Adam Scott Talks Piranha 3D


“The bloodiest movie in film history.”

Adam Scott’s roots in horror take him back to Hellraiser: Bloodline. Of course, he’d later to go on to co-star in Step Brothers and the Starz series Party Down. But this summer, audiences will find him in Alex Aja’s Piranha 3D. Here’s what he had to tell USA Today about the film:

“This one will be really cool – Alexandre Aja, who directed it, is a pretty incredible guy. He directed High Tension a few years ago, which was a wonderful horror film that was really artful and really terrifying and disgusting. As far as horror films go, it was about as good as you can get. This’ll be a nice mix of a lot of humor in there — it doesn’t take itself very seriously – but also I think the trick will be you’ll be laughing because there’s a lot of comedy, but as you’re laughing, then you’ll be hit with horrible, disgusting violence. [Laughs] And from what I’ve heard, it’s the bloodiest movie in film history.”

He also adds: “There’s a massacre scene where all the piranhas attack a big party that’s happening in a lake, where they had a gas tanker truck that was filled with blood. On the side of the lake, it had a tube coming out of it, going underground and coming up at the bottom of the lake, and it was just pumping blood into the lake for this massacre scene. I think there actually is more blood spilled in this film than ever before. But it was some special biodegradable fake blood, because we were in a lake.”

The actor stars in Piranha 3D with Elisabeth Shue, Steven McQueen and Ving Rhames. The film opens on August 27.
