What It’s About: An ever-growing, ever absorbing mass falls to Earth and begins to eat its way through a small town. Can some way be found to stop it before it consumes the world?
Why Watch it Today?: On this date last year a 15 ton “fatberg” made up of discarded fats and baby wipes was blasted out of the London sewer system with high-powered water jets. Let’s pray that we never see a sentient fatberg, or today’s movie will look like a prophecy.
Other Choices: The original Blob, which features a very similar plot but less gore.
