The Blob

Fifty eight year old teenager Steve McQueen is out on a date when he sees a meteor falling to the Earth and decides to go find it. Like all movie meteors, it lands near a house out in the middle of nowhere so the hillbilly who lives there can be consumed by whatever comes out of the meteor.
In this case what comes out is a blob, which terrorizes the nearby town and only the elderly teenagers are smart enough to understand what's going on.
The Blob is very sixties and entertaining enough but I can't think of much to say about it. The blob itself is sufficiently gross looking, like it's made of gelatin and jam and blood. And it's a scary enough threat since it can get through even the smallest of cracks and, like The Thing That Ate Everyone, it'll eat anyone.

End of line.
