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

"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. "

Horror movies - 35 years of remakes - (52 movies items)

" Directed by: Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King, Bless the Child, Eraser, The Mask, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) With: Kevin Dillon Was the original - The Blob (1958) - worth a look? I haven't seen it but even though Steve McQueen is in it, it still does look pretty cheesy. Was this remake worth a look? It doesn't look really good but since I have a weak spot for Chuck Russell, I think I will see it at some point in the future."
