Zombie Directing The Blob?

So, apparently, it’s official that Rob Zombie is remaking the 1950’s classic The Blob. What a terrible idea this is. Out of all the people that could fuck this movie up, why did they pick Rob Zombie? I am a huge, huge, huge fan of the original classic and an even bigger fan of the 1988 update for personal reasons. But, having Zombie write and direct this will be utterly terrible, since I am sure this will be layered with crappy CGI. In the interview he states that he doesn’t want it to be a red blob, which makes me wonder what it will be… considering The Blob is about a blob. Will it not be a blog then? If that’s the case, then it shouldn’t be considered a remake but a revision. Here is to another shitty revision from the mind of Rob Zombie.

Variety covered the entire story here. It was remade in ’88 and it was surprised that it was really good for its time but since money talks nowadays, it’s sad to see so many good horror movies fall victim to their remakes.   

Oh well, what can you do?
