Rob Zombie Takes On The Blob | IshTalkers
So it is the Blob with out a Blob? WTF? Leave the movie alone Zombie! We already had a Blob remake in the 80s. It was pretty good. More graphic than the original as you see people dissolve some. Hell even the movie Phantoms is a bit of a knock off. We DON'T NEED another version of the Blob!
Well, he said he didn't want it to look like the 50s Blob not that there wouldn't be a blob.
I finally saw his remake of Halloween last night and spent half the night ramming my head against the wall and the other half bored to tears. So the Blob won't be a blob, Rob? What's it gonna be? Tyler Mane? Or your annoying-ass wife?
Perhaps it'll be a biting political commentary where Rush Limbaugh seeps into peoples homes and cars through their radio speakers and dissolves their brains?
I had a similar idea, only it involved Michael Moore.
Maybe the blob could be Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore, fused together as a result of some sort of toxichemicalnuclear disaster. It won't matter where you are on the political spectrum, you will be afraid.
I shat myself. Maybe Rob Zombie can make a good horror film after all. Also, seriously, your name is Rob Zombie, live up to that namesake and make something worthwhile. I've not seen The Devil's Rejects, though I've wanted to. Still Hoouse of 1000 Corpses may be the worst film I've ever seen, and I sat through ROTF and Rise of Cobra.
Now thats a remake Ill watch.
Wait, I thought Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore were skin suits worn by Fred Savage?
House of 1000 Corpses was just awful, and the Halloween remake wasn't much to speak of (though it was better than any of the sequels to the original). Rejects was pretty good... well, maybe 'good' isn't the right word, but I enjoyed it and it at least had some style and technique and ideas to speak of.
I'm torn on whether I'd rather see him do originals or remakes, as his only film that I liked was an original, but his other original was also his worst. I do think The Blob is a better fit for him than Halloween, though. The campiness of the source material seems more suited to his style than something more 'serious' like Halloween.
I agree that why is it he put his wife in every movie he makes..good Lord she can't act the worth of damn. Come on Zombie there are actress who are far better than your wife...come on. Now Zombie's version of the Blob well that a so-so with me like one side is saying "Hell no!!!" and the other is, "Hell yes!!!" so its pretty much neutral with me. As far as I'm concern.
She's the only reason I don't watch his movies. He even manages to put her in Halloween 2 even though her character is dead, it's like he can't make a movie without giving her a part.
He should have stuck to music.
Agreed, the man can't make a good movie to save his life, or an original one at that.
Wait...I though he was remaking Tyrannosaurus Rex?
He's probably gonna give the Blob a backstory explaining that it was a redneck.
Eh. Whatever. I'll see it, I liked his Halloween remake (haven't seen the sqeuel yet.)
To every Rob Zombie joke in this thread- I c wat u did there!
I know for a fact that most of the hate for Zombie is from the pathetic ******s that either
A. Are still butt hurt over the Halloween remake.
B. Just blindly hate remakes altogether.
You guys aren't true fans of horror, or any genre for that matter. Let Zombie do his thing, you're not going to stop him, move on with your lives and learn about the art of film making, and how movies aren't designed to appeal directly to YOUR tastes.
