One of the essential horror cult classics 'The Blob' blends '50s schlock horror, sci-fi and teenage delinquency whilst retaining great special effects (for the time) and some strong acting peformances.
Steve Andrews (Steve McQueen) is out on a date with his girlfriend, Jane (Aneta Corsaut,), when the two see a 'shooting star'� crash into a hill close to where they are parked. Somewhat puzzled, Steve suggests they drive off to investigate.
Meanwhile, an old man (Olin Howlin) who lives nearby goes over to investigate for himself. He finds a small meteoroid that breaks open before his eyes, exposing a pinkish goo. When curosity gets the better of him and he pokes and prods at the goo, it envelops his arm, and he is unable to remove it. Steve and Jane arrive to discover the man screaming in pain, and drive him off to see Doc Hallen (Steven Chase). Little does anyone realise that the night's excitement is only just beginning!
Made outside of Hollywood by a maverick film distributor, a crew experienced in religious and educational shorts, and a collection of theatrical talent from Philadelphia and New York, 'The Blob' helped assist in launching the careers of Steve McQueen and composer Burt Bacharach.
