Lionsgate has unwrapped final specs for 'Saw V,' which will slash its way to Blu-ray with hours of blood-splattered bonus features and exclusive Director's Cut.

As previously reported, Lionsgate had alerted retailers to a January 20 Blu-ray release for the latest in the Jigsaw Killer franchise, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Newly confirmed specs will see a two-disc set featuring the 96-minute unrated cut of the film spread across a BD-50 dual-layer disc in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 video and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 7.1 Surround.

Extras will boast multiple audio commentaries with cast & crew, a multi-part "Multiple Traps" documentary, deleted scenes, and a Digital Copy of the film (in standard-def only).

Exclusive to the Blu-ray will be the BD-Live "MoLog" feature, allowing users to connect and chat online during playback of the film.

Finally, Lionsgate has issued final box art for 'Saw V':

As previously announced, suggested retail price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
