Unlike the torpid pace of the 1958 original, the 1988 remake of B-movie horror classic The Blob
puts a slasher flick-ish pep in its step, as the amorphous mass from outer space devours helpless humans in all sorts of gruesome ways. (Sucked down a sink? Check.) Brian Posehn, of Comedy Central's The Sarah Silverman Program , selected this oozy movie as his pick for this month's installment of Cinefamily's "Comedy Death-Ray" series, a celluloid spin-off of the legendary Tuesday night show at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Director Chuck Russell, despite helming the awesomest entry in the Nightmare on Elm Street series, 1987's Dream Warriors , leaves plenty to mock, from the state-of-the-'80s special effects to dialogue so cheesy you'll think Velveeta co-produced. Remember: "Terror ... has no shape."
