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.
