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.
