Audience Reviews for Beware! The Blob

This dire sequel to the original classic "The Blob" is just horrendous. It has bad direction, bad acting, and effects that don't even top the 1958 movie, despite being made 14 years later. A lot of the acting feels like improv by people who don't know how to improv. So you get irritatingly repeated lines "Don't go in there! Don't go in there" and "would you quit fooling around. Quit fooling around!" It begins to grate when you realize that there must've been not much in the way of script or direction from "Dallas" star Larry Hagman. A lot of the movie is played as a comedy, which would be totally acceptable if it at least brought the laughs...but it is comedy that never works. It is a total mess, and not worth seeing. See the original or the fantastic remake, skip this entirely.

It rehashes many things from the first Blob movie, while feeling a comedic redo. It doesn't really offer anything new or interesting that hasn't already been seen. The movie has a cheap feel. It's still fairly fun though.
