We mentioned a few days ago that the shark thriller The Reef was swimming our way, but the good folks over at Image Entertainment have just made it official. Read on for the details.
From the Press Release
The waters of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef are unmatched in beauty and danger. Clear and blue, teeming with life – they tempt adventurers from the world over. On July 19 Image Entertainment presents The Reef. Based on a true event, it’s the gripping story of a group of friends on a yachting trip who find themselves facing the terrifying choice of “sink or swim.” A thriller that pits man’s will to live against nature’s relentless urge to feed, Andrew Traucki’s (Black Water) The Reef ill be available on DVD for an SRP of $27.97 and on Blu-ray™ for $29.97. This title will also be available on digital download.
Ship delivery man Luke (Damian Walsh-Howling) is accompanied by four friends (Gyton Grantley, Adrienne Pickering, Zoe Naylor, Mark Simpson) as he charts a yacht to its new owner. Along the way, their ship is ripped open by the coral reefs hiding just below the ocean’s surface. They are forced to choose: stay on board with slim hope of rescue, or swim twelve miles to the nearest island…through shark-infested waters. Those that abandon ship are faced with the race of their lives, for as soon as they enter the water, a Great White shark catches their scent and the white-knuckled chase is on!
The Reef was shot in Australia using real sharks and including incredible underwater footage for a pulse-pounding, visually stunning experience. Featuring a young, talented cast, gorgeous scenery and a monster that doesn’t have to rely on science fiction, this is a thriller that never lets go until the final, heart-stopping scream!
