Remake of the 1958 horror sci-fi about a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everyone in its path. Teenagers try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously. Written by
Theatrical trailer shows part of deleted scene in which Fran is chased by the Blob through the restaurant. In this deleted scene she is running towards the doors while the Blob is knocking down tables and chairs. When she gets to the doors she realizes that they are locked and that she doesn't have a key so she jumps out the window. Another scene was filmed but deleted in which Blob kills and eats a squirrel. Also some versions of the movie had alternate death scenes of Paul and Eddie, with different editing (Paul's death) and different gore effects (Eddie's death). See more »

Nifty, nasty remake of a true sci-fi orig. classic
THE BLOB (1988) *** Kevin Dillon, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch, Joe Seneca, Candy Clark. Excellent remake of the sci-fi camp classic with rebel Dillon and cheerleader Smith battling the excessively growing man-eating organism wreaking havoc on their small town community. Gooey grotesque special effects are the true star thanks to director Chuck Russell. Look sharply for Erika Eleniak as a victim as she's about to be felt up on a date (lucky blob!)
