Blu-Ray & DVD The Criterion Collection Brings 1958 Horror Classic ‘The Blob’ to (UK) Blu-Ray Published 2 months ago on October 3, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Irvin Yeaworth and Russell Doughten’s 1958 cult horror classic The Blob is coming to Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom via The Criterion Collection on December 3, 2018, with a high-definition digital restoration. Head on down to check out the cover artwork and special bonus features, including a direct pre-order link RIGHT HERE! Synopsis: “The Blob follows the havoc wreaked on a small town by an outer-space monster with neither soul nor vertebrae, with Steve McQueen (The Great Escape) playing the rebel teen who tries to warn the residents about the jellylike invader. Strong performances and ingenious special effects help The Blob transcend the schlock sci-fi and youth delinquency genres from which it originates. Made outside of Hollywood by a maverick film distributor and a crew whose credits mostly comprised religious and educational shorts, The Blob helped launch the careers of McQueen and composer Burt Bacharach, whose bouncy title song is just one of this film’s many unexpected pleasures.” SPECIAL FEATURE CONTENTS: New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Two audio commentaries: one by producer Jack H. Harris and film historian Bruce Eder and the other by director Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr. and actor Robert Fields Trailer Blobabilia!, a gallery of collector Wes Shank’s rare trove of stills, posters, props (including the blob itself!) and other ephemera PLUS: An essay by critic Kim Newman You can pre-order your copy of The Blob on Blu-Ray from Amazon.co.uk.
