'The Reef' Blu-ray Announced and Detailed

Posted Tue May 10, 2011 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The dangers of the Great Barrier Reef come to the surface in the 2010 thriller coming to Blu-ray this July.

In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment is prepping 'The Reef' for Blu-ray on July 19.

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, Andrea Traucki’s ('Black Water') '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!

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include a making-of featurette and a trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.97.
