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 announcement of a new Collector's Edition Blu-ray of 1988's The Blob.
The Collector's Edition Blu-ray of The Blob (1988) will be released on October 29th. Special features have yet to be announced, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on future announcements, and in the meantime, you can check out the new cover art by Joel Robinson below.
From Scream Factory: "Terror has no shape! Chuck Russell’s incredibly underrated 1988 remake of THE BLOB is oozing its way to Scream Factory this Halloween. Here are the early details we have a current time to share.
• National street date for North America (Region A) is Oct 29th.
• This will be presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.
• The newly commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (Candyman, 10 to Midnight, In the Mouth of Madness). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.
• Extras will be announced on a later date, but we can confirm that we have produced already a slew of them!
Pre-orders on our site begin today which includes the Blu-ray plus a rolled 18” x 24” poster of the new art. The poster is exclusive to us and will be made at a limited run of 500 pieces: https://www.shoutfactory.com/…/the-blob-collector-s-edition…"
