From Scream Factory: "Terror has no shape! Chuck Russell’s incredibly underrated 1988 remake of THE BLOB is oozing its way to Scream Factory this Halloween. Here are the early details we have a current time to share.
• National street date for North America (Region A) is Oct 29th.
• This will be presented as a Collector’s Edition and will come guaranteed with a slipcover in its first three months of release.
• The newly commissioned artwork pictured comes to us from Joel Robinson (Candyman, 10 to Midnight, In the Mouth of Madness). This art will be front-facing and the reverse side of the wrap will feature the original theatrical artwork.
• Extras will be announced on a later date, but we can confirm that we have produced already a slew of them!

I prefer this over the original with Steve McQueen. The effects in this are great. Kevin Dillon and Shawnee Smith have great chemistry together. Chuck Russell is a good director. I believe he also directed Dream Warriors in the Nightmare franchise.
Glad I already own this one as part of a four pack. Although this edition seems worth having too.
I guess Rob Zombie had in mind to do another remake of this, but his version sounded awful, to be frank.
If another remake did come along I feel this story would benefit from the found footage style.
This version though is hard to beat. Especially considering some of the death scenes within it.
