Goofs

During the scene with "the naked Turk" in the bathroom, the Blob has supposedly eaten his dog off screen. When the Turk throws the telephone through the window so he can escape, you can see the dog is gone BUT the Blob is still the same size as it was before it ate the dog. See more »

Worst Product Placement For Jelly (Or Jell-O For American Readers) EVER
11 July 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

A technician brings a frozen specimen of the original Blob back from the North Pole. When his wife accidentally defrosts the thing, it terrorizes the populace, including the local hippies, kittens, and bowlers.

Basically This Film Is The Corniest Thing I've Ever Seen On Film And I Sat Through "Howard The Duck" Without Problems. I Feel As If The Movie's Awfulness Speaks For Itself. A Giant Blob Eating Everyone. To Be Honest I Have Never Seen The Original And This Was Crap.

The Funniest Part Was When This Fat Guy Gets Attacked By The Blob And Runs Down The Street Naked And A Cop Drives Up And The Fat Guy Says "Your Just The Man I Wanna See" And The Cop Replies "Your Just The Guy I Wanna See Too". If MST3K Had This I Bet That They'd Yell Out "If I Comment It'd Just Make Me Look Sad".

Overall I Really Can't Describe The Movie's Awfulness Without The Readers Of This Viewing Because Ever For A Movie Entitled "Son Of Blob" You Wouldn't Believe Me.
