‘Scream now, while there’s still room to breathe.’
The Blob is a 1988 science fiction horror film written by Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont, and directed by Russell. It is a remake of the 1958 film of the same name, which starred Steve McQueen.
The remake stars Kevin Dillon, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn, Candy Clark and Joe Seneca.
Special effects in the film were handled by Tony Gardner. He was originally supposed to handle only a few small effects, but after personnel changes he ended up running a crew of thirty-three, including artist Chet Zar and mechanical effects designer Bill Sturgeon.
“Everything that was awesome about 50’s creature feature movies is in this movie and then amplified with pure 80’s cheese. It’s a blast! The only thing that could have made it better (besides a bigger boss fight at the end) is if it’d been set in a college town and the blob invades a party where a bunch of hot naked chicks are running around topless.” Happyotter
“This version of The Blob is not just a great remake, but is also a very solid, well-made, tremendously entertaining monster movie. As much as I may bitch about the plethora of remakes these days, I wouldn’t mind seeing so many of them if they were all as fun as The Blob.” Robin’s Underrated Gems
