Trick 'R Treat Finally on DVD?

I can't think of a single film that's currently being kept out of horror fan's DVD players that's more wanted than Mike Dougherty's "Trick 'R Treat". Doughertry, who wrote both "X2" and "Superman Returns", has recieved great feedback from the few screenings of the film, but still no love from Warner Bro's, the studio currently holding the rights to it. It has gone through multiple release dates and restarts, but here we sit nearly two years later with no word. There's something interesting being reported today that may signal a change to all that. On a forum post about WB DVD deals (taken from a press release), "Trick 'r Treat" is mentioned among a list of DVD's eligible for the promotion. Here are the details:

he Offer: Buy five (5) participating United States and/or Canadian Warner Home Video Blu-ray Discs™("Participating Titles") at any retail location in the United States or Canada to qualify to receive one (1) FREE (plus shipping and handling) Warner Home Video Blu-ray disc ("Redemption Title").

It may not be the theatrical release that it could possibly deserve (let's be honest, none of us have seen it), but at least it's something. Many films get released straight to DVD these days and go on to be very successful. It may not be what the writer of "X2" had envisioned with his passion project, but sometimes you have to take what you can get. Check the trailer below.
