They say that the simple ideas are usually the best, and it doesn't get much simpler than this:
There's a big blob, and it's coming for you!
And the idea is so great, that it worked several times over, making it a very rare instance of a remake being of almost equal quality as the original.
Still, even though the remake had heaps better effects and a truckload of faces you recognize from practically all other 80's horror flicks, the 1958 Blob has a sense of style as well as Steve McQueen.
I think it's an easy pick.
new remake apparently coming in 2011, with.
(stay away from the 1972 version though. Trust me when I say it is not worth hunting down.)
