Sci-Fi movie title memory-fu failure

Help me remember a dimly remembered childhood sci-fi flick from the '50's or 60's...

I am not sure about the accuracy of any of these details...but maybe it will be recognizable to someone. I remember black bits of goo falling from the sky and attaching to the back of the neck of human victims. The goo then would seek to reconnect with it's fellow goo bits resulting in a mountainous animated mass o' black goo in a (domed?) building which was viewed in horror by one of the 'good guys' though a porthole-like window. I do have the impression that it may have been British. That's it... I admit it is not much to go on. Thanks.

Not British, but, it wasn't this episode of Star Trek by any chance?

The H-Man (1958 Japan) When a narcotics deal goes sour and a suspect disappears, leaving only his clothes, Tokyo police question his wife and stake out the nightclub where she works. His disappearance stumps the police - until a young scientist appears who claims that H-Bomb tests in the Pacific, evidenced by a "ghost ship" that has turned up in the harbor, have created radioactive creatures - "H-Men" - who ooze like slime and dissolve anyone they touch.

Best answer: Quatermass 2?

Response by poster: Quatermass 2 sure sounds like it. Now I am off to find a copy. :)
Thanks so much for your help.

The first one is also really good if you like this sort of thing (though it's not at all necessary to see it before seeing Q2).

Note that Quatermass 2 is also known as "Enemy From Space" -- that's the US release name. Also there earlier, made-for-British-TV versions of the Quatermass films which some say were better, and now you can find them YouTube.
