    "I've been following James Rolfe a.k.a. The Angry Video Game Nerd and The Blob is one of the monster films he recommended during his Monster Madness marathon. As a horror movie fan, I prefer the original The Blob from 1958. Sure, you have complex plot and gore from the remake but the original one is more solid when it comes to the storytelling."

    "The Blob is a great remake, but it doesn't come near to the fun of the original. It is an enjoyable film to see a single time, but it would probably not be worth owning as it wouldn't have many repeat viewings."

    "I barely remembered this movie from when I was young, and caught it recently on late night TV. I was surprised how well it holds up, it's actually really well-made and creepy."
