Joe Dante's 'Piranha' gets the Blu-ray treatment from Second Sight

After the, shall we say, interesting movie that was Piranha 3DD it's great to see that Second Sight Films are releasing Joe Dante's 1978 schlocker Piranha on to Blu-ray for the first time in the UK. It will be released on January 28th and comes with a swarm of special features. The film is rated 15 and the disc will be Region B.

Killer fish are the order of the day in Joe Dante’s original cult classic Piranha, which
comes to Blu-ray for the first time from Second Sight Films.

From the director of The Howling and Gremlins and starring Bradford Dillman (Sudden 
Impact), Heather Menzies (Logan’s Run), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body 
Snatchers), Keenan Wynn (Once Upon a Time in the West), Barbara Steele (The Pit 
and The Pendulum) and Dick Miller (The Terminator), Piranha makes its Blu-ray debut 
complete with some outstanding bonus features on 28 January 2013.

When two teen hikers disappear around Lost River Lake, private detective Maggie 
McKeown teams up with the local drunk to search for clues. Their investigation takes 
them to a secret military base where they inadvertently let loose an experimental strain 
of mutant piranha. Now the guests at every resort downriver are on the menu.

Produced by legendary B-movie master Roger Corman, and screen-written by the 
brilliant John Sayles, Piranha is a tasty 70s gorefest classic to get your teeth into.

Bonus features include:

• Audio Commentary with Joe Dante and producer Jon Davison
• Behind the Scenes
• Making of
• Outtakes
• Stills Gallery
• Radio and TV Spots
• Includes English subtitles for hard of hearing
