The Blob Blu-ray Artwork Creeps In & Special Features Are Announced

Twilight Time revealed its package art for The Blob Blu-ray arriving on October 14th. With it, a breakdown of the special features. The distributor is planning a run of only 5,000 of these. They’ll be up for pre-order on September 24th at ScreenArchives.com. As I mentioned in an earlier news item, this Blu-ray will feature a newly restored print from Sony.
If you’ve never seen this ’88 film, now’s the time to check it out. It’s a great re-imagining of The Blob spearheaded by director Chuck Russell and writers Russell and Frank Darabont. Saw’s Shawnee Smith stars along with Kevin Dillon.

Twilight Time Has a Killer October Blu-ray Line-Up

The reps over at Twilight Time have given Shock the heads-up that it has a handful of new titles making their way to Blu-ray this October. Twilight Time is one of those specialty Blu-ray outfits that occasionally release very limited runs of some of your favorite titles (like, Fright Night for instance).
Coming October 14th, you can expect: Audrey Rose, The Believers, The Blob and The Vanishing (’93).
