I had no idea that this movie even existed
25 March 2005 | by jazzman_2002usSee all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the original movie in 58 so when I saw that there was another movie made in 72 I just had to get it. I was pretty happy with it. I am just a fan of terrible movies like that. I thought it had some pretty good actors in it. I find it funny that the actors that in movies like this are usually not found in A list movies. Maybe it is a coincidence I guess. Well anyway I thought that Beware! The Blob was great and I am really excited about the 2005 version just to see what they come up with this time. Maybe they will have another meteor crash. Or maybe they will have what was left over in the last one from 88 that was in that jar that the character that was played by Del Close escape that jar and go on a rampage. Who knows???????????????????
