Neither the acting nor direction is particularly creditable.

...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.
| Original Score: 5/10

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.

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.

...there's something charming about it, as if all the tacky aspects of the 1950s (and again, I'm talking about the white, squeaky clean, small town 1950s) were distilled into a fast-moving 86 minutes.

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