The Blob

Dir: Chuck Russell
Star: Kevin Dillon, Shawnee Smith, Donovan Leitch Jr., Jeffrey De Munn

[2] More proof that throwing money at a film doesn't always work. The effects are acceptable, the acting corny and the characters cliched. I can't help wondering what the money was spent on - certainly, the sections I enjoyed most, such as Garden Tool Massacre, the film-within-the-film parody of the Friday the 13th series, showed no sign of the budget. Nice to see a movie with a message these days. And the message is, 'If you put your hand down a girl's blouse, her face explodes and strangles you.' After Nightmare 3, strike 2 for Chuck, I'm afraid.

Where's Steve McQueen?
