Okay… real quick update today to close out the week…

First, totally not BD-related but if you click on over to the SLOOH Space Camera website in the next 30 minutes or so, you can watch a 1.7 mile wide asteroid fly safely by the Earth LIVE via streaming webcast.  Pretty cool.

Also today, the folks over at the Dread Central website have sleuthed out some cool news for you horror film fans, specifically the likelihood that Warner Home Video may be getting ready to release a complete Blu-ray box set of Paramount’s Friday the 13th films in time for the holidays!  More here.
