Usually I try to come up with a post title that sounds interesting, but this one needs no embellishment. Even Dread Central couldn’t polish this gem. What in the world is “Wolf-Man VS Piranha-Man: Howl of the Piranha”? Steve Goldenberg and Dorian Knight wrote and directed this crazy “two monsters fighting over a girl” experience, which has apparently won the PETA Award for Animal Weirdness. From the movie’s Facebook page:
Piranha Man Versus Wolf Man: Howl of the Piranha details the epic generations-long battle between two of natures most perfect killing machines! The rivalry between the fish-like Piranha Man and the canine Wolf Man is one of brutal murder, familial kidnappings, stalking, and incest! When the decades old fight begins to effect the life of investigative journalist Lexi Glass, she finds that sometimes you need to become the story in order to report the story. She discovers the battle of a lifetime along with the horrible secret of her family’s past! Piranha Man Versus Wolf Man: Howl of the Piranha, the inter-species battle you’ve been waiting for!
Four of the five sentences in that synopsis ended with an exclamation point, which is usually a bad sign, but it you’re expecting another cheesy low-budget horror movie that takes itself way too seriously, watch the trailer. Cheese? Yep. Budget? Pretty low (I think I have the same werewolf gloves). But if you’re not grinning like an eight-year-old in a comic store by the end, I don’t even know who you are anymore.
It premieres at Facets in Chicago on May 15th. Doors are at 11:30 PM and seats are $5.00. How do I know this? Because I read the poster!
