If you missed John Gulager’s Piranha 3DD in theatres and on VOD, we have your back as the film will soon be making its way home to DVD and Blu-ray, and we have all the details below.
I myself am waiting for the home video release and unfortunately I’ve heard that the film is a bit of a disappointment, but who knows, we shall just have to judge for ourselves.
From the Press Release:
“Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films announced today the 3D Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD release of the campy comedy-horror film, PIRANHA 3DD. A sequel to Piranha 3D – the 2010 reboot of the fan-favorite franchise from the ‘70s, PIRANHA 3DD stars Danielle Panabaker (The Crazies, Friday the13th), Katrina Bowden (TV’s “30 Rock”), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Get Smart), David Hasselhoff (TV’s “Baywatch,” “Knight Rider”), Christopher Lloyd (Piranha 3D, Back to the Future), and Gary Busey (Lethal Weapon,The Buddy Holly Story). Directed by John Gulager (Feast) and written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (the writing team behind four Saw titles), PIRANHA 3DD heads to retail on September 4, 2012 for an SRP of $29.99 for the 3D Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and $24.98 for the standard definition DVD.
PIRANHA 3DD incorporates the classic elements of the teen horror/exploitation movies of the1970s, packed with ferocious flesh-eaters, scantily-clad young victims, and bizarre and exciting twists and turns. Whereas Piranha 3D took place on a lake, the 2012 sequel is set at a water park, complete with water slides and a lazy river – the perfect places for piranha mayhem! Back for more outrageous fun, Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert.
After the terror unleashed on Lake Victoria in Piranha 3D, the prehistoric school of blood thirsty piranhas are back and this time, no one is safe from the flesh-eating fish as they sink their razor-sharp teeth into the visitors of summer’s best attraction, The Big Wet Water Park. Now with double the action, double the horror, and double the D’s, PIRANHA 3DD stars Danielle Panabaker, Matt Bush, David Koechner, Chris Zylka, Katrina Bowden, Gary Busey, Christopher Lloyd, and David Hasselhoff.
A fun, amusing ride for the audience, the PIRANHA 3DD Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD special features include an Audio Commentary with the filmmakers; “The Story Behind the DD”; “The Hofftastic World of David Hasselhoff”; “Busey’s Bloopers”; “Wet and Wild with David Koechner”; Deleted Scenes; and “A Lesson with John McEnroe – A Dimension Short Film.”
