Okay, I admit it. I love cheesy horror/monster/scifi movies with a geology subtheme. How many of you remember "Monolith Monsters"?
The new one I've been following is "Piranha 3D" which is due to be released August 20. It was filmed at Arizona's Lake Havasu (cleverly renamed Lake Victoria in the film). The plot is that an earthquake unleashes hordes of giant prehistoric piranha from their ancient habitat under the lake. During spring break. Amidst hundreds of drunk teens.
The trailer for the movie is now out and you can get a glimpse of what these 2 million-year-old critters look and act like. It ain't pretty.
