Ebay Find Of The Week: Eli Roth Torso Prop From ‘Piranha 3D’ (2010)

2010’s Piranha 3D had a lot of things:  Boobs.  Boobs.  Boobs.  Sorry, I got sidetracked on the boobs from the movie.  Of course there were other things going on besides real and fake breasts, and one of those things was the exceptional death of director Eli Roth (who was playing a wet T-shirt contest MC) by speedboat:

Tremendous.  So imagine my surprise when I was browsing around Ebay today and actually found someone selling an Eli Roth torso prop from the movie that was supposedly used in that scene.  Yes, it’s my duty to inform some of you out there in Movieland that Eli’s real head did not actually explode on impact from the boat.  They used a prop, and below is a pic of it and what the seller is offering on Ebay.


Sweet Jesus, that’s pretty creepy.  Good job on the chest hair though as it seems pretty accurate compared to the real Eli Roth.  Unfortunately if you want this rare prop, it’s going to cost you at least $1000.  But the seller is accepting offers, so that’s always a plus.  Head on over to the listing HERE and take a look at more pics and a better description of what this actually is.  There is no COA proof, but if you look at it – how the hell could it not not be real?  Unless someone just has a strange infatuation with Eli Roth and likes making lifelike props of him.  It could happen.

Sunday Bloody Sunday: Lake Victoria Bloodbath From ‘Piranha 3D’ (2010)

Few scenes make me shed a tear in a good way like the almost 10 minute long Lake Victoria bloodbath opus from 2010’s Piranha 3D.  It’s mind-blowing.  It’s glorious.  It’s got a girl getting her face ripped off after getting her hair tangled in a boat propeller.  If you’ve seen it, then you know why it I’m so giddy and why I have to spotlight it on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday.

It’s just….so….beautiful.  Sorry, I told myself I wouldn’t cry.  Take it in horror fans, because it might be a while before you see anything like that again.  For me, everything was perfect about this movie and what it tried to accomplish, but that scene right there took it to a whole other level.  So many great moments just in those 8 minutes alone, but I have to give the edge to propeller head girl for my favorite.  The Eli Roth head smash comes in a close second.  Thank you Piranha 3D.
