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

Quotes

Dr. Hans Halvorsen: But it proves out: this creature lives on energy, and discharges energy! That would explain its ability to electrocute Michaels! One cell, one microscopic speck left on a space suit, and it would absorb all the energy it could find.
Commander Jack Rankin: Wait a minute -- are you telling me that this thing "reproduced" itself inside the decontamination chamber? And, as we stepped up the current, it just... it just GREW?
Dr. Hans Halvorsen: Precisely! And they could be reproducing on any part of this station, where even a drop of this ...

The monsters are cool
15 August 2002 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

Some worthless trivia to bestow. This is the very first movie ever to be shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Boy when you watch it you can see why. This movie screams to be made fun of. I know other people have made list reviews. Well, here's another one. It's more or less general thoughts on the movie.

-very wooden acting. Robert Horton and Richard Jackel seem to be having a contest going on about who's the stiffer actor. The guys in the monsters suits are more lively than these guys.

-Oh the monsters. I like these guys. They look like something that was designed by eight year olds. Assuming that was the target audience. For rubber Japanese monsters I thought they were fairly cool. Of course I'm a sucker for goofy aliens. They move awfully slow to be scary though.

-All the sets look like cardboard. Who knows, maybe they are.

-All the models seem as if they were made out of clearance sale craft supplies. The wires they were on even look cheap.

-the title song ROCKS! I've had it stuck in my head for the past few days. Imagine the looks I get in Wal-Mart buying milk singing "The green sliiiiimmmmmme. The green slliiiimmmeeeee." I need to find a copy of that song. It's better than the whole movie.

Funny, goofy B movie. Yet another I recommend for a 'bad movie night.'
