Jack H. Harris, the cheapie producer who went on to make the forgettable MOTHER GOOSE A GO-GO, struck it rich with this silly picture that gave McQueen his first starring role after a few supporting jobs in SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME and NEVER LOVE A STRANGER. It's a teenage horror tale as McQueen and Corseaut tell their tiny Pennsylvania town that they've seen this purple goop that's eating people up. Naturally, no one believes them.

A sequel was made called BEWARE THE BLOB, also known as SON OF BLOB. The title was what brought the people in to see this otherwise undistinguished movie. McQueen plays his role with believability, as he did almost everything in his brief career. The oddest thing about the movie is the title song

by Hal David and a 29-year-old composer named Burt Bacharach. It's not a bad tune.
