BEVERLY HILLS, CA – 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 the 13th), 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).

PIRANHA 3DD incorporates the classic elements of the teen horror/exploitation movies of the 1970s, packed with ferocious flesheaters, 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 bloodthirsty 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.” Note: Special features are subject to change.
