today's CGI = bad
special effects in the blob = great
Kevin Dillon's mullet = great
blob that kills kids = great

what a film!

donovan leitch's death scene is the best part, IMO. freaky!

I love The Blob remake...It's probably my favourite remake of all time and one of the best horror films of the 80's...Like ZC, I've always hoped for a sequel...

Great fucking remake, gore was awesome, and they contemporized the story enough so that it didn't ruin the original message, but also kept the audience engaged. Need to pick up the dvd soon, $5.99 bin at wallmart?

That's where I got it, yep You can find some great stuff occasionally in there, like Duel to the Death, one of the best Kungfu/wuxia ninja flicks ever made. Oh yeah and Mean Guns, the Ice T and Christpher Lambert masterpiece.

I really liked this version. I remember watching is on a regular basis for about a month when it first came out on VHS. There were whispers in the air about a new version too which I'm not are true or not.
