“Piranha 3D” (2010)

Not even attempting to take itself even the teensiest bit seriously, this grotesquely over-the-top, deviously entertaining homage to B-movie creature films knows exactly what it is, makes no apologies for it, and revels the hell out of it. Filled to the brim with so much cheesy gore, creative kills, and some fantastically entertaining performances by actors who are clearly having the time of their lives, this film understands that even if you’re going with a trashy premise like this, you still need well executed tension, and an understanding of story structure and character development. Brainless popcorn fun, without sacrificing intelligence and good moviemaking, Piranha 3D is probably the best Jaws knockoff we will ever get.
