Monsters and Matinees: ‘The Blob’ is based on a what?!

Classic Movie Hub Blog Posted by Toni Ruberto on Jul 11, 2020

‘The Blob’ is based on a what?! “Do you know the movie The Blob, Aunt Toni?” I’ve never heard a sweeter question than that one recently asked by my 11-year-old niece, Grace. As classic movie fans, we all hope to inspire younger generations to discover classic f read more

The Blob, 1958, Irwin S. Yeaworth

Criterion Blues Posted by Aaron West on Apr 12, 2015

Apr 12 Posted by aaronwest As I watched the original version of The Blob, I was surprised to find that it is just as much a teenpic as a monster movie. In some respects, the teenage themes were even more integral to the story. The monster was as much a vehicle to showcase adolescent insecurity, con read more

Classic Films in Focus: THE BLOB (1958)

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on Dec 9, 2014

Science fiction movies of the 1950s offer plenty of strange alien menaces, but The Blob (1958) features one of the very strangest. You wouldn't think an oozy sphere would provide much of a threat, but the title monster of this cult classic is as mindless and unrelenting as death itself, an utterly i read more

“Fabulous Films of the ’50s” – THE BLOB (1958), a mass of contradiction

Once Upon a Screen Posted by Aurora on May 22, 2014

I was sitting in my living room a few days ago with the screen door wide open.  It was a quiet, sunny day.  Quiet, that is, until the guys that cut the lawn showed up.  While I can handle the noise of the mowers without a problem, the moment they went on Kiki – my cat – ran to hide read more

The Blob (1988, Chuck Russell)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Mar 8, 2014

The Blob is a mixed bag. On one hand, director Russell does a good job throughout and he and Frank Darabont’s script is well-plotted. On the other hand, the script will occasionally have some idiotic dialogue and the actors just stumble and fall through it. Similarly the special effects. Ther read more

The Blob (1958)

The Best Picture Project Posted by Alyson on Oct 24, 2013

I believe 1958’s The Blob was my introduction to two wonderful things: 1950’s monster movies and Steve McQueen.  The Blob was McQueen’s first lead role in a film and helped propel him to stardom.  Though he was twenty-seven during filming, he plays a teenager, doing all the things teens did read more
