3.0 out of 5 stars B-Movie Horror, 18 Jun 2012
This review is from: The Blob [1958] [DVD] (DVD)
The Blob is a classic b-movie horror and has all the flaws and idiosyncracies that implies. The acting is wooden, the effects are shoddy and the story is slim to the point of non-existent, but this is a fun ride all the same. Sometimes these films are best left in the memory than re-watched as an adult, but this one just about musters up enough nostalgic value to make it worthwhile.

In an early Steve McQueen role he atleast shows the charm and charisma he later exudes in every film, but everyone else displays the same talent most low budget movies of this era present.

The Blob is a classic monster movie which doesnt have a lot of exposition or back story to any characters and keeps things moving at a swift pace so you dont have too long to think about it.

This film is best taken for exactly what it is. A small, simple and fun film.
