In the opening scene, Steve an all American teenage boy (played by Steve McQueen) succeeds in convincing Jane that really cares for her, in his open top fast car (nudge, nudge, wink wink), when a meteorite suddenly crash-lands nearby. Steve and Jane then speed off in the car to investigate.
Meanwhile a curious old codger hears the meteorite and goes to check out the crater, he uses a stick to probe the thick vile viscous mass of pulsating protoplasm that oozes from the cracked meteorite. To his surprise the stuff displays a meniscus like effect and slides up the stick onto his hand and starts to assimilate his flesh at frightening speed. The old man manages to stumble onto the highway where Steve almost hits him with his car.
On seeing the state of old man, Steve and Jane decide to take him to see the Doctor. Steve sees the Blob devour the doctor and Steve’s luck runs out when he tries to convince his father and police of what just happened.
The adults think that it’s all a hoax, Steve and his close friends organise themselves to warn the townsfolk of this monster.
“The Blob” is a truly cult classic film, with a fast and furious 1950’s, Sci-Fi, Horror, blended genre, with amazing special effects for its time.
