If you want to know how not to do a remake, all you have to do is compare 1995's redux of #Piranha with it's 1978 Joe Dante-directed original. Stripping away all of the humor and playing it completely straight, this Piranha has neither the heart of the original nor the outlandish gore of the 2010 3D version that, at the very least, kept your attention even though that movie was awful, too. This 1995 version is almost a shot-for-shot remake, with #WiliamKatt (of "House") and Baywatch's #AlexandraPaul taking over for Bradford Dillman and Heather Menzies, Monte Markham stepping in for Dick Miller as the beach resort owner who refuses to shut down, a young #MilaKunis as the lead camper and Punky Brewster's #SoleilMoonFrye as the nice camp counselor. While the film saw fit to remove the humor, it replaced it will stock footage of the Piranha attacks from the original. Up until the finale in which it couldn't be avoided, every sequence with piranha in it comes from the 1978 version, giving it a real deja Vu feeling. Despite a notable change to one character's resolution, which I found to be a pretty dark and bold choice, everything else here is completely expendable. The characters are merely going through the motions on a road that was traveled much better by others before, the unending use of old footage from the original, and the ridiculous decision to make it a "serious" horror movie takes a huge bite out of the necessity of having this one out there at all.
