Editorial Reviews

More graphically-realistic than ever THE BLOB has returned in this horrific tale about a vile, malignant life-form that crashes to earth in a cozy, rural American town called Arborville. Untroubled by conscience or intellect, the Blob does only one thing-and does it well. It eats anything and everything that moves...men, women, children. And tonight it wants to swallow Arborville whole. The original version of THE BLOB thrilled and terrified audiences back in the 50's. Now the oozing, gooey killer is back with a new high-tech 80's look. What was once only suggested now comes to life in this visually gut-wrenching thriller in the tradition of such classic remakes as "The Thing" and "The Fly".

Customer Reviews

Very good special effects in this movie.
Gami
The movie was great, the Blob got more kill time on screen which was really lacking in the original and the teens actually looked like teens.
Amanda Felix
The Blob is 1980's horror at its VERY BEST!!!

I really enjoyed this remake. I love the original, and I think a good job was done staying true to the original, while managing to update it for a new generation. I've seen a lot of remakes, and very often you get a sense like the director is trying to avoid ties to the original movie, but not here.
I thought this movie was fast paced and fun. It kept me interested all the way through. It was quite violent at times, and gory, but when your subject matter is about an all consuming space blob, you sort of expect that kind of thing.
The interaction between the characters was pretty well done. Kevin Dillon plays Brain Flagg, our hero who is also an outcast due to his rebellious nature. Shawnee Smith plays the female lead, the all American cheerleader homecoming queen type. The two are thrown together to fight the blob.
This version starts off essentially the same as the original, the blob arriving from space and attacking an old man in the woods. The old man is found by the teenagers, and is taken to the hospital, where it proceeds to consume some characters. Brian Flagg is initially suspected by the police, as he's no stranger to them, but they have no physical evidence to hold him, so they have to let him go. Soon, people in this small town start disappearing, and the police have their hands full. Brian and Meg are the only two who have some idea what's going on, but when Meg tries to relate her story, what she saw, no one really believes her, and Brian isn't very credible, due to the reputation he has with the town in general.
Soon, the blob starts making itself known, consuming many people. Some kind of government agency shows up, and seals the town with the purpose of capturing the voracious organism.

In a small California town, life was simple for a teenage punk (Kevin Dillon) who falls for a lovely cheerleader (Shawnee Smith) but one night there's a strange meteorite crashes outside of town with a weird pink goo that consumes an old man's hand. Taken to a doctor, the weird slimy stuff is really alive for it's a monstrous organism that devours any creature or person that stands in it's way, can it be stopped?

Quite an awesome remake of the 50's sci-fi/horror classic with Steve Mcqueen that is just as good but with a new explanation on the creature's origin as it's a government experiment from space gone wrong. The acting is very good and so are the nifty special effects and gory detailed scenes of people being engulfed by the slime especially the memorable man being sucked down the sink scene, the blob itself is more nastier and meaner looking then the original glob of strawberry jam.

This DVD has good picture and sound quality with the only extras being trailers especially to the movie, but if you love sci-fi horror and the original then get this movie, you won't be disappointed.

If you wish to read of my adulation for this grisly, shocking, excellent remake, just scroll down to my March '99 review "Steve Mcqueen, Eat Your Heart Out!"
As far as the long-awaited DVD release of "The Blob" is concerned, I must say it is an absolute treat for this here horror/sci-fi buff! Just to see Chuck Russell's masterful film in its digitally remastered 1.85:1 widescreen glory, along with the original trailer feature, really made my collection's day! My only qualm is that Columbia/TriStar was rather remiss towards the sound design (still in 2.0 surround, just like my old VHS copy). "The Blob" is a film that is definitely made for a 5.1 or DTS mix with all of its explosions and the oozing, organic sound effects that helped breathed life into this infamous & reviled movie monster.
An awesome flick and a 4.5-star quality DVD...worth every cent.

Format: DVD
This 1988 re-make of the classic 50's horror film may have a few misfires here and there and it may look a bit dated, but it's a surprisingly good re-make which is quite a rarity. Nightmare on Elm Street 3 director Chuck Russell, who would go on to direct the Mask and Eraser, is at the helm of this gross-out romp with Kevin Dillon starring as a teenage rebel outsider who allies himself with a cheerleader (Saw's Shawnee Smith) when a murderous, slimy, monster goes on a rampage through their small town. The blood and gore effects are great for their time, while the effects of the Blob monster itself look a little dated. Everything else about this re-make however is still better than you would expect, including some imaginitive deaths. The cast also includes ER's Paul McCrane, and look for small roles featuring Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak and David Lynch regular and Eraserhead star Jack Nance as a hospital doctor.
