The Blob (1988) REVIEW
A meteor falls near a small town in the USA. A homeless man goes to see what’s in it and a jelly-like substance “attacks” him and starts eating away at him. He’s discovered by local tough kid Kevin Dillon and (with pretty Shawnee Smith and prettier Donovan Leitch) drive him to the hospital. There he’s eaten alive while waiting for the doctor and the blob is loose–eating anything in its path. But, in no time flat, a bunch of scientists and military men arrive to help…or are they?I HATED the original one…and I don’t care if it was Steve McQueen’s first film (he was always a lousy actor anyways). It was slow, stupid with terrible special effects and a VERY slow-moving blob. This one has a very funny script that never takes itself too seriously; it moves very quickly; this blob moves like lightning (I was actually getting scared when it chased Smith and Dillon in the diner–you see it following them on the ceiling–and GAINING!); has some great, scary special effects (and no crummy CGI); proudly gives us an R rated horror film (today it would have been cut to a PG-13) and has mostly great acting. Also the taboo about killing kids in a horror film is surprisingly ignored!Smith (who I thought was hopeless in “The Desperate Hours”) is surprisingly very good here; Leitch is good too (and prettier than her) but disappears early on; and there’s a great supporting cast of good actors with especially nice turns by Candy Clark and Jeffrey DeMunn. Only Dillon disappoints–he’s pretty wooden in his role. And I REALLY hated the “origin” given for the blob–it was totally unnecessary. And the very end was silly (and an obvious setup for the sequel that never was made). This was a big hit with horror fans–but didn’t do much at the box office. Too bad. Maybe it will be rediscovered one of these days.A quick, fast, funny, scary film with great special effects. Well worth catching. I’m giving it an 8.
The Blob (1988) PLOT STORY
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.
Meg Penny is a cheerleader out on her first date with one of the football players, Paul Taylor. It doesn’t go very well. Before they get where they’re going, an old vagrant runs out in front of Paul’s car, screaming in terror. The old man is closely followed by Brian Flagg, the local teen rebel, complete with long hair, black leather jacket, motorcycle and tough-guy attitude. Paul blames Brian for chasing the old man, but after the threesome takes him to the doctor’s office it becomes clear the vagrant had more to worry about than some young tough. He was screaming because of the acid-like substance on his hand – a substance that spreads over his body and eventually consumes him. Soon, the growing red blob, which sprouts tentacles to attack its victims, becomes a menace to the small town of Arbeville, Colorado. The military soon arrives in Hazmat suits, led by the wide-eyed Dr. Meddows. They’re from the government, they say, and they want to help; but Brian’s distrust for authority figures proves justified when he learns of their true motives.
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.
