Great Moments In Horror Hair History: Kevin Dillon In ‘The Blob’ (1988)

Easily one of my favorite horror remakes of all time is 1988’s, The Blob.  So many reasons for this statement:  Shawnee Smith, the sink drain kill scene, Shawnee Smith, the kid getting demolished by The Blob in the sewer, Shawnee Smith, the amazing retro vibe that the movie has, and of course – Shawnee Smith.  Yes, I had a small crush on her back in the days.  But one moment trumps all of these things.  One thing so spectacular….so breathtakingly special….so inspiring and monumental that words can’t do it any justice.  I’m talking about………

………Kevin Dillon’s hair!!!!  Oh yeah.  The mullet was still all the rage in 1988, but let’s be serious here – the mullet never loses it’s hypnotic luster.  I recently sat down with The Blob again and found myself getting lost in those dreamy locks, and it proved to be quite distracting.  How the hell am I supposed to watch Paul get swallowed up by The Blob when all I can think about is when Kevin Dillon’s hair will come back onscreen and grace us with it’s presence. It’s definitely a problem.  I manage though, and get through the whole movie but find myself having mullet withdrawals afterwards.  And it’s because of this, that Kevin Dillion is undoubtedly part of the ‘Great Moments In Horror Hair History‘ club!  Is there anything you’d like to add to this post, Shawnee Smith?
