Rob Zombie has decided to film another remake of The Blob, eliminating the one element I would consider definitive of The Blob:
`My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing, that’s the first thing I want to change,' Zombie said. `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.'
Yeah, fuck that big red blobby thing, also known as "The Blob." Not a necessary component. Should probably be reinterpreted as maybe a large, ruthless hilljack who calls himself "The Blob." That's only logical.
