And when the little girl in this cheerfully macabre short film accidentally ends up with murderous piranha instead of a goldfish, things get bloody very quickly.
Watching this Brazilian girl fishing piranhas barefoot made me cringe. Watching the water boil when the piranhas devour a piece of raw meat she is holding inches away from them made me cringe a bit more. But watching her doing it with such ease is what impresses me the most.
Yes, it sounds like the name of an awful horror knockoff (this one, to be exact), but a 22-pound beast known as Megapiranha paranensis once roamed the water 10 million years ago, and its bite was truly something to fear.
In Piranha 3DD — the sequel to 2010's "nubile swimmers getting eaten underwater" flick Piranha 3D — a sleazy water park monitored by stripper lifeguards and an unapologetically ineffectual David Hasselhoff is invaded by hungry fish. io9 had a quick chat with comedian David Koechner about playing P3DD's villainous…
UAV's are old hat nowadays—they've been overhead for nearly a decade. The next frontier in unmanned vehicles isn't in the air. It's on the waves. The Piranha Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) could revolutionize ocean-based military operations drones have done for the skies.
Piranha have a well-earned reputation for being able and willing to eat just about anything in their path. One of the few exceptions is the Arapaima, a six-foot long, 300-pound Amazonian predator with bony scales capable of withstanding the toothy onslaught. Researchers are now working to adapt the Arapaima's defenses…
Not only these nasty little fish are vicious, but scientists have discovered that those bloody piranhas can talk to each other. They use three sounds, each of them meaning a different thing.
The summer of 2010 was a bit underwhelming as far as movies went — but summer 2011's looking like the craziest of them all, with the densest concentration of nerd-candy ever. At least, Jon Favreau is calling it a "bloodbath."
Piranha 3D has only been in theaters for one weekend, but that's not stopping the studio from delivering even more bloody bikini-clad fish carnage. Piranha 3D - The Sequel is already being planned by Dimension Films. But where?
Piranha 3D might not have made huge waves at the box office, but maybe if the networks were bold enough to run these smutty ads, it would have done better. Check out the promo that was too hot for TV.
3D movies! They've been around, in one form or another, almost as long as cinema itself. But for every prestige film like Avatar that pushes the medium to new heights, there are a dozen Piranha 3Ds. Thank god.
With the 3D remake of 1978 cult flick Piranha coming out today, it's time to look back at the Roger Corman-produced original. Written by acclaimed indie director John Sayles, Piranha is a weird mix of toothy fish and lefty politics.
Alexandre Aja's Piranha 3-D comes out today, but he's already planning his next project: the roguish Space Pirate Cobra. A precursor of Han Solo and Mal Reynolds, the anime character became huge in Europe, but now he's coming for us.
For your consideration: We nominate Piranha 3D in the "best penis being gobbled up and spit out in 3D" Oscar category. Here is Piranha 3D's plea to the Academy for some nominations.

When it comes to multitools, you can never have enough functions and the Pocket Tool X Piranha really takes that thought to heart. I can't even figure out half the things it's supposed to do. Can you?
There's nothing like seeing Richard Dreyfuss playing around with deadly fish yet again — but this time instead of one shark, it's a school of prehistoric piranha, hungry for bikini-clad flesh. Check out some new bloody, watery Piranha set pics.
