    Looking for something to do this July? This annual event takes place in Phoenixville, PA in the theatre where part of The Blob was filmed.

    Note, special guest: The original Blob!!

    It was a good movie KK, wasn't it? We watched it last year down the shore. My oldest (tv film major) um, appreciated it. The youngest, not so much. :rolleyes:

    Steve McQueen was the bomb, hands down, no question. No one can touch his coolness. Period.

    Saw it when I was a little kid in the movie theater.

    Scared the hell out of me.

    True.

    When you're a kid things that don't exist scare you.

    When you get older reality is scary enough that you probably don't have time to be frightened of things that don't exist.

    Read something interesting in the paper the other day -- great white sharks are serial killers. They stalk their prey, and they kill repeatedly using the same pattern. I thought about that for a minute of two and wondered why no one took "JAWS" seriously......

    Jaws scared the crap outta me and I stayed out of the ocean for a long, long, long time after seeing it.
