It's perhaps debatable just how well remembered the 1958 version The Blob would be if it hadn't been shot in colour, which kept it in decent timeslots on TV long after many of its black and white contemporaries in the low-budget teen sci-fi market were relegated to the Late Late Late Show, and if its `cast of exciting young people' wasn't headlined by one Steven McQueen a couple of years before he'd drop the 'N' and really harness his mojo. He's certainly not a likely bet for future superstardom here as the nice but awkward kid who keeps on getting into trouble, but he's still head and shoulders above his stilted leading lady Aneta Corsault, but this is the kind of film that no-one in the original 50s audience went to see for the human stars but for its flesh-absorbing gelatinous mean red mother from outer space that starts off by feeding on the local hermit who finds it inside a meteorite, follows his entrée with the doctor and nurse who try to help him and then builds up enough of an appetite to take on a cinema full of teens watching the midnight spook show in the film's most memorable setpiece. It may lack personality, its nature deliberately undefined beyond its ability to absorb anything organic it comes into contact with, but it was a unique and refreshing change from men in monster suits.Read more ›

The Criterion Collection version of The Blob is worth the purchase as they took great effort to give you al the DVD goodies that enhance your viewing pleasure. Be aware that there are other DVD and VHS versions that are not up to par.

Steve McQueen as Steve Andrews and Anete Corsaut as Jane Martin (also Helen Crump in The Andy Griffith Show) are supposed to be teenagers; they are negotiating in a quiet parking place in a convertible, when a shooting star lands quite close. Naturally this is more interesting to them than what they were about to do; so they go to investigate. An old man gets to the site first and poking around with a stick gets blobulated. And maybe his little dog too. Things really get sticky from that point with no one to believe them as kids don't know nothing.

If you like this movie then the next one to see is a variation called "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" It takes the same theme to absurdity.

While the package itself was pretty good (when I eventually got it), the film itself isn't great. It's too slow and nothing really much happens in it, and there is sadly little blob action. Still worth one watch though (especially for Steve McQueen fans), as it is an entertaining movie, but sadly not much else.
