Synopsis: “Story revolve around piranha making their way into swimming pools, pipes, and plumbing at a newly opened waterpark named Wilderness Waters. The race is on to save the town from these flesh-eating creatures” (Nusantara Edaran Filem).
Verdict: If you tried watching this film as a horror, comedy or both, you wouldn’t enjoy it one bit at all. Because fuck logic, fuck technicality, fuck physics and fuck intelligent humour – this is a trolling movie where not making sense at all is at its best. The NG scenes during the closing credits clearly shows that nobody involved actually took this production seriously at all. Piranha 3DD is one hell of a nonsensical don’t-give-a-fuck-what-the-viewers-may-think movie with soft gore and predictable scares. If you were ever a Baywatch fan, David Hasselhoff‘s self-parody on the film would be a very valuable entertainment for you.
Second opinion: “So stupid” (Iris Loong).
Malaysian censorship: I lost count on how many scenes with obvious cuts. Don’t watch it at local cinemas, you have been warned.
Rating: 1.5 / 5

Most epic scene: A piranha, that’s been hiding inside Shelby’s (Katrina Bowden) vagina, bites Josh’s (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) erected penis while they are having sex. Josh takes a small kitchen knife and chops off his entire manhood instead of finding a way to kill the piranha without making the huge sacrifice.
Most epic quote: “Josh chopped off his penis ’cause something came out of my vagina!”
