Netflix Bites Into Alex Aja’s ‘Piranha’

Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Mirrors director Alexandre Aja‘s insanely gory Piranha remake (originally released in 3-D) is now streaming on Netflix.

In the 2010 reboot of Joe Dante’s cult classic, “When an earthquake rips open the bottom of Lake Victoria, a bloodbath ensues as schools of carnivorous piranhas are released from their aquatic lair.

The cast included Elisabeth Shue, Adam Scott, Jerry O’Connell, Ving Rhames, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Lloyd, Jessica Szohr, Steven R. McQueen, Dina Meyer, Ricardo Chavira, and Kelly Brook.

I wrote in my review: “Delivering all sorts of bloody goodness, Piranha is Alex Aja’s best film since High Tension… It’s damn fun, and off the hook bloody. If anything, the spring break summer massacre sequence will go down in infamy as one of the most awesome and insane horror moments of all time.”

Unfortunately, the John Gulager-directed sequel, Piranha 3DD, isn’t available.
