Concept: 1/4 (Bad)
Story: 0/4 (Terrible). But you've got to believe me! You've just got to! Oh, shut up and go kill the monster already.
Characters: 1/4 (Bad)
Dialog: 1/4 (Bad)
Pacing: 1/4 (Bad)
Cinematography: 0/4 (Terrible)
Special effects/design: 1/4 (Bad). Although, it is a nice touch how the blob turns red after it starts eating people.
Acting: 1/4 (Bad). Minus a point for the random yelling child.
Music: 3/4 (Good). I love the theme song.
Subjective Rating: 5/10 (Indifferent, 2/4). There's a fair amount of heckling value, but too much of the movie is tedious for it to be much fun to laugh at.
Objective Rating (Average): 1.1/4 (Bad)
