The Blob (1958) – Fun Filled Cheezy “Horror”

There’s something to be said about many of the Sci-Fi/horror films of the 1950s. They usually have some sort of charm and 1958’s The Blob is no exception.

Taking place on one long night in July, 1957, in a small Pennsylvania town after a meteorite strikes and it’s contents, a gelatinous substance proceeds to start engulfing the town’s residents, starting with the old farmer that first discovers it. A couple of local teens discover the farmer, his hand engulfed in the goo, and rush him to the town’s doctor. Soon the doctor and his nurse, as well as the affected farmer are all absorbed by this monster. The teens are of course are not believed until it’s too late and the creature… the Blob has grown to epic proportions.

This is a cool, fun old film that deserves to be watched by any fan of the old “Creature Feature” films. This film starts the late, great Steve McQueen.Make sure you check out this film, as I believe that it’s available freely on the Net in streaming format.

Here is the trailer:
