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.

"Re-watch - Oct. 10th I've been trying unsuccessfully for a while now to track down a copy of The Blob so I could revisit it, so when I saw my favorite local AMC was screening it for its 30th anniversary I reserved my seat immediately. And it's safe to say it's been about 30 years since I last saw it. I remember back in 88 or 89 one of my best friends was obsessed with this film & on one of the times I slept over we had to watch it. I vaguely recall enjoying it, and was surprised that some of it"
