As the group is driving away from the airport, they come across a car that had been attacked by the Slime People. In a close-up you can see a couple of other vehicles parked behind it through the car's window, however in a wide view the car is up against the side of a hill and no other vehicles would have been visible.

Good for vintage drive-in movie fans, or MST3K fans. It's one of the cheaper and more amateurishly done films of that ilk, but the makers of the movie approached it with zeal, and it has that goofy charm so inherent to these drive-in B-features.
Creatures from underneath LA emerge with an attitude, a hunger to kill, and a fog machine that would make any 70's disco the place to be. The fog's effect on what is visible on the screen has to be seen to be believed. One of my favorite fog-bank moments was a fight between two humans and a group of slime creatures. You hear grunts behind swirls of smoke, but who's winning? Who knows?
Anyway, we travel with a scientist, his two daughters, and two hero guys they meet. The girls and guys quickly get romantic, and the slime people chase them all over the place. The acting is questionable, but I've seen far worse. The characters are likable enough, and the plot rolls along nicely, with some routine monster movie elements. Well, when there's no fog and you can see, anyway.
