I was sure I ordered this movie (the Blob) in DVD.
Imagine my surprise when a VHS copy arrived.
From now on, no buying a movie without being 100% sure on its format.
Now I will have to find a VHS player before I can watch it.

The quality of the image on this DVD is terrible! Blurry, it looks like a bad copy from a VHS tape. I know it was inexpensive, but I would have paid more for a better quality DVD or Blu-Ray had one been available from Amazon at the time. The 1958 Blob is a great ol' flick, but I couldn't recommend this copy of it to anyone.

This DVD of "The Blob" looks like a transfer from VHS with no DVD goodies.

However if you are only watching The blob once in a while and just want one for your collection this version will work. However for real Blob'rs I suggest the Criterion version.

Steve McQueen as Steve Andrews and Anete Corsaut as Jane Martin (also Helen Crump in The Andy Griffith Show) are negotiation in a quiet place in a convertable. When a shooting star lands quite close. Naturally this is more interesting and they go to investigate. An old man beats them to the sight and poking around gets blobulated. Things really get sticky from that point with none to believe them as kids don't know nothing.

If you like this movie then the next one to see is a variation called "Killer Klowns from Outer Space"

This is the apex of '50s sci-fi camp. Quite correctly, amazon.com has this listed as Sci-fi/Comedy. Unlike many old sci-fi flicks that take themselves seriously, this film goes with the goofy flow, and occasionally laughs at itself. An indestructible mass from outer space absorbs humans, and grows gigantic. One great moment is the scene at the local theater. As the teenagers sit, engrossed in a spook show marathon, the gelatinous mass gobbles the projectionist and oozes through the projection room windows. It dribbles through the theater and out the double doors into the street, finally causing mass panic. This movie memory is part of '50s baby boomer folklore. Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut run around town trying to persuade the adults that a monster is on the loose, and, no, it's not a teenage prank. The chasm separating adults and teenagers impedes the kids' ability to serve as the community's monster-attack warning system. The adults in this movie are straight from the "Ward and June Clever" profile. Another hilarious moment unfolds thus: running out into the street in his sleeper PJs, Ignatz (or is his name Danny?), Corsaut's annoying little brother, fires his cap pistol at the Blob. When the caps are gone, the kid throws the toy gun at the monster, the old movie Western standby. The snappy little rock-n-roll song above the opening credits sets the proper mood. The oddly effective blend of spine-tingling suspense and bizarre humor make this one a winner. Great fun for collectors and nostalgia buffs. ;-)

By the mid 1950s, it was pretty much taken for granted that the youth of that decade were little more than an undisciplined, unruly horde of kids who preferred to raise hell every Saturday night. The rock and roll lyrics of Elvis and the black leather outfits of bikers in films like THE WILD ONE stood as ikons for an entire generation of boog-a-looing teenagers. THE BLOB was one of the few films of that era that dared to buck this trend by portraying teens in a more intelligent, more perceptive light.
Steve McQueen plays Steve, a teen who has the same sort of parents that James Dean had in REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE. They are totally dense about who their son is and what his generation can do. Steve's girlfriend is demurely played by Aneta Corseaut, who went on to fame as the girlfriend of television's Sheriff Andy Taylor. The plot begins with the fall to earth of a meteorite that is poked and prodded by the kind of country bumpkin that the audience is shouting at not to do that, but he does. A slimy gooey slithering mass of red jello attaches itself to his arm. Steve finds this poor unfortunate and brings him to the local doctor who also winds up as the blob's latest meal. As the blob eats, it gets bigger. The fun starts when the teens, led by a very earnest-sounding Steve, try to convince the town that it is in imminent peril. Of course the elders of the town ridicule his claim of a rolling blob of carnivorous jello. It is only when the Blob enters a movie theater and begins to swallow the patrons that the sheriff believes. By sheer luck, Steve and his girlfriend discover that intense cold is the key to killing the creature. The blob is quickly killed and a sense of normalcy returns.

Who would think Andy Griffith's "Helen Crump" (Aneta Corsaut) had a Steve McQueen movie in her past? But that is only one of several weird and wonderful things about the ultimate 1950s teenagers-battle-creatures movie, which might best be described as Rebel Without A Cause meets God Knows What From Outer Space. The Rebel is Steven McQueen (who would shortly decide that "Steve" sounded less prissy), a good boy with just enough wild to be interesting; the very wholesome yet understanding girlfriend is the aforementioned Aneta Corsaut. It was bad enough when their date was disrupted by teenage hot-rodders, but they are considerably more nonplussed when they encounter a gelatinous, man-eating What Is It that rides down to earth on its own hotrod meteor--and begins gobbling up townfolk right and left. But will the grown ups believe them? Of course not, what do they know, they're just kids!
The movie is teeny bopper at its teeny bopping best. The actors take the rather pretentious script very seriously, with many a soulful look into each other eyes, and the "adult" supporting cast probably says "Kids!" very third sentence or so. But the real pleasure of the film its creature, which is well imagined, well-executed, and often manages to generate a surprising degree of suspense. And although clearly on the cheap side (check out those miniture sets, guys!), THE BLOB is actually a fairly well-made film--and there's that catchy little theme song thrown in for good measure. The 40-plus crowd (myself included) will enjoy the movie as nostalgia, but that won't prevent them from hooting right along with the younger set at its whole-milk-and-white-bread 1950s sensibility, and the film would be a great choice for either family-movie night or a more sophistocated "grown ups only" get together. Make plenty of Jello cubes for movie snacking!
