After a meteor carrying an alien substance crashes near a small town, it’s up to a high school cheerleader the town ‘bad boy’ to try to stop the blobby substance from consuming the entire town. However, things take an unfortunate turn when the military gets involved and the alien substance is looking less and less alien. Based off the 1950’s movie of the same name, this version is vastly entertaining and pretty graphic. It utilizes some of the best practical effects the 80s has to offer and offers no remorse to its characters. It’s what a horror film should be but at the same time it’s smart and very edgy.
