Piranha from AWE

I just learnt via Skræk og rædsel that Another World Entertainment is putting out Joe Dante's PIRANHA from 1978. Great news!

However, WHY NOT RELEASE IT ON A DOUBLE BILL WITH JAMES CAMERON'S SUPER SPLATTERY GORE FEST "PIRANHA PART 2: THE SPAWNING"!!!???

Now THAT'S a double bill that could've rocketed AWE into the world of über cool celeb video companies, LOL.

Here's a couple of memorable scenes:





However, despair not; PIRANHA 2 is out on a good, cheap and letterboxed DVD from the UK (get it from Play.com for around £5). Skip the reg. 1 DVD as it's fullscreen.



This one below (from MIA) is also from the UK and has a way cooler cover but unfortunately it's fullscreen.

  1. I really think the sequel is almost TO boring, but I will buy that widescreen-release you mentioned :)

  2. I'm sorry to say I've never actually watched the sequel but I thought those clips looked like good fun.

  3. I never liked PIRANHA.

    That's all.

    In other news - I'll soon be a master of danish! I have a danish guy at work that I'm teaching computer shit! And in return he is teaching me danish. I nicknamed him reptilicus.
