      Interesting! Now this should be 1 to see! A 3-D Horror film, Hope it's better than that Crappy Re-Make of "Night of the Living Dead" in 3-D! Now that was a bad film!

      I wonder how the Orginial director Joe Dante feels about this!?

      A side note on the "Orginial":

      It was also produced by Roger Corman, "Piranha" is a parody of the 1975 film Jaws!

        It seems more and more movies are turning to 3-D. I just like to watch a movie the old fashioned way without having to wear those friggin uncomfortable glasses.
