The Blob ★★★ 1988 (R)

A hi-tech remake of the 1958 camp classic about a small town beset by a fast-growing, man-eating mound of glop shot into space by scientists, irradiated into an unnatural being, and then returned to earth. Well-developed characters make this an excellent tribute to the first film. 92m/C VHS, DVD . Kevin Dillon, Candy Clark, Joe Seneca, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch, Jeffrey DeMunn, Ricky Paull Goldin, Del Close; D: Chuck Russell; W: Chuck Russell, Frank Darabont; C: Mark Irwin.
