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.
As a Theater patron in the second row, left of center, during the wide shot of the Theater audience reacting to an on-screen fright.
That's a first down. Ball at a thirty five-yard line.
When Meg and the two boys are running to leave the theatre through the side exit, you can see the Steadicam operator's shadow on the door they go through while the projector is flashing.
[unused disclaimer, written for end titles; ended up on cutting-room floor] THE BLOB contains a purely fictional account of a small group of ruthless and corrupt military agents. These characters do not represent the United States government, and it would be erroneous and unfair to suggest that they do. The vast majority of North American Armed Forces personnel have demonstrated the utmost moral sense, regard for civilian welfare, and worthiness of the public trust.
Some prints contain an alternate version of Eddie's death; in the DVD print, he rises from the water appearing to be a mass of decayed grey flesh. In the alternate version, he rises from the water as a completely skinless, but obviously human, corpse.
