A shapeless lifeform from a fallen meteor is feeding off the unsuspecting inhabitants of a small town. It is up to a teenage couple to warn their neighbors of the danger from outer space. One of the great cult classics, "The Blob" melds '50s schlock sci-fi and teen delinquency pics even as it transcends these genres with strong performances and knockout special effects. "The Blob" helped launch the careers of superstud Steve McQueen and future "Andy Griffith Show" girlfriend Aneta Corsault.
