Frank Darabont's 'Blob' remake hitting blu-ray ... for a limited time

The Blob remake, written by Frank Darabont, is considered to be one of the best remakes of all time. It took a gorier and grotesque spin on its original counterpart and became somewhat of a cult classic.

Of course, there hasn’t been a home video release of the 1988 movie since 2001, and fans have been demanding that it gets the treatment it deserves. Well, the fans have been heard and they will finally get their wish -- kind of.

Unfortunately, for a movie that is high in demand, The Blob (a Twilight Time release) will retail for around $30 and be limited to 3000 copies. And in limited edition fashion, they will sell out very quickly and then surface on eBay for an insane amount of money.

Twilight Time hasn’t announced when they will be this remake starring Saw’s Shawnee Smith and Kevin Dillon, and directed by Chuck Russell, but you can guarantee it won’t last long.
