Soooo I am coming out of my slack period in maintaining any semblance of regularity of posting to ask the following question:
Why in the FUCK is Piranha coming in 6th place on it's opening weekend, when it's major competition is Vampires Suck and LOTTERY TICKET?!?!
It's deja vu all over again, with the Weinstein curse in full effect. Just like with Grindhouse we are being given a treat of a movie that everyone is raving about, and is something that nobody has really been able to experience before: A fun, blood and tits filled movie that doesn't even make the attempt at being a serious film of any kind. It's something that most people have only experienced in a home video setting and even then it's the type of gonzo horror film that we haven't seen since the 80's era of Re-Animator and Humanoids From The Deep.
Everyone has been given this rave reviews. Rotten Tomatoes has it at a 81% fresh status as we speak, while Lottery Ticket is at 32% rotten and Vampires Suck is at an astonishly emberassing 3% rotten
Despite all of this, not nearly enough people are going to go see Piranha. WHY?!?! If you haven't seen it already please go see it, and bring someone with you. If you have already and enjoyed it, please go a second time if you can afford to do so. Because I really dont want the studios to see these box office numbers and give us another 3 years of PG-13 crap like Prom Night or The Messengers, or Shutter, or Mirrors or etc etc etc etc.
