Today kicked off on a promising note when a friend of Shock tweeted a rumor about Warner Bros. Home Entertainment acquiring the DVD/Blu-ray rights to the Fright the 13th franchise.
It appears that rumor is now fact: Paramount has indeed sold the rights to Jason Voorhees' exploits as part of a recent package deal in which WBHE picked up over 600 titles from Paramount's library.
What does that mean for you? We'll see re-releases of all Friday titles and, now, perhaps a box set that includes the entire series. This was impossible before because Warner Bros./New Line separate owned the home video rights to Jason Goes to Hell, Jason X, Freddy vs. Jason and Friday the 13th (2009).
