Storyline

A giant asteroid is heading toward Earth so some astronauts disembark from a nearby space station to blow it up. The mission is successful, and they return to the station unknowingly bringing back a gooey green substance that mutates into one-eyed tentacled monsters that feed off electricity. Soon the station is crawling with them, and people are being zapped left and right! Written by Humberto Amador

Trivia

The Japanese language version runs 77 minutes by eliminating the love triangle subplot between the three leads. See more »

Goofs

Although the asteroid Flora appears not to have an atmosphere, both billowing rocket smoke and liquid water are present, indicating air pressure. However, smoke shouldn't billow as shown in the movie when the rockets are used in the airless vacuum space. See more »

Quotes

General Jonathan B. Thompson: Well, this confirms my first guess. The only answer is to blast that thing out of the sky.
Technician: We'll never make it, chief, it's coming too fast.
General Jonathan B. Thompson: We'll just have to move faster.

Too good to be bad....
31 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You have to love a sci-fi movie that:

1) Is a Japanese-produced product featuring a mostly-Anglo cast (saves on dubbing cost).

2) Has equivalent special effects of any given "Godzilla" movie.

3) Has Italian bombshells named "Sheila Benson".

4) Gives you slime creatures that look like Sigmund the Sea Monster.

5) Has a mad doctor (isn't that a pre-requisite for these movies? Thought so.).

6) Has one of the all-time coolest title songs I have ever heard in my entire natural life.

If you watch "The Green Slime", just think: if Jaeckel had brought the rest of his "Dirty Dozen" cronies along with him, the Green Slime would never have stood a chance.

Oh well....

Seven stars. By the way, does anyone know where to get this movie's soundtrack? I have GOT to get that song....
