Once you're absorbed by the terror, you can't even scream. The slimy mass that is the Blob first thrilled audiences when it took on Steve McQueen in 1958. Thirty years later, The Blob was reborn in a remake that co-starred The Walking Dead's Jeffrey DeMunn and was co-written by Frank Darabont. Twilight Time is bringing 1988's The Blob to Blu-ray, and its release date should be perfect timing for horror hounds.
Blu-ray.com reports that Twilight Time will release The Blob (1988) on Blu-ray for the first time just a couple weeks before Halloween, on October 14th. The R-rated remake with a runtime of 95 minutes is getting the Blu-ray treatment along with 10 other new September and October offerings from Twilight Time. With a dedicated fan base just itching to get their hands on a Blu-ray copy of 1988's The Blob, Twilight Time has increased their stock from 3,000 units to 5,000 units for the title.
"Remake of the 1958 horror sci-fi about a deadly blob which is the spawn of a secret government germ warfare project which consumes everyone in its path. Teenagers try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously, while government agents try to cover up the evidence and confine the creature..."
Directed by Chuck Russell, The Blob stars Kevin Dillon, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn, Candy Clark, and Joe Seneca.
