Image Entertainment Acquires ‘The Reef’ for July DVD/Blu-ray

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, Andrea Traucki’s (Black Water) The Reef will 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.
