I don't care what anybody says, I still like THE BLOB. Maybe I was just the perfect age when I saw it in the theater or it was just Kevin Dillon's majestic, epic and utterly glorious mega-mullet.....I don't know. i still like it.
Today's HorrorBid Death of the Day is "one" of my favorite scenes from the movie. I chose it not only because it's relatively short, but because it also has so much packed into such a small time frame. I won't actually go into great detail of the scene because there's a whole generation of Bidites who probably don't even know what a phonebooth is, apart from a Superman reference, and won't be able to relate to the unique feeling of being extremely well lit in a transparent glass box on a dark, seemingly abandoned street. And after this movie, the idea of some pink goo sliding down the de and entombing you was always fluttering around somewhere in your mind!
At any rate, you have to give credit to Fran Hewitt, the endearing waitress played by Candy Clark, for at least putting up a fight right to the end and not just standing there screaming like some helpless ninnie!
Okay, enough blab. Dinner time Mr. Blob.
