It's exuberant and extraordinary, and just nasty enough.

The Blob is one of those B-movies that will always inhabit a warm little nook in the affections of SF fans but, truth be told, it's never quite as fun as it should be.

Arriving from outer space (for which read Russia), a large ball of interstellar snot terrorises a small American town by eating everything in sight.

Unfortunately, [Harris's] picture talks itself to death, even with the blob nibbling away at everybody in sight. And most of his trick effects, under the direction of Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr., look pretty phony.

Semi-classic 50s sci-fi thanks to McQueen and above par script.

The Blob is an inane but entertaining 1950s horror cult-film favorite that was made for a mere $240,000.

...if a vote were taken for the silliest sci-fi horror movie ever made, the original 1958 version of "The Blob" would come out pretty high on the list.
