Date Shift for Corman’s Piranha DVD and Blu-ray and More

Sometimes a bun just needs a bit more time in the oven, ya know? Dread Central has learned today that Shout! Factory’s upcoming (and we’re sure to be stellar) DVD and Blu-ray release of the Roger Corman classic Piranha has been pushed back until August.

The film was originally supposed to hit stores on DVD in April, then Blu-ray a bit later, but now both packages will be hitting on the same day — August 3rd. The push will no doubt give Shout! Factory more time to shape the final form of bonus content, and that’s always a good thing. These cats know how to deliver quality!

Also hitting that very same day will be the DVD releases of Humanoids from Deep and the Up from the Depths and Demon of Paradise double feature. Stay tuned for more as we get it. In the interim dig on the vintage Piranha trailer below.

    Or maybe it has something to do with the remake’s release date having been pushed back as well? Just a thought.

    Seeing the trailer for the remake a few weeks ago at the cinema, I couldn’t stop myself making the “bdlbldblbldbbldblbl” Piranha noise. Love this movie.

    Meh, I don’t mind. The important thing is that Piranha will be hitting DVD again.
