Did You Know? 1

Did you know?  I'm currently in the middle of production on a short silent film which is not an officially numbered part of the BLOB series, but features BLOB!!  The short is written by my good friend Brett Heasman, author of 'The Self-Combusting Hedgehog', a stageplay I acted in back in 2008.  Brett was also the composer of the organ music for 'Vampire Blob: Silent Fangs of Horror'.  

The silent short, as yet officially untitled (although one working title that was thrown around was 'The Road to Enlightenment is a Murky Water'), tells the story of a young man who is bored with life's monotony, until it is invaded by a rather familiar character (our own Hero BLOB himself!), who changes his life forever.

Now I know that you're all concerned with the continuity of this film, and where it could fit in the BLOB saga.  In terms of chronology, it's all up in the air, but in terms of canonicity, I can tell you your two options on how to view the film.  

1: It does not fit into the canon.  After all, BLOB seems to be a figment of the imagination of the main character of this film, and he is actually helpful (which he rarely is in the canonical BLOB series).


2: BLOB seems to be a figment of the main character's imagination because he is secretly living inside the character's brain in liquid form, and is causing synapse misfires, driving the man slightly insane.  I think I prefer this option, but hey, it's still early, and the principal photography hasn't even been completed yet.

But possibly the most exciting news for you BLOB fans is that the film has precipitated the creation of BLOB Helmet Mark III, a new helmet for a new year!  This helmet, which fully covers the face (unlike BLOB Helmet Mark II, as seen in Hero BLOB IX: Wrath of the Tuna Queen), was retrofitted from Vampire Blob Helmet Mark II (as seen in Silent Fangs of Horror, which in turn had been retrofitted from BLOB Helmet Mark II.

So look forward to this new film offering in the near future!!
