The Original 1933 King Kong Coming to Blu-ray

It's reporting news like this that makes me thrilled to run a horror website. That's right, kids! The true king of the giant monster jungle is getting ready to leave his mark on Blu-ray High Definition!

According to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision Blog, "KING KONG, the master of all movie beasts and one of the more important movies of the 20th century, will make its Blu-ray debut Sept. 28, 2010.

Warner Home Video is behind the Blu-ray iteration of the 1933 RKO classic, which will have all of the extras from the highly rated two-disc DVD special edition released in 2005 coinciding with the Peter Jackson remake.

The Blu-ray will come with a 32-page booklet featuring rare photographs and trivia written by film historian Rudy Behlmer, who apparently personally interviewed 'Kong' creator Merian C. Cooper back in the day."

Blu-ray owners? A winner is you!
