Forgotten Flix Podcast: Ep. 009 – The Blob (1988), aka is that a snot rocket in your pocket… or you just happy to see me?

March 30, 2011

In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, Jason and Joel discuss the 1988 horror remake of The Blob starring Kevin Dillon and Shawnee Smith.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the show:

—  First, we talk some serious “Flix It or Forget It” in which we hear Jason emoting (loudly) over a seriously good martial arts movie. Then we hear about a handful of movies Joel wishes he could forget.

— Next, we talk The Blob which includes a seriously interesting discussion of the effect that point-of-view has on horror films and our personal level of like/dislike.

— Then we get into the “6 Must See Movies with an Experiment Gone Wrong in a Small Town with Military Intervention and Lots of Deaths…”  Okay.  Seriously, there are a lot, including one of the biggest grossing franchises of all time and a movie with an ending that really sets Joel off like no other (except maybe the Star Wars prequels).

So, check it out and let us know what you think! You can send your feedback to feedback (at) forgottenflix dot com or leave a voice mail message at the number located beneath the VHS tapes.

Tune in next time when we talk about the Superman franchise with resident Superman expert Darrell.  It’s time for some serious Kryptonite discussion.
