Anchor Bay will be bringing John Gulager‘s Piranha 3DD to Blu-Ray in September. The film stars Ving Rhames, David Hasselhoff, Katrina Bowden and Danielle Panabaker.
When Alexandre Aja released the rehashed Piranha 3D a few years ago, most were surprised by the film’s overall quality in terms of sheer violence and lots and lots of gracious nudity. It wasn’t an Oscar winner, but it was an enjoyable ride that fit the 3D gimmick that was making a splash in the theatrical market.
A sequel was almost a sure-thing at this point, yet it got channeled through various problems and ended up barely making a splash in theaters. I think it ended up getting released on 20 or so screens. The quality this time around is much sleazier, with equal amounts of violence and boobs.
Our very own Kristal Cooper had this to say about John Gulager‘s attempted sequel:
This brainless and soulless throwback to exploitation cinema occasionally entertains but mostly just makes you root for carnivorous fish to do away with everyone involved.
Anchor Bay will be bringing it to Blu-Ray in a 3D Blu-Ray/2D Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack, with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and a high definition 1080p video transfer. The following bonus content has been confirmed:
- Commentary with the filmmakers
- Behind-the-scenes featurettes
- Busey’s Bloopers
- Short film: A Lesson with John McEnroe
- Deleted scenes
