Blob, The

‘It creeps! It crawls! It eats you alive!’ Steve McQueen stars in this ’50s Rowntree’s jelly-based horror of the sort that the likes of Jonathan Ross used to bore us to death with in the ’80s. But Burt Bacharach’s nifty cha-cha-cha theme tune (“Be careful of The Blob!”) and the knowledge that the belated sequel was directed by Larry Hagman will never dull.

    It leaps it creeps
    It glides and slides across the floor
    Right through the chair and all across the wall
    A splotch, a blotch
    Beware of The Blob!

    (immortal lyrics by Mack David, older brother of Hal)
