Ready to be shocked? Not only is this a movie that I personally haven’t seen, but I’m also secure enough in my horror cred to admit as much. I have seen and do love both the original, the remake, and the sequel to the remake, so I can’t imagine this sequel will be any different. Scream Factory are releasing Piranha 2 for the first time on Blu-ray on July 31st. With a new scan, and a couple of new extras, it’s sure to be a worthy summertime purchase. See the official press release below. Pre-order here.
SCREAM FACTORY PRESENTS
PIRANHA II: THE SPAWNING
IN ITS BLU-RAY DEBUT
ARRIVING JULY 31, 2018
Who’s for dinner?
Los Angeles, CA – It may seem like paradise, but just off shore a new brand of terror has been unleashed in Piranha II, James Cameron’s directorial debut. The razor-sharp sequel to Piranhacomes to Blu-ray for the first time July 31, 2017 from Scream Factory in a release that features a brand new 2K scan of the original camera negative and new interviews with cast and crew.
While investigating the mysterious death of a diver, scuba instructor Anne Kimbrough (Tricia O’Neil – Titanic) makes a horrific discovery: Piranha-like fish, with wings that enable them to fly, are responsible for the death. As the body count rises, Anne desperately tries to convince the manager of the Club Elysium resort to call off the annual fish fry on the beach, but he’s determined to give his guests the ultimate feeding frenzy. This exciting sequel to Joe Dante’s original PIRANHA also stars Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Pumpkinhead) and is the directorial debut of James Cameron (Avatar, The Terminator, Aliens).
