A mysterious creature from another planet, resembling a giant blob of jelly, lands on earth. The people of a nearby small town refuse to listen to some teenagers who have witnessed the blob's destructive power. In the meantime, the blob just keeps on getting bigger.Written by
The firemen and a fire truck in the movie were from the Alert fire company in Saint Clair, Schuykill County, Pennsylvania. See more »
The shot of electrical wire that falls on the diner to try to stop the blob is clearly cel animation, not live-action. See more »
[after a failed attempt to kill the Blob]
The diner's on fire.
Well, can we put it out?
Any suggestions how? Anyway, there's not enough oxygen in there to keep a fire burning for 10 minutes.

I grew up in Royersford, Pa. The town where Jerry's market was. I remember my whole family going out to watch the filming. I remember a guy showing the "Blob" to me and my brothers in a bucket. I also would like to share that my mother was in the movie. Her hair style was the same as Aneta Corsaut's and she was ill one evening and they saw my mom and asked her to sit in the car with Steve Mcqueen for some shots from behind. They payed her $25.00 and gave her a story to tell until she passed away this past August. My mom was not a teenager and she was a few months from giving birth to my little sister.
