Move over Sharktopus - here's this year's greatest monster mashup. It's the tiny, toothy Chihuanha - half-piranha, half-chihuahua, all demon! Now the filmmaker has released more awesome concept art. Also the beast's weakness has been revealed: Cheese.
Last year, we showed you an FX demo of the evil creature. Now we've got a plot synopsis and some hilariously awesome storyboards. This lovely beast arrives on your DVD player this year.
Undead Backbrain offers a few chunks from the filmmaker's synopses:
When a curio-collecting Professor returns from South America with a mysterious Piranha idol, it casts an ominous curse on his innocent Chihuahua "Lulu Bell", and impregnates her with a litter of amphibious, mutant Chihuahua-Piranhas. Realizing his grave mistake, the Professor disposes of the idol and pups in a nearby mountain lake, but Lulu's monstrous spawn soon return to repay the gesture…[an] eccentric team unites to survive and destroy the vicious rat-pack with available firepower, their bare hands and the most lethal of all processed cheese products!
