Voom HD Networks’ Monsters HD has a big monkey on its back. The network said Tuesday that it has acquired 44 classic and contemporary horror titles from Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution, including the original 1933 King Kong, Son of Kong and Mighty Joe Young. The network said all of the films have been digitally restored, and they will air uncut, uninterrupted and in HD. Many of them will air in HD for the first time, Monsters HD added. “While the horror genre continues to thrive and fuel the box office with big-screen remakes like Peter Jackson's King Kong, this acquisition reflects our commitment as TV's No. 1 destination for the monster-movie fan,” Monsters HD senior vice president and general manager David Sehring said in a prepared statement.
