The Blob (1958)
The gelatinous, faceless terror is as silly as they come, which gives it a kind of temporary charm. You'll need an appreciation of that kind of thing to enjoy it because it’s no better than some of the other 1950s 'monster from space' movies. In fact, it actually has less to offer than some of the others.
I got some jollies laughing at the idiots poking the alien rock with a stick. Mankind no longer lives in caves but we still love our poking-sticks.
