A mysterious creature from another planet, resembling a giant blob of jelly, lands on earth. The people of a nearby small town refuse to listen to some teenagers who have witnessed the blob's destructive power. In the meantime, the blob just keeps on getting bigger.Written by
This independent production was originally picked up by Paramount Pictures for use on the bottom half of a double bill with Paramount's production, I Married a Monster from Outer Space (1958). Early marketing tests and initial bookings indicated that a larger share of the ticket buyers were coming for this film rather than the top-billed picture, so it became the main feature and more money was spent on its promotion.

If you are a fan of old science fiction, horror, and monster movies and you haven't seen the blob yet, you definitely need to! Being one of the first monster movies I ever saw as a kid, this film holds a dear place in my heart. I always loved the simplicity of it, a blob of jelly that seems to have a mind of its own and is completely unstoppable. It absorbs all living matter, causing it to become bigger and to even apparently change colors. The movie is terrifying, hilarious, and just down right unusual. It's great for the whole family, especially on those late night spooktaculars!
