Default 'Piranha' - HIgh-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'Piranha' has just been posted. As Tom points out, even Steven Spielberg says this is the best of the Jaws rip-offs! This Blu-ray features remarkably strong video, nicely cleaned up audio, and plenty of extras. This is highly recommended!

when it's 15 bucks, it's mine, along w/ humanoids. not paying any more than that on these corman titles, which i consider a must own in my library.

hell, rock n roll high school was just the second blu-ray samantha bought, after alice in wonderland. she utterly, utterly loved death race 2000 (which, considering her tastes, is amazing), and she's looking forward to more corman classics!

I gotta pick this up sometime.

I've never seen it, but I've thought it looked awesome. I love Death Race 2000 and thought the special features were great and very informative, so it'd be great to pick up some more of these Roger Corman releases, as I haven't seen many.

Awesome review, Tom!

Amazon came early today, so I'm watching a double-feature tonight -- 'Piranha' followed by 'Escape from New York'!!

we have very little reason to be interested in them.

You have to be kidding me. I loved this crazy movie. This is one of those back-in-the day get up in your chair and say "eat those legs up fish" kind of movies. I had a feeling it would get excellent reviews because I remember the soundtrack a bit. It had that Jaws like haunt you down feel in the water. I have to have this. Awesome review Tom. I'm going to sit down with a bowl of Golden Grahams and have a ball wit this one. And can't wait until the 3D version hits the movies. Just a sick conversion from the review.

Damn, wish my Amazon order came early. Both Piranha and Humanoids will be here tomorrow. Nice double feature for tomorrow night.

"Piranha" & either "Humanoids" or "Escape from New York" would make an awesome double-feature! Enjoy!
