Rob Zombie takes on 'The Blob'

Posted on

Variety is reporting that horrormeister Rob Zombie is turning his attention to a remake of the 1958 classic The Blob. The original followed a giant red blob from outer space that absorbed everything in its path. Not surprisingly, Zombie told Variety he has something more grim in mind: “That gigantic Jello-looking thing might have been scary to audiences in the 1950s, but people would laugh now. I have a totally different take, one that’s pretty dark.” Zombie’s second installment of his Halloween series reboot, Halloween II, premieres today.
