#102: The Blob
Episode Description: Our Month of Horrors Extravaganza continues this week as we tackle 1988’s remake of the sci-fi classic The Blob, directed by Chuck Russell. A ball of gelatinous goo has crash landed into a small Colorado town, and it isn’t long before this alien substance starts making a meal of the local residents. The body horror is strong with this one, with lots of goopy practical effects that make us very happy. Kevin Dillon’s mullet isn’t half-bad, either. A pleasant, gross surprise awaits you.
Summer Blockbuster!?! is a podcast featuring InRO Editor-in-Chief Luke Gorham and Bradley University film professor Steve Warner. The duo look to tackle films each episode which received wide releases during the competitive summer movie season, but which had no sensible reason for such a rollout. And sometimes they cheat and don’t abide by this framework at all. A new episode will be posted each Friday from the beginning of May until the end of October, moving to a bi-weekly posting schedule after.
