Posted Fri Dec 9, 2011 at 06:00 AM PST by

Horror fans will be venturing into shark infested waters on Blu-ray in January.

In an early retailer announcement, 20th Century Fox has revealed 'Shark Night' is coming to Blu-ray on January 3.

Your deepest fears are about to surface with this frightening tale of seven vacationers whose fun weekend at a lake house turns into a nightmare when they become victims of a series of hellish shark attacks. From David R. Ellis, the director of 'The Final Destination,' 'Shark Night' features a sexy ensemble cast who bring a whole new dimension of terror to the screen.

The moment Sara (Sara Paxton) and her friends arrive at her parent's Louisiana lake house, the party is in full gear. Everyone is having a blast until Malik (Sinqua Walls) loses his arm in what initially appears to be a tragic wake-boarding mishap. Determined to get him to the nearest hospital as quickly as possible, it isn't until they're far from shore that they realize the lake is teeming with hungry sharks, and a tiny speedboat isn't about to stop them from getting their next meal. As the feeding frenzy begins, Sara and her pals realize that their only hope for survival is to swim for their lives!

'Shark Night' features performances from Sara Paxton ('Superhero Movie'), Dustin Milligan ('Slither'), Chris Carmack (“The O.C.”), Katharine McPhee (“American Idol,” 'House Bunny'), Chris Zylka ('My Super Psycho Sweet 16,' "The Secret Circle"), Alyssa Diaz (“As the World Turns”), Joel David Moore ('Avatar) and Sinqua Walls ('The Second Half').

Specs have yet to be detailed, but the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will include: Shark Attack Kill Machine -- a feature allowing viewers to jump to their favorite kills, Ellis' Island featurette on director yet David R. Ellis, and the Blu-ray exclusive Shark Night's Survival Guide and Fake Sharks, Real Scares.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
