Our series on big-screen remakes continues with a cult horror film that kickstarted the illustrious career of Steve McQueen. This week, Cinelinx looks at The Blob (1958 vs. 1988). Come inside to see how these two films stack up.
The original version of The Blob was a low-budget monster film made for $110,000. The titular creature was originally supposed to be called The Molten Meteor Monster, which then was changed to The Mass, which turned into The Glob, and Finally The Blob. The film's tongue-in-cheek title song was written by Burt Bacharach and Mack David, which became a hit. The movie was directed by Irvin Yeaworth who specialized in directing motivational educational and religious films, so this was a departure for him. The film was a moderate success, grossing over $4 million, although the critics weren’t overly kind. It has a 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite its cheesiness, its reputation has grown over »

To celebrate the release of True Deception – available on DVD 25th April – we have a copy to giveaway!
A stellar ensemble cast of James Franco (127 Hours), Ed Harris (Snowpiercer), Amber Heard (The Danish Girl), and Christian Slater (True Romance) stars in this semi-autobiographical story about a writer’s obsession with his own past and a real-life murder case. An unnerving thriller packed with stunning performances, shock twists, and psychological tension.
Director Pamela Romanowsky has also done a fantastic job in her feature debut, crafting a film that’s equally dark and complex as the source book, Stephen Elliot’s acclaimed memoir ‘The Adderall Diaries’. With its flashbacks and non-linear narrative, True Deception will have you second-guessing Elliot’s story every step of the way and promises to be one of the year’s most psychologically affecting thrillers. Not to be missed.
