I recommend just watching this for the experience. What was surely considered to be a scary movie back in the 1950's is in this day and age quite amusing but nevertheless still very entertaining. It may have been predictable but the acting was pretty good even if the teenagers were played by full grown adults (Steve McQueen's character looked the same age as the police officers) and some of the em... read more

Hooray for this. 50s drive in film makers had come up with all sorts of stupid ideas for people to half ignore while they make out. Things like teenage warewolves, coccaine fiends and a myriad of genetic mutations courtesy of the a-bomb. They must have been out of ideas. What do we do now? How about a green thing what looks like a giant booger and sort of grows and grows and terrorizes some town. ... read more

A big giant glob of pink snot that only gets bigger & bigger as the movies progresses.
Could somebody hand me over a city-sized piece of tissue, please?

A mysterious creature from another planet, resembling a giant blob of jelly, lands on earth. The people of a nearby small town refuse to listen to some teenagers who have witnessed the blob's destructive power. In the meantime, the blob just keeps on getting bigger.

"12.4. Steve McQueenin tähdittämässä hirviökauhussa avaruusmönjä alkaa assimiloida paikallisen pikkukaupungin väestöä itseensä. Viranomaiset eivät halua uskoa asiasta perillä olevia nuoria, koska nuoret ovat perseestä. Hyvällä tavalla camp elokuva viehättää kökköydessään ja tarjoilee oikein hauskat 85 minuuttia typerää hirviökauhua, jossa ainoastaan kylmä voi pysäyttää kohti valuvan punaisen mönjän (kommunismin). Kylmänpelostaan huolimatta otus yrittää tietysti"

"First viewing - May 14th I thought The Blob was fun & solidly entertaining. The cast is a mixed bag and it rarely rises above being a B-movie, but for what it is I enjoyed it. I didn't realize it was shot not too far away from me, but now that I know there's an annual celebration called Blobfest where they recreate the scene with everyone fleeing the theatre combined with a film festival I'll have to attend in the near future. Sounds like a fun time."

" LAST WATCHED: 4/26/2017Cheesy, but highly entertaining. I've heard excellent things about the 1988 remake, so I'm looking forward to finding that one and watching it for comparison."

Scarier Than Fiction (55 movies items)

"Believe it or not, The Blob is based on a New York Times article from 1950 titled, "A ‘Saucer’ Floats to Earth And a Theory Is Dished Up." The story followed four Philadelphia police officers who came into contact with a strange gooey material, which is now believed to be "Star Jelly," a transparent gelatinous substance. When one of the officers tried to move the goo, it started to dissolve and evaporate, so there was nothing to show the FBI when they arrived on the scene except a spot on th"
