Check Out the ‘Piranha 3D’ Footage That Was ‘Too Hot’ For Comic-Con

Yes, that’s right folks. The Piranha 3D footage considered too hot, too graphic, too gross for Comic-Con has shown up online — as these things often do. In case you didn’t know, Director Alexandre Aja was forced to rent a theater away from the Con in San Diego in order to share the footage with fans. I got a chance to see this footage and I can say from experience that it is, indeed, pretty graphic.

Not sure about the exact reasons for it not being able to be shown within the halls of Comic-Con, but I guess it makes a certain sense, especially if their was a chance children could be in the room. You don’t want your children watching any of this, believe me.

Or, my cynical self says it could just be a marketing stunt by the filmmakers. If it is, it’s a pretty good one. After all, we are talking about the film right now, aren’t we?

Anyway, enough talk, take a look at the footage after the jump. The complete Piranha 3D experience hits theaters on August 20th.

    I think the fact that they are not actively yanking these offline speaks to it being a publicity stunt and hey, it worked. The scene has got me interested in the flick and I was not planning on seeing it before this

    Good God, that really is gory, even by my standards. Of course I cannot wait to see it.
