The Blob (1988) DVD
The Blob is old fashioned cheesy, violent entertainment, it takes a little bit of time to get going, but once it does, boy is it fun. There's not really any layers to it, and that's great, because the last thing I want to see is crowbarred in hidden meanings or references. The only real star of note is Kevin Dillon, who was in Entourage, which I never watched. Director Chuck Russell also directed the somewhat groundbreaking effects film The Mask, with Jim Carey, which is a good indication of how well the effects stand up in this film. 30 years on, it looks better than many, many films made after it.
