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.

ArthouseFW—Late Night celebrates the work of Joe Dante, one of Roger Corman’s most memorable collaborators and one who held tightly to Corman’s out-of-this-world sensibilities. Dante’s films bring fantasy and reality together in stories that are both human and monstrous, funny and terrifying, light and dark. Join the Lone Star Film Society and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth for a late-night series that is sure to keep you awake.
