Like any other country ,religion america has its own way of celebrating festivals .One of the most celebrated festivals in america is ‘blob fest’
There are festivals, and there are festivals. But none so unique as the Blobfest, held in mid July each year in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, a small town on the outskirts of Philadelphia. It was here in 1957 that a small group of movie makers on a very low budget filmmed The Blob, one of the best “B” Sci-Fi movies of the decade-and according to some, of all time.
More than 300 people ran screaming out of Phoenixville’s restored Colonial Theater in a reenactment of one of the most famous scenes of the movie in which the Blob, a huge gelatinous mass attacks the crowded theater. While films like The Rocky Horror Picture Show have reached nationally famous cult status, The Blob is sacred to a select few.
In the film, written by Irving H. Millgate and Kay Linaker and directed by Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr, “The Blob,” a red, gelatinous flesh-absorbing glob arrives from outer space and begins consuming residents of a small American town. The more it eats, the more it grows. Local teenagers, led by Steve McQueen, in his film debut no less, alert authorities to the danger, but no one listens-typical of teens’ predicament even today. Eventually, they win out and prevent the substance from devouring the entire town when they discover its aversion to cold.
Unlike many festivals, this is an interactive event where people can come dressed up as their favorite 1950s Sci-Fi/Horror character. And those who attend have lots of fun. There was even a wooden cutout of the Blob set up so festivalgoers could have their photos taken with their heads inside the creature.
