Quote: The Blob returns... more outrageous than ever in this 1972 sequel to the popular sci-fi classic! Plenty of familiar faces, including Robert Walker Jr., Larry Hagman, Sid Haig, Burgess Meredith, Dick Van Patten, Godfrey Cambridge, Cindy Williams, Carole Lynley, Gerrit Graham, and Shelley Berman add to the fun. A geologist (Cambridge) unwittingly brings home an unusual frozen piece of debris from the North Pole. But when it accidentally thaws, the hungrier-than-ever Blob comes to life again, consuming nearly everyone in its path and terrorizing the town. No one is safe as it crawls into a bowling alley, oozes its way across an ice rink, becoming grotesquely bloated with the blood of its victims... can this bizarre creature ever be stopped? TV legend Larry Hagman directed this cult classic, the only feature film he ever directed - upon its 1980s re-release, the film was tagged "The Film that J.R. Shot!".
