John Gulager wedges his tongue firmly in cheek to direct the bloodthirsty comedy sequel Piranha 3DD, based on a script by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton.

It has been a year since the events of Piranha 3D, in which a school of prehistoric fish with razor-sharp teeth was unleashed into Lake Victoria, Arizona, by an earthquake.

The townsfolk are starting to recover from the incident, unaware that the voracious piranhas are still at large in the water system.

Eventually, the predators swim through the plumbing and emerge into swimming pools, where unsuspecting residents are fresh meat.

Deputy Fallon (Ving Rhames) struggles to maintain control of the nightmarish situation, and when the fish escape into a massive water park called Big Wet run by Maddy (Danielle Panabaker) and her father, the screams reach a deafening volume.

Danielle Panabaker and Christopher Lloyd star in the film, while David Hasselhoff co-stars in a role which pokes fun at Baywatch.

Piranha 3DD is showing at the Odeon Kettering today at 2.30pm, 4.50pm, 7.10pm and 9.20pm.
