed monsters, unchanged since the dawn of time. Unstoppable killing machines acting blindly under one primeval impulse: to hunt down anything that moves and strip it to the raw, bleeding bone. In seconds.”
There’s quite the funky little cast on hand to fight these flesh eating little buggers including Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Eli Roth, Christopher Lloyd, Jessica Szhor, Kelly Brook (see below), Jerry O’Connell, Riley Steele (below), Richard Dreyfus and Ving Rhames.
