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
The UNSC headquarters on Earth shown near the beginning of the film is called "Lowry Field" in the foreground subtitle. In real life "Lowry Field" was located in Aurora, Colorado (just outside Denver) and was better known as Lowry Air Force Base. Science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein also used Lowry Field as a rocket base in his novel "The Man Who Sold the Moon," which may be where the script writer for The Green Slime got the idea. In real life, Lowry Field/Air Force Base was an airfield, a base for ICBMs and a military and naval intelligence analysis center. Lowry AFB was mostly closed beginning in the late 1990s (except for a DFAS building serving veterans and service people at Buckley AFB) and has since almost entirely become a "planned community" featuring mostly upscale single family homes and condominiums.

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 »
Fun, fast-moving, funky sci-fi action for "Thunderbirds" fans.
US B-Grade stars meet slimy Japanese-style men-in-monster-suit Aliens with reproductive blood who, having infiltrated a space-station and captured the interest of a new-lifeform-discovering scientist proceed to electrocute half the crew.
Funky colour schemes, futuristic 1960s-style discotheques, kooky camera angles and a crazy Blaxploitation-style theme song combine to create a groovy film, man.
Better acting than "Space: 1999".
