Remake of the 1958 sci-fi horror classic about a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everything in its path. Teenagers attempt without success to warn the townspeople, who refuse to take them seriously.
A group of scientists have developed the Resonator, a machine which allows whoever is within range to see beyond normal perceptible reality. But when the experiment succeeds, they are immediately attacked by terrible life forms.
A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.
Meg Penny is a cheerleader out on her first date with one of the football players, Paul Taylor. It doesn't go very well. Before they get where they're going, an old vagrant runs out in front of Paul's car, screaming in terror. The old man is closely followed by Brian Flagg, the local teen rebel, complete with long hair, black leather jacket, motorcycle and tough-guy attitude. Paul blames Brian for chasing the old man, but after the threesome takes him to the doctor's office, it becomes clear the vagrant had more to worry about than some young tough. He was screaming because of the acid-like substance on his hand - a substance that spreads over his body and eventually consumes him. Soon, the growing red blob, which sprouts tentacles to attack its victims, becomes a menace to the small town of Arbeville, Colorado.

New remake with high grade special effects and amazing killings
This new version from the Steve McQueen's camp classic with more gore and guts than original that was shot with low budget.Again deals about a small town besieged by an enormous, man-eating amoebic mass and fast-growing that land over earth from exterior space.Our hero(Kevin Dillon)is a rebellious young man who saves the damsel(Shawnee Smith)in distress and taking on policeman(Jeffrey DeMoon)and scientific(Joe Seneca).
This high budget film contains noisy action, suspense, grisly murders and lots of blood and gore. This sequel provides great load of screams, terror, creepy atmosphere which becomes pretty sinister with the mound of glop appearing. It's a sleek production with genuine chills, tension, shocks and nice special effects by Dream Quest, making an exciting slimy jello invader and frightening and horrifying to the audience. This remake rips off Irvin S. Yeaworth's version(again remade by Larry Hagman in ¨Beware, the Blob¨) like when the large Glob exploding through the theater screen(meanwhile the spectators are watching a splatter film , Friday,13-alike) and people stampede from cinema, among others. The film packs a good cinematography by Mark Irwin with ominous camera angles, colorful atmospheres and moody woods. The motion picture is well directed by Chuck Russell,who made the third and best version of ¨Nightmare on Elm Street¨. Rating : Acceptable and passable. Well worth watching. This is a cool tribute to the original movie.
