Remake of the 1958 horror sci-fi about a deadly blob which is the spawn of a secret government germ warfare project which consumes everyone in its path. Teenagers try in vain to warn the townsfolk, who refuse to take them seriously, while government agents try to cover up the evidence and confine the creature.

Note to Erika's Appearance:

In this movie you can see Erika for 1 minute and 53 seconds. She plays beery young chick on a date in a car in deep forest with some local playboy. At the end of her appearance The Blob gets into her, Erika turns into monster and eats the guy. (On some channels like TNT this scene's removed.) Well, there is not much to show when you have to play beery girl.
