"I'd been looking to break out of the horror genre, and this really is a science fiction movie about a thing from outer space. I intend to make it scary, and the great thing is, I have the freedom once again to take it in any crazy direction I want to. Even more than 'Halloween', where I had to deal with accepted iconic characters like Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. 'The Blob' is more concept than specific storyline with characters, so I can go nuts with it. My intention is not to have a big red blobby thing ... I have a totally different take, one that's pretty dark."

Oooooh! A dark gray blobby thing, then? Damn, Rob: If you're going to break out of the horror genre, why not try a romantic comedy? Or a holocaust drama? Because a sci-fi movie about a giant glob of wet goo attacking and killing people sounds an awful lot like a horror movie.

Actually, if Zombie wanted to capitalize on both the remake and on 80s nostalgia, he could make, Play-Doh's The Blob. To play with, not to eat!
