When people talk about remakes that absolutely hit the mark, 1988’s The Blob always gets high marks. Now, fans of the gelatinous monstrosity can look forward to a new Collector’s Edition from Scream Factory arriving in online and brick and mortar retailers beginning October 29th!
Check out the film’s synopsis and trailer below, followed by Scream Factory’s official announcement and special features for The Blob Collector’s Edition.
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.
On October 29, 2019, SCREAM FACTORY™ is thrilled to present THE BLOB Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. Directed by Chuck Russell (The Scorpion King), the film stars Kevin Dillon (Entourage), Shawnee Smith (SAW movies), Donovan Leitch (Glory), Jeffrey DeMunn (Billions) with Candy Clark (American Graffiti) and Joe Seneca (A Time to Kill) as Dr. Meddows. A must-have for sci-fi horror enthusiasts and movie collectors, this definitive collector’s edition contains special bonus content, including two new audio commentaries, over four hours of new interviews, and more.
