Unusual Sci-Fi item; good fun
3 February 2001 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

Blob movies became suddenly quite fashionable in the late fifties; this lesser-known entry offers a few unique twists. Unlike the slipping, sliding blobs of other films, this one doesn't move, apparently content to remain stationary while digesting its first two victims, a space ship and its single human occupant. It does, however, have the ability to project a forcefield which instantly disintegrates any would-be rescuers who come too close. Anyway, this film is professionally made and acted, and has its share of suspenseful sequences. And the image of the man encased in the protoplasm, his face frozen in an agonized silent scream, is a horrific one.
