* YouHaveToBelieveMe: Particularly notable in this one, in which the leading lady is not believed... mainly because she just keeps mewling "It came ''after'' us!" ''ad infinitum.''

Added DiffLines:

* DeadStarWalking: Of the five actors advertised on the film's poster, only Robert Walker has any more than a few minutes of screentime. And of the remaining four, only Godfrey Cambridge's character has any particular relevance to the story outside of being a random Blob victim, and even then only because he happens to be the poor schmuck who unwittingly retrieves a sample of the original Blob and allows it to thaw out.


* InfantImmortality: A [[ScoutOut junior campers troop]] is attacked (offscreen) by The Blob. The scout leader is killed, the kids escape.
