The most blissfully trashy and fun film of the year will be hitting home video to kick off the new year in January, and we’ve got the skinny on what you’ll be able to expect!

From the Press Release
On January 11th, 2011, the hilariously gory, sexy action thriller PIRANHA shows its teeth on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by acclaimed genre filmmaker Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) and starring Oscar® nominee Elisabeth Shue (Best Actress in a Leading Role, 1995, Leaving Las Vegas), Adam Scott (TV’s “Party Down”, Leap Year), Jerry O’Connell (TV’s “The Defenders”, Scream 2), Ving Rhames (Dawn of the Dead, Mission: Impossible series), Steven R. McQueen (TV’s “Vampire Diaries”), Jessica Szohr (TV’s “Gossip Girl”) and sizzling Playboy cover girl Kelly Brock (The Italian Job), and with cameos by Eli Roth (Hostel series) and Hollywood legends Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future series), PIRANHA sent critics and moviegoers into a frenzy of amusement this summer with its shocking mix of horror, humor and sex. Now action and horror fans can experience the movie The New York Times called “the future of cinema” at home with the latest in eye-popping, truly immersive high definition 3D home entertainment technology.

The PIRANHA Blu-ray and DVD include a swarm of killer bonus features, including deleted scenes, a filmmaker commentary, storyboard comparisons and extensive behind-the-scenes featurettes.

Featuring buckets of blood, gratuitous nudity and can’t miss cameos by Hollywood legends Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws) and Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future series), plus horror maestro Eli Roth (Hostel I and II), PIRANHA is destined to thrill every action, horror and thriller fan on land…or on water!

Synopsis
Every year the population of sleepy Lake Victoria explodes from 5,000 to 50,000 for Spring Break, a riot of sun and drunken fun. But this year, there’s something more to worry about than hangovers and complaints from local old timers; a new type of terror is about to be cut loose on Lake Victoria. After a sudden underwater tremor sets free scores of the prehistoric man-eating fish, an unlikely group of strangers must band together to stop themselves from becoming fish food for the area’s new razor-toothed residents.

PIRANHA was written by Peter Goldfinger (Sorority Row) & Josh Stolberg (Sorority Row). It was produced by Alexandre Aja (P2), Mark Canton (300, Letters to Juliet), Gregory Levasseur (Mirrors, P2) and Marc Toberoff (Bottle Shock, It’s Alive). Executive producers are Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, Alix Taylor, Louis G. Friedman and J. Todd Harris. It was distributed by Dimension Films and has a run time of approximately 89 minutes. It is rated R for sequences of strong bloody horror violence and gore, graphic nudity, sexual content, language and some drug use.

    Dread Central Assembles Ghost Hunters to Investigate the Winchester Mystery House

    Published

    on

    On Friday, February 2nd, Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built arrives in theaters. The film, directed by Michael and Peter Spierig and starring Helen Mirren, is based on actual events.

    While many movies claiming to be based on true stories are actually highly fictionalized, that’s not the case this time. The subject, Sarah Winchester was real; the location, a labyrinthine mansion, still stands. And tonight, we’re being given unprecedented access to “The House That Ghosts Built”. Our goal: To determine if the estate deserves its reputation as one of the most haunted locations in America.

    While the Winchester Mystery House, as it’s now known, sees visitors almost every day, we’re conducting our investigation after hours—at night. Not only does this opportunity afford us a more intimate experience, we’re being allowed into areas restricted to the general public. We’ve assembled a team of some of the country’s leading paranormal investigators and psychic mediums, who will attempt a variety of techniques in order to detect the supernatural entities long rumored to roam these halls.

    Tim Wood is a paranormal investigator and founder of the TV series In Search of the Paranormal which launched in 2006; he’ll be bringing his team members Kristen Manning, a medium who uses her drawing talents to tap into supernatural vibrations, and Patrick Langdon, an investigator who utilizes special cameras to detect paranormal remnants.

    Tim Meunier is the founder of American Paranormal Investigations as well as the founder of both the Sacramento Horror Film Festival and the bi-annual Sinister Creature Con. Michael B. Chochla is a medium and member of River City Paranormal and Michelle Goyette has been working as a professional spiritualist for over 5 years, specializing in connecting the living with loved ones who have passed over.

    The estate is so complex, a previously undocumented room was discovered as recently as 2016, so there’s truly no telling what awaits us within.

    We’ll be joined by an on-site historian and a camera crew who will document our entire visit. Whether we come away with answers to some of the Winchester Mystery House’s most enduring secrets remains to be seen, but we’ll be sharing the results of our investigation in the days leading up to the release of Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built. Stay tuned!

    About The Winchester Mystery House: “Since 1923 the story of Sarah Winchester and her incredibly peculiar house has fascinated more than 12 million people from around the world who have toured its lonely hallways, dark passages and ornate rooms. Come and be intrigued by this truly American tale with its combination of the beautiful and the bizarre, its narrative of heartbreak, tenacity and invention and its flourishes of the paranormal and spirits.”

    Here’s what you can expect on a Mansion Tour“Sarah Winchester was a true woman of independence, drive, and courage who lives on in legend as a grieving widow who continuously built (and built and built) onto her initially small, two-story farmhouse to appease the spirits of those killed by the guns manufactured by her husband’s firearms company.

     “Today you can tour through 110 of the 160 rooms of Sarah’s stately mansion, known around the world as the Winchester Mystery House, and see the bizarre attributes that give the mansion its name; a window built into the floor, stairs leading to ceilings, doors that open onto blank walls, a seeming obsession with the numeral “13,” cobweb motifs, etc.”
