A 'meteor' crashes near a mountain resort town carrying an apopalyptic payload that threatens not just the town, but the world.

A superior remake of the original starring Shawnee Smith and a baby-faced Keven Dillon. It's got a nice Eighties pessimistic edge to it. The movie replaces the 'just how stupid do you have to be to get eaten by this thing' blob with an horrific predator th... read more
View all The Blob reviews
In a tiny California town, high school students Brian (Kevin Dillon), Meg (Shawnee Smith) and Paul (Donovan Leitch) discover a strange, gelatinous substance that melts the flesh of any living creatures in its path. The deadly substance gets into the town's sewer system, where it begins growing uncontrollably, occasionally emerging to feast on unsuspecting townspeople. A military clean-up crew is sent to eliminate the menace, but it may end up doing more harm than good.

"I am a huge fan of the orignal film. But this was better. It was scary and edge-of-your-seat. People may say remakes suck, but this doesn't."

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"Rock salt was dyed purple to create the crystallized Blob for the ending of the movie. Both Chuck Russell, and the film's co writer, Frank Darabont, previously worked on A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 3, Russell directed and wrote part 3, while Darabont also co wrote part 3. "

"October 17 After seeing the original movie, I was wondering if this was better. While it does fix some of the problems from the original, it still has problems of its own. The dialogue was really weird. Sometimes it was good and sometimes it wasn't. Despite the flaws I enjoyed it and I really liked how the blob looked. "

Movie Journal - June 2012 (14 movies items)

"- First Time Watch - A really fun and gruesome remake, with incredible effects! The characters aren't outstanding, but they're likable enough, and the script offers some funny dialogue and moments. This is one of the films that balances being funny and terrifying, really well. "
