Piranha (Joe Dante, 1978) Joe Dante’s breakout film, Piranha, details the horror of mutant man-eating piranhas determined to ruin a beautiful summer by the lake. Produced by Roger Corman and written by John Sayles, the “best of the Jawsrip-offs” according to Steven Spielberg is Joe Dante’s hilariously gory contribution to B-movies in a time when the genre was elevating from drive-in fodder to box office blockbuster.

The Howling (Joe Dante, 1981) TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace) brashly interjects herself in the middle of a search for a serial killer, but in the process finds something much more sinister in Joe Dante’s werewolf thriller The Howling. Adapted by John Sayles for the screen from a novel by Gary Brandner, this continuation of Dante’s interest in the sinister, self-reflexive, and seedy is as amusing as it is disturbing.   ____________________________
