How do you get people to protect themselves from something they don't believe in?
Quintessential 50's monster movie with possibly the greatest opening theme song of the era. "Beware of the blob, it creeps, and leaps and glides and slides, across the floor, right through the door, and all around the wall, a splotch, a blotch, be careful of the blob!"
If a monster like the Blob having a theme song like that wasn't campy cool fun enough you also have "The King of Cool" Steve McQueen as the lead of a monster movie! Sure he's 27 years old playing a teenager, but considering the film is about a gigantic gelatinous blob I think it's acceptable to overlook his age.
Certainly not a perfect film or a great film for that matter, but it most certainly is a fun film and hell it has some cool cars in it.
