The Blob

The Blob is an independently-made American science-fiction film from 1958, filmed in color and widescreen, that achieved instant success and is still recognized today partly because it starred Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut in their first film roles, and partly because it is one of the prototypes of 1950s American sci-fi films. The Blob was directed by Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr., who filmed much of the movie in Pennsylvania.

The Blob is an amorphous creature from another planet which lands on Earth encased in a meteor. It escapes, and survives and grows by absorbing any human life with which it comes in contact. A group of teenagers discover the Blob but the adults won't believe them until it is almost too late.

" 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 ingenious special effects. 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 launch the careers of superstud Steve McQueen and composer Burt Bacharach." From description of The Blob - Criterion Collection DVD.
