Sunday Bloody Sunday: ‘Water Park Massacre’ From ‘Piranha’ (1978)

Woo hoo!  Summertime is here and what better way to beat the heat than by going to your local beach or water park to relax and unwind.  Maybe even go old school and get in an inner tube and float around the refreshing water.  Oh – what’s that nibbling at your toes?  Probably just some bloodthirsty piranha that want to eat you.  Nothing to worry about.

On this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I am going back to 1978 for director Joe Dante’s highly enjoyable Jaws parody about killer piranha fish aptly called: Piranha.  And one of the best scenes, that was ramped up to a great gory glorious spectacle in Alexandre Aja’s 2010 remake, is the water park scene where no one is safe.  Adults, kids, and even sand castles.  You know it’s bad news when sand castles are being destroyed amidst the chaos of flesh-chomping piranha.  Watch the clip below and enjoy!
