From the illustrious House of Special Features, Piranha starts out with an audio commentary from co-producer/director Alexandre Aja and co-producers Grégory Levasseur and Alix Taylor. Their words aren’t entirely scene-specific (or even movie-specific in some cases), but anyone who enjoys the movie should enjoy giving it a listen. Next up are a few deleted scenes (including a few moments that were seen only in the film’s trailers); a two-hour-plus documentary entitled “Don't Scream, Just Swim: Behind-the-Scenes of Piranha 3D,” which dives into almost every aspect of the campy flick; several deleted storyboard sequences; and several trailers and TV spots for the film (which include even more moments not seen in the finished product — in classic exploitation fashion, director Aja deliberately shot some footage solely to tease audiences), as well as trailers for other Sony releases.
In short, Piranha is a wonderful guilty pleasure: an homage to the gory exploitation flicks of yesteryear and a fairly-suitable obeisance to its source material (as well as the source material’s source material). If you have a strong stomach, have a taste for campy acting and human flesh, you owe it to yourself (and Jerry O’Connell) to see it.
I just wonder how many “imitations with limitations” this one will spawn.
