Let's go to The Colonial Theater...where the original Blob movie was shot...to see the 1988 remake of this classic scary flick.
This remake of the 1958 camp classic preserves the tongue-in-cheek flavor of the original, yet uses superb special effects to bring a little more flare to the man-eating blob. As opposed to the slow, oozing menace of the first film, the blob in this film is one mean protoplasm capable of great strength, speed, and jolts of electricity.
Kevin Dillon plays a young man who tries saving himself and his family from the slippery creature that he comes to learn is all part of some government conspiracy. If someone were to compile a list of the best sci-fi remakes, The Blob would surely deserve a place near the top, for it takes the themes and tones from the original film and enhances them with great effect.
Keeping with our usual MST3K style...I'll post a separate pre-meetup for dinner and/or drinks.
I hope to see you there!
