Plot summary

After a meterotie crashes, it releases a Blob like creature that begins to absorb the people of a nearby town.


Synopsis

A meteorite crashes near the town of Arborville, California; an elderly transient discovers, within the sphere, a jelly-like substance (the Blob) that attaches itself to his hand. Five high school students, Brian Flagg, Meg Penny, Anataria Wilson, Christina Chang and Paul Taylor, encounter the man and take him to a hospital. After Brian leaves, Paul witnesses the lower half of the transient melting from exposure to the Blob. As he calls for help, the Blob drops on top of him. Meg and Anataria arrive to see Paul being devoured by the growing Blob and while trying to free him his arm is torn from his body, Meg is thrown against a wall and knocked unconscious, while Anataria is killed and the Blob oozes out of the hospital.

After Brian, Christina and Meg have unsatisfactory encounters with the police, they meet at a diner where Meg tells Brian and Christina about the Blob. Christina automatically believes her but Brian is incredulous. Brian's disbelief is shattered when the diner's handyman is grabbed and pulled head first through the sink drain by the Blob. It pursues them to the diner's walk-in freezer where it retreats because it cannot tolerate cold. After eating the diner's owner and the town's sheriff, the Blob reenters the sewers. Meg, Christina and Brian return to the police station, where the dispatcher tells them Deputy Briggs is near the meteor-landing site. They discover a military operation led by a scientist, Dr. Meddows, who orders the town quarantined. Brian escapes a military van and collects his motorbike. Meg and Christina are taken to town where they learn Meg's younger step-brother Kevin is missing. Meg learns he and his friend Eddie have sneaked into the local theater to see a slasher thanks to Eddie's usher brother Anthony. The Blob infiltrates the theater and attacks the staff and then the audience. Meg and Christina arrive as the audience is fleeing the theater and manage to rescue Eddie and Kevin.

Brian eavesdrops on Meddows speaking to his assistant Jennings and learns that the Blob is a biological warfare experiment created during the Cold War. Anthony then reports that he witnessed The Blob chasing Meg, Kevin, Christina and Eddie into the sewers. Brian overhears Meadows decide to trap The Blob in the sewers, and that he is willing to let Meg, Kevin, Christina and Eddie die to do so. Brian is discovered listening in and evades military personnel by driving his motorcycle into the sewers. In the sewers, Meg, Eddie, Christina and Kevin flee from the Blob. Kevin and Eddie escape to the surface by scaling a pipe and squeezing through a grate. Meg and Christina are saved by Brian, who confronts Meddows in front of the townsfolk and Briggs. After failing to convince everyone Brian is contaminated and must die, Meddows attempts to shoot Brian, but is killed by the Blob as it oozes into his chemical suit and drags him into the sewer. The Blob proceeds to feast upon the population, proving impervious to the military's attempts to stop it (getting shot multiple times while in the sewer and blown up, which only angered it). In the ensuing panic, the town's Reverend Meeker proclaims the scene to be the prophesied end of the world, after which a failed flamethrower attack on the Blob sets him ablaze. Meg saves him with a fire extinguisher, and in the process blasts the Blob with it. The monster backs off, and she realizes that it cannot stand cold.

The surviving humans retreat to the town hall and hold the Blob at bay with furniture-barricades and fire extinguishers, but it is a losing battle, as a result with the Blob engulfing half of the building and devouring Briggs. Brian goes to the town's garage and gets a snow maker truck that has canisters of liquid nitrogen attached. Just as the Blob is about to devour Meg, her family, Eddie and Christina, Brian drives to town hall and shoots snow at the creature, which is angered and knocks the truck over. As the Blob surges toward Brian, Meg lures it away from him towards the canisters–which she has rigged with an explosive charge taken from a dying soldier. She tries to get clear, but snags her foot between two pieces of metal, leaving her dangling upside down. Christina helps Brian regains consciousness and the two run over to free her. The Blob is about to overrun them when the charge goes off, blowing up the canisters and covering the Blob with liquid nitrogen. The creature is flash-frozen, shattering into a mass of crystallized pieces. Moss Woodley has its remains hauled away to the town ice house. The film ends with Meg embracing her father, step-mother and step-brother while Brian smiles at her.
