Scream Factory announced back in June that they would be bringing Chuck Russell's 1988 remake of The Blob to Collector's Edition Blu-ray just in time for Halloween, and today they've unveiled the release's bonus features, which include over four hours of new interviews, unseen behind-the-scenes footage with Tony Gardner and crew, and much more!
In the remake of the 1958 sci-fi horror classic about a deadly blob from another planet which consumes everything in its path, teenagers attempt without success to warn the townspeople, who refuse to take them seriously. Kevin Dillon and Shawnee Smith starred in the film.
