Did anyone see this movie... was it good or bad. It bombed at the box office and despite this they are rolling out a second one already. Larry

it did not Bomb it was just not the best at the box office Bombed would be something like water world which lost the studio money. Usually if they are making a sequel of something like this it means the movie made a decent profit.
Studios like Horror movies because most of them can be made on the cheap side and even with a weak showing in the box office they make a profit.
I still honestly want to see this movie mostly because it has christopher loyd loved watching him act ever since the Amazing tales tv show.

The movie cost like 25 million to make plus marketing costs, then take out the theaters and what they keep, blah, blah, blah, blah...

The movie only grossed 10 million now its up to twelve I would guess it will end up around 30 million total... you have to make three times the budget in box office to break even... a movie like this might do very well on dvd or whatever. I'm sure it will make money but it didn't do the typical types of money that a horror movie does opening.

I was just wondering if the flick was any good... did anyone see it?

It would be awesome to do an underwater theme in a haunted house... that would just be awesome. My brain is turning right now... look out. Larry

Haven't seen this movie but I really enjoyed the original. Funny thing is before this movie came out I started buying taxidermy piranha. I am going to mold and cast them then put them into a water element where the water beneath the customers is frothing and bloody and the " rubber piranha" would be hooked to a track system and lung up and down. I also would have an actor fall into the water, surface out of view and release a bloodied skeleton up out of the water to appear he/she had been eaten.
