He directed "Piranha II" which shows no trace of any talent or even
intelligence (much unlike the original), a job he got in the time-honored
fashion of doing grunt work on other Corman projects.  And "The Terminator"
didn't quite explode; at the time it initially seemed like a dim-witted
B-movie and getting people to go see it was almost exactly like today
trying to convince somebody that the new Jean-Claude Van Damme movie is
great.  Word of mouth eventually got it going.  But after just watching his
"Dark Angel" I'm not sure whether he's reverting to "Piranha II" days.
