Back in 2014, Twilight Time released Chuck Russell’s remake of 1958's The Blob on a limited edition Blu-ray, and if you missed out on adding it to your collection, Scream Factory has you covered this Halloween season with their new Collector's Edition Blu-ray of 1988's The Blob. Ahead of its release on October 29th, Scream Factory has announced the full list of special features for The Blob Collector's Edition Blu-ray, including two new audio commentaries and a bunch of new interviews with the cast and crew.
Press Release: 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, and children. It wants to swallow the entire town of Arborville. The original version of the Blob thrilled and terrified movie audiences back in the 1950s. Now the oozing, gooey killer is back. 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. Preorder is available now at ShoutFactory.com
