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.

Only for the hard core.
22 February 1999 | by (Springfield, VA) – See all my reviews

The Slime People would only appeal to the hard core lover of early science fiction movies. The over extensive use of the fog machine makes it difficult to see some of the scenes clearly enough to follow the action. The traditional wholesome characters (50's style, men at table discussing important things, woman putting away the dishes) engaging in supposedly serious discussions/explanations of the Slime folks "wall of fog" is just plain funny. But when all is said and done the movie did entertain me, but certainly not for everyone. Hats off to the actress stuck playing Bonnie, the dumb blonde teenager.
