TheBlob-1988-BD-box-02Don't be fooled by its festive cotton candy pink color, it will viciously pull you down a sink drain if it gets the chance. Thirty years after taking on Steve McQueen, the Blob made a comeback in a Chuck Russell-directed remake that's coming out soon in a limited edition Blu-ray from Twilight Time and we have a look at the release's cover art and list of bonus features.

Coming out on Blu-ray for the first time on October 14th, with a freshly restored print from Sony, Twilight Time's limited edition release of The Blob (1988) will be available to pre-order beginning September 24th at ScreenArchives.com. Only 5,000 copies will be available, so expect this title to sell out quickly.

The Blob (1988) Blu-ray Special Features (via Shock Till You Drop):

  • Isolated Score Track
  • Audio Commentary with Director Chuck Russell and Shock Till You Drop’s Ryan Turek
  • Friday Night Frights at The Cinefamily (Q&A with Russell at a 2014 screening of The Blob)
  • Original Theatrical Trailer

“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 (1988) stars Kevin Dillon, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn, Candy Clark, and Joe Seneca.
