The Blob

I remember the first time I saw The Blob (58) it was on the afternoon movie on WVEC-13 in Chesapeake, Virginia in the late seventies.

I haven't seen it since then- though I've seen the 1988 remake a few times- and I figured tonight was a good night for it.

It holds up pretty well, amorphous alien thing versus a bunch of hot roddin' small town teens. and the effects are still effective, with more than one instance of "how'd they do that?".

Now, I think, at some point in the next eleven months, I need to see Beware The Blob! , because nothing says quality cinema like a sequel directed by Larry Hagman (Yes, JR).
