Piranha 3DD – All the Blu-ray info you need!

With its VOD release having come and gone it is now time for the Blu-ray release and it’s about damn time!

Anchor Bay is handling the details and we looking for this one to hit shelves on Sept. 4th and Anchor Bay is giving it the royal treatment.

Here is what the press release reveals:

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 (TVs 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.
Sporting that crazy ass cast and with Gulager behind the camera, this should be one awesome ride and I for one can’t wait to find out.
