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.

...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.

One of the most personable sci-fi horror films of its generation.

The extras are slight, but America's favorite man-eating globe of gelatin has never looked better.

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.

Rebel Without a Cause for the matinee monster crowd.
