The Blob

Chuck Russell | 1988 | 95 min | USA

Dear Hollywood (We've got your IP address logged, and know you read the blog daily, so quit pretending you don't.),

The directors you're hiring for your current crop of horror film remakes can't hold a candle to the guys who did it in the 80's. Have you already forgotten how incredible The Thing, and The Fly are? Surely you haven't forgotten The Blob! Have you?! Please everyone... Watch Chuck Russell's version of The Blob. If your new remakes were even half as good as it is (It's REALLY good!), I would go see them all on opening weekend. Until you show me that you care though... I'll continue avoiding the majority of them, and making people who go see them feel stupid.

Regards,
J.

This man knows of what he speaks!
Third favorite remake ever, interestingly enough, after the other two that he mentioned.
