Chester (Godfrey Cambridge) has spent the last 3 months on an oil rig in the Arctic Sea, and now he's back and his wife Mariane (Marlene Clark) couldn't be happier - but still, she won't accept that container he brought from his trip explicitely stating "Keep Frozen" in her freezer next to the food. She'd better though, as soon some red slime with a mind of its own (apparently) escapes from it.

Lisa (Gwynne Gilford) wants to organize a surprise party for her boyfriend Bobby (Robert Walker jr), but when she drops by Chester and Mariane's place to fetch her present for Bobby, she sees the two of them being devoured by the same red slime, henceforth "the Blob". She fetches Bobby, but once he checks out the situation, the Blob is long gone, and the Sheriff (Richard Webb) they have called doesn't believe a thing - unsurprisingly. But even the Sheriff has to admit: There is a surprisingly high number of disappearances in his town tonight.

After all of this, Lisa only wants to go home ... but she has totally forgotten the surprise party, which really takes the life out of her way too soon, so Bobby agrees to drive her to a quiet place, but everywhere they go, the Blob turns up, continually growing in size. Despite his earlier reservations regarding the Blob, Bob and Lisa try to track the sheriff down in the local bowling alley, not expecting the Blob to make an entrance there ... but he does, devouring a good number of the customers before cornering Bobby and Lisa in the neighbouring soon-to-be ice rink. It's only when Bobby turns on the freezer that he manages to actually deep freeze the Blob.

Director Larry Hagman has a guest spot as a hobo, sharing a scene with Burgess Meredith.

 

The original The Blob is a somewhat overrated on 1950's monster cinema that might be based on a good premise, but the execution is neither good nor unintentionally funny enough to really strike gold. Beware! The Blob very obviously pushes for the funny side of things as it's a self-consciously schlocky film in which the actual narrative takes backseat behind many quite hilarious (and intentionally so) scenes of Blob attacks, a film that tries to make up for its poor special effects with wit, for its formulaic story with a tongue-in-cheek approach. That all said, the film doesn't always succeed, and sometimes it seems the cast seems to have had much more fun on set than the audience, but it still comes off as a pointless yet chuckle-worthy little genre flick.

Nothing great, but definitely with entertainment value, and some scenes that you might remember for quite some time, actually.
