What jiggles, splashes, and has millions of sharp-pointy teeth? Find out when the campy horror film spawns this September!

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will unleash 'Piranha 3DD' on Blu-ray on September 4.

A sequel to 'Piranha 3D' – the 2010 reboot of the fan-favorite franchise from the ‘70s – 'Piranha 3DD' stars Danielle Panabaker ('The Crazies,' 'Friday the 13th'), Katrina Bowden (TV’s “30 Rock”), David Koechner ('Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,' 'Get Smart'), David Hasselhoff (TV’s “Baywatch,” “Knight Rider”), Christopher Lloyd ('Piranha 3D,' 'Back to the Future'), and Gary Busey ('Lethal Weapon,' 'The Buddy Holly Story'). Directed by John Gulager ('Feast') and written by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (the writing team behind four 'Saw' titles).

'Piranha 3DD' incorporates the classic elements of the teen horror/exploitation movies of the 1970s, packed with ferocious flesheaters, scantily-clad young victims, and bizarre and exciting twists and turns. Whereas 'Piranha 3D' took place on a lake, the 2012 sequel is set at a water park, complete with water slides and a lazy river – the perfect places for piranha mayhem! Back for more outrageous fun, Christopher Lloyd reprises his role as the eccentric piranha expert.

The Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary with the filmmakers, The Story Behind the DD, The Hofftastic World of David Hasselhoff, Wet and Wild with David Koechner, Busey's Bloopers, Short film: A Lesson with John McEnroe, and deleted scenes.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray 3D combo pack is $29.99.
