As a man there aren’t too many things in the movie world that excite me more than boobs and gore! So when a movie comes around that has both, and in mass quanTITIES, I have to go see it. Enemy and I checked out Piranha in 3D last weekend and were pleasantly surprised at how much we both enjoyed it. I didn’t want to do a whole review, but it is worth seeing from an entertainment standpoint. There was plenty of nudity (OMG Kelly Brook looked fantastic), and the gore level was way above what we expected based on the trailer and the tameness of recent Hollywood horror films. Some of the deaths were just plain gruesome! The cast includes a very hot looking Elizabeth Shue, Ving Rhames, Adam Scott, Jerry O’Connell and Christopher Lloyd.

Dr. Paul Dean (Robert Glaudini) develops a leech-like parasite that grows to large portions after it consumes the blood of its host.

He is pursued by “Wolf” (James Davidson) the “merchant” employed by the government to retrieve the last of the parasites. Paul carries one of the last parasites in a canister and the other inside of his stomach. He seeks refuge in small desert town populated by scavengers who constantly threaten his work. While most of the scavengers seek to rob him blind one woman Patrica Wells (Demi Moore) finds an interest in Paul and helps him to destroy the parasites before they multiply and devour the Earth’s remaining population. Written by Matthew Patay and directed by Charles Band.
