So much fun to see Steve McQueen in a 50s shlocky horror film
It’s silly in every possible way and I love it. Actually kind of spooky at times.
Let’s be frank- it’s not scary, but it’s such a fun and original monster that we can forgive it enough to enjoy it
A late 50's horror flick that still holds up as far as being a fun movie. The acting is good and the film is well paced.
Just fantastic. I couldn’t believe how good this was. Smart script and dialogue help raise this above a standard B-movie creature feature.
It’s about as good as can be for a film where a slime monster eats people.
For me this is the epitome of 50s horror. You can take that for better or for worse, but you’ll at least get some good laughs.
Not the best. But enjoyable on first viewing. Unlikely to watch again.
It’s the perfect movie to have on with a group of friends who don’t take things too seriously. After all, the film won’t either. 6/10
Classic horror with all the camp that entails.
A drive-in favorite, this sci-fi classic follows teenagers Steve and his best girl, Jane, as they try to protect their hometown from a gelatinous alien life form that engulfs everything it touches. The first to discover the substance and live to tell about it, Steve and Jane witness the blob destroying an elderly man, then it growing to a terrifying size. But no one else has seen the goo, and policeman Dave refuses to believe the kids without proof.
A technician brings a frozen specimen of the original Blob back from the North Pole. When his wife accidentally defrosts the thing, it terrorizes the populace-- the local hippies, cops, drunks and bowlers must all face the Blob!
