A Blob Remake Might Actually Be Cool

The idea of remaking The Blob with modern filmmaking technology is actually pretty interesting. It's almost funny to go back and watch the original 1958 movie with its now-outdated special effects, so visually this remake has some potential.

The thing about this Blob remake news that's not so cool? Rob Zombie is the director taking it on. Having "reimagined" the first and second Halloween movies, Zombie is tackling this remake, which will cost around $30 million and will be R-rated. About the project, Zombie says:

My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing — that's the first thing I want to change. That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now. I'd been looking to break out of the horror genre, and this really is a science fiction movie about a thing from outer space. I intend to make it scary, and the great thing is I have the freedom once again to take it in any crazy direction I want to.

I'll be curious to find out with what Zombie plans to replace the "big red blobby thing" in the movie titled The Blob, but at the very least, I'm hoping this remake will have some neat effects. Can you see a Blob remake working in this day and age?

they remade it back in 1988 and that was actually written by Frank Darabont (shawshank, green mile) It starred Kevin Dillon and Shawnee smith and I loved it! I can see zombie doing right by it though, so I would see this third one.
