8. The Blob (The Original, 1958)
I mean, it’s the Blob. Sure, some people saw the title and thought “school lunches,” but the truly visionary embraced this gelatinous muck for what it really was – B-Horror gold. The pop culture flick was part of the new drive-in culture to attract teenagers, who were hopefully watching the movie and not making out. Though I doubt they screamed, so much as laughed, when the silicone-based blob, in various shades of red thanks to vegetable dye, consumed its victims. And if you want to continue the B-Horror love after the movie, head to Pennsylvania for the annual “Blobfest,” where re-enactments of Steve McQueen’s performance are top-shelf entertainment.
