Topic: Joe Dante's Piranha
I'm only 10 minutes in but I forgot how damn good this movie is. Always been a big Dante fan, and was about to watch Jaws but Piranha was calling to me. Had only seen it one time good while back and had it stashed off to the side in my stack of dvds I can't fit in my shelf. The first scene is fucking great. The movie has already referenced Creature from the Black Lagoon and Jaws and has a nice little atmosphere going. I should have known that the maker of The Howling, The Burbs, and Gremlins would not disappoint.
Any big Dante fans on this site? What is your favorite Dante film?
Haha and wow, this scene with the old man on the river and the cheesy slow score in the background is fucking perfect.
"Got the River. It wakes me up in the morning. Gives me a bath, does my laudry, gives my dinner, puts me to sleep real gentle. Got my river." Haha.
Gotta love the Horror Comedy from Joe Dante.
