Film: The Blob (1958), Beware! The Blob (1972)
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: Almost always ends up the size of a small building.
Summary: What if the monster had no form whatsoever? Where would it have a weakness? How could you fight against it? How would you escape it? These are questions no man would have any time to answer as the Blob oozes its way across the land, absorbing all that get in its way.
History: Arriving in the center of a meteorite that fell from space, the Blob started out small, but then an old man touched it, and after being sent to the doctor, it nabbed a few others. Pretty soon, the amorphous monster was growing at a phenomenal rate with each person it ate. After causing large amounts of havoc, the Blob was put to a halt after being frozen and sent to the Arctic. Unfortunately, a guy working there brought a sample of it to LA for the higher-ups to study. Then a fly touched it, and the whole thing started all over again...
Notable Kills: This thing kills a kitten. No more will be said.
Final Fate: After killing many in an ice rink, the Blob is eventually frozen again. But a bit of it manages to thaw out as the humans stand allegedly victorious. Oh, well, maybe this time the world won't forget that exploitable weakness like it inexplicably did. Right?!
Powers/Abilities: Having no body or internal organs, the Blob is pretty much indestructible, and grows bigger with everything it eats.
Weakness: Extremely cold temperatures render it harmless.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-The Blob might be one of the scariest monsters to ever come out of the 50s, and that's a decade when Godzilla first destroyed Tokyo. Thoughtless, unkillable, unstoppable, and with a bottomless appetite, there's no possible way this blood-red thing could get any worse. Oh, wait...16 years later...
Trivia: -Ever since 2000, the residents of Phoenixville, PA have celebrated the cultural significance of the Blob with a little event known as "Blobfest". The main event is replicating the infamous theater scene by having the masses run out of the same theater the Blob attacked, as well as other activities.
-The Blob was made from pure silicone, with a dash of vegetable dye.
