THEY BITE (1996)

Super silly rubber suited fish monsters terrorize a porn movie crew in this sort of remake of HORROR OF PARTY BEACH mixed with HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP.  This movie was way more entertaining than I expected it to be.  I had never seen any other Brett Piper movies so I was anticipating this one to be a typically horribly made low budget sort of affair.  It was surprisingly humorous and effective for what it was trying to be.  I particularly enjoyed the porn producer character who yells 90% of his lines at the top of his lungs.  Ron Jeremy is featured as part of the porn film crew.  Even though this was made in 1996 it has a very 80's flavor to the whole thing.  I can't say how any of Piper's later shot-on-video stuff is but this one is worth checking out if you like goofy ass monster movies.


  1. Oh my goodness, haha. Stevie, I don't where you keep finding these little diamonds in the rough, but I'm glad you do because they keep going on my queue of films to watch this October!

  2. Where did you get this movie? Was it a DVD or an old VHS? I only ask because people keep asking ME where they can get it and I have no idea.

    By the way, it may interest you to know (re: the "silly rubber suited fish monsters") that the goofy suit in the "making of INVASION OF THE FISH SUCKERS" sequence was supposed to be the real monster in the movie! When the producer saw how awful it looked I had to build the final suits in about three weeks.

  3. A friend of mine recently acquired a bunch of old VHS tapes and this was one of the better ones. There really should be a DVD of this thing. I think the average cult movie fan would really dig it. The monsters do look pretty awesome for something thrown together so quickly. I'll definitely be checking out more of your stuff.

    Thanks for the comments, Steve
