Great Special Effects even now in 2017
on 25 March 2017
I simply cannot believe this film was a flop back in the day. I found it languishing on late night tv as a youth & was a fan from the start. Even now almost 25 years on the special effects are great, by great I mean, they work. You don't roar with laughter at a supposedly scary scene that has aged really badly & is now funny cos it's so bad (like some early CGI now looks) I mean there are obviously a few aged ropey green screen scenes in there but it's an older film now. The film it's self gets going quite quick and we see this blob thing going on a gory kill fest and the special effects really do work well especially for 1988 & for once in a horror film don't think if you're a kid you're safe as unusually for a horror film a kid of about 12 gets it in this film & the don't spare us on the gore when he gets it either . It's a shame there is no Director's commentary on either the blu ray or the DVD but at least it's now available because for a long time it was deleated as they call it, or just bloody hard to find. Anyway anyone who is a horror fan & 80s horror fan especially should get this in their collection...it's brilliant!!
