James Cameron talks Piranha 2

Few things that have been put on this earth as as hideous and vile as James Cameron’s first outing, Piranha Part Two: The Spawning. That film has only two brag-worthy qualities, one of which is the fact that it manages to make its 90-minute running time feel like that of a three hour epic. Though that only goes for the running time. Everything else is exactly as shoddy as it actually is.

The other thing, which is much more commendable, is that it was the launch pad for James Cameron, which, having grown up in the 80’s, almost relieves it of any other responsibilities.

Anyway, I bring it up because I’ve touched on Piranha 2 before, and wanted to share a clip of Jim—I call him Jim—in a rare instance, talking about what happened (or what didn’t happen, it’s all very confusing), on that shoot.
