Terror has no shape! From director Chuck Russell (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) comes the incredibly underrated 1988 remake of The Blob is oozing its way to Scream Factory this Halloween in an all-new blu-ray release. A pinnacle of 80s horror movies.
The Blob is back in this horrific tale about a vile, malignant life-form that crashes to Earth in a cozy, rural American town called Arborville. Untroubled by conscience or intellect, the Blob does only one thing - and it does it well. It eats anything and everything that moves: men, women, children. And tonight it wants to swallow the town of Arborville. The original version of The Blob thrilled and terrified audiences back in the 1950s. Now the oozing, gooey killer is back with a whole new high-tech look. What was once only suggested now comes to life with state-of-the-art special effects in the tradition of such thrilling remakes as The Thing and The Fly.
