Caltiki: “Archaeologists investigating some Mayan ruins come across a blob-like monster. They manage to destroy it with fire, but keep a sample. Meanwhile, a comet is due to pass close to the Earth – the same comet passed near the Earth at the time the Mayan civilization mysteriously collapsed. Coincidence?” (James Barrett)
“Yes, this is the movie we ran out of … my younger sister crying and the rest of us equally scared out of our pants. For years on end we have remembered this movie but never been able to find it…… a great 50s Blob movie and one that brings back memories of that day when me and my brothers and sisters went to the Saturday matinĂ©e and were scared out of our wits… having to leave soon after the greedy scientist loses his hand to the Blob after he goes back for the bag of gold jewels.” (pgspat)

Watch Ernest Dickerson dissect the Caltiki trailer on Trailers from Hell.
