Episode Info:

What happened to you old Nickelodeon Gak? Find out on this episode of Forgotten Cinema as the Mikes take on the 1988 remake of The Blob, starring Kevin Dillon and Shawnee Smith.

Mike Field and Mike Butler talk about their love of the use of practical effects in this remake of the 1958 horror classic. The Mikes also discuss how the proliferation of slasher flicks in the 80s might have killed any hopes of success that a sci-fi alien horror remake might have had back then. Kevin Dillons mullet is also mentioned more than once.

So grab your popcorn, and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.

This episode was recommended by cinematographer and friend of the Mikes, Adrien Peng Correia. Thanks Adrien!
