I bought a Region 1 version(its not available in the UK on DVD) on amazon, costing me $7 and its being shipped to me as we speak. This was one movie that scared me as a child. The whole feeling of dieing via part drowning, part being absorbed like Paul Taylor dies in that scene in the hospital messed me up GOOD. Also - I steered clear of kitchen sinks...
I havent seen this movie in ages, but I hated it... in the sense that it freaked me out. I should get it around the 25th October and give it a watch.

Glad to see so much love for this flick. I was lucky enough to see it in theaters when it was released and it was a blast. It scared the hell out of me. I think director Chuck Russell (who also worked on Hell Night and directed A Nightmare on Elm Street 3) did a good job with it. It had good amount of suspence and the specail effects were flawless. They made a very scary and effective monster.

I love The Blob remake, but I'm ashamed to say that out of the countless horror flicks I've seen, I've never watched the original.

Is it true they're making another remake? Using tonnes of crappy looking CGI, I'm sure:

Tallk about pointless. A remake of a remake? Well, they did it with Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Default The Blob (1988) needs a SE DVD pronto!

Like a lot of you , I have the only available R1 version of The Blob remake...I watched it again the other day and the transfer sucks. Not to mention it's a bare bones DVD. Am I the only one that thinks it would benefit from an update?
