Format: DVD
Let's not compare Chuck Russell's "revisiting" of the classic 1958 movie which was one of Steve McQueen's first starring roles. Thirty years of cinematic improvements make a comparison wholly unnecessary and unfair. THE BLOB, as envisioned by Chuck Russell (Eraser), is a scifi gorefest, with some imaginative effects and its own brand of intense mayhem.
A meteor crashes to earth near a small ski-resort town. The kindly old "can man" finds the crash site, and plays around with some messy looking stuff oozing from the meteor. This stuff is actually some kind of viral mess that absorbs and spreads like wildfire. One of the main differences in the two movies is that in this version, is the monster from outer space, or...ha, no spoilers. Suffice to say, things are not what they seem.
The cast is a mixture of good performers and adequate ones. Good: Jeffrey DeMunn as the sheriff who has the hots for the town's kindly restaurant owner, played with youthful elegance by Candy Clark (American Graffiti). Also good: Art LaFleur as the pharmacist and papa to heroine Shawnee Smith (merely adequate). Kevin Dillon swaggers like a James Dean wannabe but matures as the picture moves on and he becomes a likely and likeable hero. Joe Seneca as the mysterious doctor is surprisingly effective in a villainous role for a change, and Donovan Leitch in his little screen time evokes a rare mature teenager. The scene in the pharmacy where a friend of Leitch's purchases condoms is pretty funny. As for the horror scenes, they're good: the blob in the restaurant wherein the cook goes down the drain; the stampede in the movie theater when the blob takes center stage; and the finale with the snow machine. All well done and effective. Compared to a lot of really bad horror movies currently going straight to DVD, THE BLOB is a cut above the rest, and remember, there's always rooms for jello!!!

The 80's remake of The Blob has much wilder special effects but every time The Blob shows up your stomach turns its not as fun as the 5o's version when you couldn't wait to see more Blob. Characters in this movie are the biggest problem THEY ALL DIE. You can't follow anyone cause they die in the next two minutes. And the two chosen characters are less than interesting. Not great. Music by Michael Hoenig. Check out The Stuff its pretty bad too but in a fun funny way.

SEE! Intentionally laughable corny dialogue!
SEE! The time period of the movie not being able to decide whether it is the 80s or the 50s, with hilarious results like Kevin Dillon dressed like James Dean in a motorcycle jacket, but with a mullet!
SEE! Stock characters you know and secretly love, like Candy Clark as the Diner Waitress who Acts Tough but has a Heart of Gold, especially when it comes to the amorous local sheriff, the Football Hero who is a little bit of a snob, the Misunderstood Motorcycle Punk with a crush on the heroine who looks tough and all in his leather jacket but is Smarter than he Looks, the Priest who is a Closet Drunk and preaches Hellfire and Damnation and nbllows things like "This was all foretold in the book of Revelations!" when the Blob slithers around main street, stuffing people into itself.
SEE! Candy Clark (I almost called her Candy Johnson, aka the 60's gastest Go-Go dancer, by mistake--now THAT I'd buy the DVD to see) trapped in a glass phone booth surrounded by The Blob!
SEE! Annoying characters, even bratty kids, graphically get what they deserve! Yeah!
SEE! A government conspiracy involving top brass in biohazard suits that tell main characters things like, "You're not prisoners... you're patients!" while locking them into the back of an "ambulance"?.
SEE! Chapter selections on the DVD with titles like "PUNK YES, KILLER NO".
SEE! Loving homages to the original such as the centerpiece where the Blob attacks/devours nearly an entire movie theater with a shot of terrified patrons stampeding out of the theater pursued by the blob oozing up behind them!
SEE! An urban legend involving a druggist and a teenage boy buying condoms!
SEE!

The Blob is a fun movie. It is nothing more. It is nothing less. It won't win any awards for acting or plot, but then it was never really meant to. You see, this '80s remake of the 1950-something [ahem] "classic" is really just a ridiculous b-movie with fancy special effects.
The plot is almost as absurd as the title, following what appears to be a colossal alien jelly as it rampages through an American town, munching on its inhabitants and generally being a bit of a nuisance. Cue face melting, blood spurting and lots and lots of gore.
The acting is as cheesy as everything else in the movie, and the very idea of a psychotic blob murdering people is somewhat laughable, but as i already mentioned, this is an entertaining Saturday night horror film.

The Blob is 1980's horror at its VERY BEST!!!
None of that CGI stuff --- were talking PURE animatronics and puppetry, in full effect!
The outcome is a Blob, that to me at least, looks very real --- couple that with the fact that all of the attack scenes and dead bodies were done up with real makeup (once again, no CGIing) and we've got VERY realistic, bloody, scenes
I must say that the attacks in this movie are INNOVATIVE!!! Most movies today would avoid showing you what actually takes place (take The Ring, for example, which cuts away whenever the GOOD stuff happens) --- The Blob, on the other hand, leaves NOTHING at one's imagination.... I recall a scene where The Blob pulls an entire man into a sink drain or when it depresses the entire face of one woman --- seriously, this is some serious attack stuff
Is the plot good? Actually, yes! I loved the plot! I don't wanna give too much away, but I think it very much symbolizes that 1980's feel of insecurity over one's own government --- the source of more problems than solutions (perhaps the filmmaker was a Reagan Republican?)
and of course, ya gotta love the sultry, Shawnee Smitth!
The Blob is significant because, shortly after, most horror movies abandoned puppeteering and makeup, in favor of CGI and graphics --- making The Blob, truly, the pinnacle of what yesterday's technology could offer ---- and in this filmmaker's opinion, I'm inclined to say that yesterday's technology was a lot more fun (so far)
This movie should be required within every DVD collection, especially horror/scifi ones!
Thank you for reading my review and happy buying!
