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.

You have GOT to see this movie to believe it. The music is better (or cheesier) than Austin Powers (Whammy bar electric guitars twang along while a pretentious singer who sounds like Elvis on Ludes wails "Green SLIME! Green Slime!") Richard Jaeckal (of The Dirty Dozen fame) is unintentionally hilarious as the space station Rambo. He grits his teeth every time the camera is on him (no exaggeration!) But the stars of this movie have to be the one-piece, rubber suited, one-eyed monsters with the electric touch. I saw this when I was 15, and I still remember laughing at them, and at the space station hanging on its wires, burning in space (The flames and smoke RISE UP...in space, get it?) All in all, a spectacularly bad movie...so bad its great.
