Completely stupid and cringe-worthy remake. Skip this one. I was bored to tears, the effects look awful, and the dialogue, plot, acting, all of it was nonsense and trash.

'The Blob' remake works as a better produced and directed update, while never letting go of what made the original a nostalgic treat. Like it's counterpart, this new Blob is a product of it's time. Everything I shamelessly enjoy about 80's B-movie cinema is captured just right. There's even some sly jabs at the slasher genre. Though, this remake is most notable for it's awesome practical effects. The Blob creature is completely believable on-screen this time around and the film does leans toward horror, with more chases and tense situations. One of the few remakes I prefer over the original.

This remake of the 1950s classic updates the setting and special effects but sadly doesn't update the acting or plot. However, if you like B-grade horror films, you can't miss this. It's a cheese fest all the way.
