Editorial Reviews

The Blob returns--more outrageous than ever in this 1972 sequel to the popular sci-fi classic! Plenty of familiar faces, including Larry Hagman (who also directed), Burgess Meredith, Dick Van Patten, Robert Walker and Shelly Berman, add to the fun. A geologist (Godfrey Cambridge) unwittingly brings home an unusual frozen piece of debris from the North Pole. But when it accidentally thaws, the hungrier-than-ever blood-red Blob comes to life again, consuming nearly everyone in its path and terrorizing the town. No one is safe as it crawls into a bowling alley and oozes its way across an ice rink, becoming grotesquely bloated with the blood of its victims. Can this bizarre creature ever be stopped?!

Customer Reviews

The story also has many useless moments and senarios.
Lunar Strain
So, when watching this movie, just sit back and try not to think too much.

What made the movie scary is that you didn't always seethe monster.

Cindy Williams, Shelley Berman, Dick van Patten, Burgess Meredith and other familiar faces get together in this direct sequel to the original Steve McQueen movie. The original blob was taken to the frozen north. An oil worker finds something strange in the permafrost and brings it home where his wife doesn't want it in the freezer. Well, it thaws, and after a fly and a kitten, the creature moves on to human prey.
This is a strange film with camp pushed to its limits. Nothing is safe from the creature in this small town and nothing is same from the film makers. Hippies, hairdos, hobos, and the strangest barber since Monty Python's Michael Palin are just the tip of the iceberg is this strange film. There is even a clip from a certain Steve McQueen film. It fits into the blob scenarios the same way that Godzilla vs The Smog Monster fits with the rest of the Godzilla films.
The effects are pretty good (foreshadowing those of the remake) but the acting and pacing make it more like a sketch comedy version. This is like a case of the moth and the flame, you know it is bad for you but you are still drawn to it. Check it out.

Beware! The Blob (Larry Hagman, 1972)

I was jaded very, very early. I used to boast to my grade-school pals that I could eat ham sandwiches while watching The Exorcist. (Remember, kiddies, when I was in grade school, The Exorcist was still in theaters.) Movies just don't scare me. With, that is, a few notable, and mostly entirely unjustifiable, exceptions. Beware! The Blob is one of those. I didn't sleep voluntarily for months after I first saw this movie on the Friday late-night creature feature. To this day, I have no idea what it was that scared the tar out of me so badly thirty years ago. Now it's a whole other story; Dick van Patten's acting is a large part of it, to be sure.

The story: a geologist (Godfrey Cambridge, best remembered these days as Gravedigger Jones) brings back a sample from above the arctic circle (funny, I thought they took the beast the other way in the Steve McQueen movie...). Through various bits of forgetfulness, the sample is left to thaw on the counter, and the blob gets out to wreak havoc on another small town. Lisa Clark (Satan's School for Girls' Gwynne Gilford) stops in to see Chester just as the blob is devouring him, having already finished off his family, and goes screaming to her boyfriend Bobby (Easy Rider's Robert Walker) and the cops, neither of whom believe there's a big one-celled eating machine on the loose until, of course, it's entirely too late.

Now, I will start off by saying that, yes, this is an entirely awful movie. Technically, there is not a single redeeming quality about it. The acting sucks. The directing sucks. The lighting sucks. The special effects suck. The sets suck, which is pretty impressive given the number of location shots. The entire movie sucks, well and truly.

I first saw this movie when I was ten years old in 1977. It scared me because of the warning signal that told the audience that the blob was near. There was one scene that was very impressive,which was the scene with the shadow of the blob on the barn. The shadow indicated how big the blob got since the beginning of the film. The blob ate all the animals and then the three hippies. Burgess Meredith and Larry Hagman were two of the hippies in that scene. The cast of the film is likeable and there are plenty of veteran actors like Richard Webb and Shelley Berman. For its time,Beware! The Blob was scary! Something like this blob can make its way to earth someday. No one knows for sure what is out there in outer space. This creature keeps moving or rolling along with no eyes or hands or legs. It is a shapeless mass of life-form. What the creature looks like makes it a scary creature. This movie is far better than the ridiculous movie made in 1988. That movie has too many special effects with stupid scenes. Beware! The Blob is a decent low-budget horror/comedy that is worth seeing! These old movies can`t be beat! Thank you!!

When I was a kid, I loved horror movies. I even collected those monster trading cards. There was only one movie that scared me and that was Beware! The Blob! I don't know exactly why it scared me. So I waited and waited expecting it to come on tv again after all these years. So I figured, buy it and get a kick out of it. So if you want to get a movie just to get a good enjoyable laugh check it out. Larry Hagman did a good job as director in the flick.

When Larry Hagman came back from acting purgatory to become a superstar as J.R. Ewing on "Dallas," most folks saw this as being a big step up from being on "I Dream of Jeanine." But Hagman's most pathetic moment really game with this 1972 film that he directed. "Beware! The Blob" (a.k.a. "Son of the Blob") is both a sequel to and a spoof of the 1958 Science Fiction Drive-In class "The Blob," starring Steve McQueen. He is long gone, and this time it is Robert Walker, Jr. (Charlie X on "Star Trek") who gets the responsibility of fight the big bad blob. The plot is essentially the same as the original. An unsuspecting guy brings back a sample of frozen goo from Alaska, where he was working on the pipeline. The goo thaws, starts with a fly, works through a cat, and then an entire family. The devouring is witnessed which means the heroine, Lisa (Gwynne Gilford) and her boyfriend, Bobby (Walker) spend time trying to convince the local sheriff that a giant red blob thing is eating people. Meanwhile the giant red blob thing is eating everybody, which pretty much means a complete cross-section of Seventies stereotypes.
Hagman must have called in a lot of I.O.U.'s because Burgess Meredith, Dick Van Patten, Godfrey Cambridge, and Shelly Berman all show up to be consumed by the red goo (watch for Hagman's cameo as a bum). If there was ever an attempt to actually make a serious horror film here, then it must have been abandoned early on in the production. Very few of the actors seem to be taking this thing seriously and Walker just does not have the heft to be the manly hero. As a horror film "Beware! The Blob" is not scary and as a spoof it is not funny beyond the sophomoric level of the decidedly lame. The death scenes are not particularly creative, although the special effects are really not that inept, but you get the feeling some of these victims are happily throwing themselves into the giant red blob thing.
