I was in Nifty Fifties in 8th grade, a cheesey musical, and we did a song about the blob.

I'm trying to remember it. xD

I never saw it. But my uncle did the movie contracts for it. Which I never knew, until for his birthday, I sent him the Golden Turkeys album (i.e., theme songs from movies that won the 'award' as worst of the year). He then called and sang me the theme song, Beware of the Blob. "It leaps, and it creeps..." This is still in my head from over 10 years ago. Oh but I always mispronounced it and would say "Beware of the Blop."

it's pretty much on the same par as.... The attack of the mutant zombie elderly... ahhh he's in a walker, i better... walk faster than him. I guess maybe some guy in a wheelchair might suck if he got going downhill to catch you... or the super slow explosion from invader zim...

The 80s remake had better special effects and the blob LUNGED if you were close by. I always liked the blob because it was a movie monster that you can't really anthropomorphize. Nobody makes it into a sparkly romantic character like vampires, werewolves, or Frankenstein's monster.

Yeah, the Blob was sort of lame, but I still think having it come out of the projection room in the theater and start eating all the viewers was a stroke of genius.  If you saw it in the theater, I am sure it gave you the heebie jeebies.  And yes the Blob was actually fairly fast if it wanted to be.  When you think about it it isn't a lot different than alien symbiote from the SpiderMan storyline.

For lame stories try "Day of the Triffids"  OK I understand that everyone is blind, but COME ON!  These are walking plants for crying out loud.  And how do we defeat them?  A firehose and salt water.  I am sure that worked really well in Kansas.

Anyone watch "The Birds" recently?  Now THAT is stupid people!  I hear a strange noise in the attic, let me go up there and open the door.  See a bunch of birds, but STILL GO INSIDE.  Then shut the door and forget how to turn the doorknob (or accidentally lock yourself in the attic).  Oh, and fall in front of th door so when they come to try and save me they have to push my unconcious body with the door. OK now we are ready to escape.  Lets see the old steel hardtop pickup truck or the cloth top convertible.  Lets use the cloth top.  Birds can't attack through that.  Then there is the whole gas station scene with the cigarette.  "Hmm, I smell gas, well it is a gas station, time to light up." BOOM!  Darwin Award winners every one.   ::)

Huh, and I used to think the Birds was a great horror film.

Did anyone look to see if the Blob was directed by Alan Smithee?

John Carpenter's The Thing   is another one of those. Also a great movie!

For some reason I am thinking about "The Chicken Heart"  Any of you Bill Cosby fans?

"It's in your home state. BA BUMP BA BUMP BA BUMP It's outside of your door! BA BUMP BA BUMP BA BUMP And it's going to eat you up!  OHHhh, I started smearing my Jello all over the floor!  I set the sofa on fire!  Won't come where there is smoke, fire, and Jello! BA BUMP BA BUMP"  ;D

I also found the original Lights Out radio program that Cosby based his joke on.  Enjoy.

Now I am reminded of the movie The Stuff. Michael Moriarty, Garret Morris, and who knows else. It came to be eaten, and then take over the world!
Have Fun
