"The Blob", 1958; it indeed crawled out of the woodwork (or from a spaceship)

Recently I promised an entry on this movie, “The Blob”. 

Steve McQueen led the high school bunny crowd back in 1958 for Paramount, as an amorphous life form (like a slime mold) consumers all in its path, including people.

I seem to remember a scene where it sits on a chair like a cat.

The idea of a siphonophore animal with little differentiation in internal tissue but still able to eat things, is rather fascinating.

There was a remake in 1988 (Cinedigm).
